Taboo 106 Header

Yesterday as I sat watching TV, I felt a void. That void was left by Tom Hardy’s James Keziah Delaney, last seen sailing off with his League of the Damned towards the US on the season finale of Taboo. The FX series, a passion project for Hardy, was one of the best new shows on television in the early stages of 2017. The short 8-episode run ended February 28th. Good news for fans of the series though, as BBC One and FX have ordered a second season.

More below.

The show focused on James Delaney, a thought-dead sailor who returns at his father’s funeral inheriting a trade empire that includes a critical piece of land on the other side of the world. This draws him into conflict with the East India Company and the Crown, for he who controls the seas, controls the trade with the far east. Set in the dirty streets on 1814 London, Taboo lives up to its name. Delaney is involved in an incestuous relationship with his half sister Zilpha (Oona Chaplin), and many of his supporters and followers are prostitutes, cross dressers, alcoholics, and murderers. Hardy is so intense, and the acting and writing are tremendous throughout. Season 1 co-starred Jonathan Pryce, Franka Potente, Jessie Buckley, and Michael Kelly.

While a modest success in the US drawing approximately 1.24 million per episode, the series was a huge hit in the U.K., drawing the third highest audience to BBC iPlayer for the premiere. If you missed it, you owe it to yourself to check the show out on Amazon Video.

FX’s synopsis:

Taboo follows James Keziah Delaney, a man who has been to the ends of the earth and comes back irrevocably changed. Believed long dead, he returns to London from Africa in 1814 to inherit what is left of his father’s shipping empire. But when this legacy is revealed to be a poisoned chalice, with enemies in every dark corner, James must navigate complex territories to avoid his own death sentence
