The creator of BBC One’s Taboo is already planning at least another two seasons.
Produced by Ridley Scott and based on an original story by Tom Hardy and his father, the eight-part series is written by Peaky Blinders creator Steven Knight and is currently airing on Saturday nights on BBC One.
Taboo follows James Keziah Delaney (Tom Hardy), a man who has been to the ends of the earth and comes back irrevocably changed. Believed to be long dead, he returns home to London from Africa to inherit what is left of his father’s shipping empire and rebuild a life for himself.
Writer Steven Knight told Radio Times: “We think it has got a [Season] 2 and a [Season] 3 certainly, that’s the plan. After that who knows? This series is eight parts – it’s a lot of time.”

The fourth season of Peaky Blinders is expected to air on BBC Two this autumn.
