Sky and AMC today announced the renewal of Gangs of London for a second season, for which AMC boards as co-producer. The 10-episode first season of the acclaimed action-packed thriller — the biggest Sky Original drama on Sky Atlantic of the past five years — will premiere in the US on AMC this fall.

Said Dan McDermott, President of Original Programming for AMC and Co-President of AMC Studios:

Gangs of London is a cinematic thrill ride that set screens ablaze with a stellar cast, elevated drama and epic storylines, and we couldn’t be more excited to raise the pulse of our audiences with this explosive crime series.”

Added Zai Bennett, Sky UK’s Managing Director of Content”

“Not only is Gangs of London Sky’s most binged premiere box-set this year, it’s the biggest original drama launch on Sky Atlantic of the past five years. It’s dark, dangerous and we are thrilled it is coming back for a second series.”

Set in the heart of one of the world’s most dynamic and multicultural cities, Gangs of London tells the story of a city being torn apart by the turbulent power struggles of the international gangs that control it and the sudden power vacuum that’s created when the head of London’s most powerful crime family is assassinated.

The series stars a multi-talented ensemble cast including Joe Cole (Peaky Blinders), Sope Dirisu (Humans), Colm Meaney (Star Trek), Lucian Msamati (His Dark Materials), Michelle Fairley (Game of Thrones), Paapa Essiedu (Press), and Pippa Bennett-Warner (Harlots).

For 20 years, Finn Wallace (Meaney) was the most powerful criminal in London. Billions of pounds flowed through his organization each year. But now he’s dead — and nobody knows who ordered the hit. With rivals everywhere, it’s up to the impulsive Sean Wallace (Cole), with the help of the Dumani family, headed by Ed Dumani (Msamati), to take his father’s place.

If the situation wasn’t already dangerous enough, Sean’s assumption of power causes ripples in the world of international crime. Perhaps the one man who might be able to help him and be his ally is Elliot Finch (Dirisu), who, up until now, has been one of life’s losers, a lowlife chancer with a mysterious interest in the Wallace family. Soon Elliot finds himself transported to the inner workings of the largest criminal organization in London. But it doesn’t end with the Wallaces; there are shadowy higher powers at play.

A production of Pulse Films in association with Sister for Sky Studios, Gangs of London is created by Gareth Evans and his creative partner Matt Flannery.

Season two was commissioned by Zai Bennett, Sky UK’s Managing Director of Content, and Cameron Roach, Director of Drama at Sky Studios, with Gabriel Silver as the Executive Producer for Sky Studios. Thomas Benski and Lucas Ochoa are the executive producers for Pulse Films alongside Jane Featherstone for Sister.

Stay tuned for updates about the US premiere of Gangs of London on AMC.
