Gangs of London cast series two – what happens?

Series two of Gangs of London is set one year after the tumultuous events of series one.

It charts London’s map and soul being redrawn.

Since the collapse of the Wallace Dumani empire, order is lacking…

The energy and chaos of a gold rush threatens the city with gangland anarchy.

The Investors are viewing the city as a place of ruin and decide enough is enough.

They license a new gang to restore stability, but drama instead ensues.

The brutal enforcers bring a new kind of authority, coldly designed to terrorise the other gangs into submission.

Anyone doing business in the city must now go through them…

The gangs must decide where their loyalties lie if they are to survive.

So who will win the battle for the soul of London?

What else do we know?

Gabriel Silver – Director of Commissioning, Drama – said: “I’m delighted that Gangs of London has begun shooting on the second series – with such a stellar creative team at the helm, who’ve masterminded a brilliantly woven story for its incredible cast.
