Gangs of London S1-2
London is for the taking. Who will rise?
Gangs of London, streaming first on Showmax, tells the story of a city torn apart following the assassination of the head of its most powerful crime family.
In the second season, a new, darker era of chaos and turbulent power struggles comes to London. One year after the violent reckonings of Season 1, the map and soul of the city has been redrawn – the surviving Wallaces are scattered, the Dumanis broken and estranged, and ex-undercover cop Elliot Finch is now being forced to work for the Investors.
As the Investors look down on a city sliding into chaos, they decide enough is enough and bring in reinforcements to restore control. Old favourites and new players fight back against the new order, forcing sworn enemies to work together and family members to betray each other.
Nominated in Season 1 for Best Drama at the BAFTAs and an Emmy for its stunts, Gangs of London is created by Gareth Evans and Matt Flannery (The Raid) and stars BAFTA nominees Paapa Essiedu (I May Destroy You), and Lucian Msamati (His Dark Materials, Game of Thrones) and more.
Gangs of London has an 84% critics rating on Rotten Tomatoes. In their four-star Season 2 review, The Independent (UK) says, “The series’ pleasures are unchanged by the years: impeccably choreographed fight scenes, quick-twitch pacing, and clever, immersive direction that takes suspense as its watchword.
