Gangs Of London came out of nowhere a couple of years ago and instantly became one of our favourite shows. The intricately plotted, gloriously violent show was from the mind of Gareth Evans, best known for The Raid action crime films, with Matt Flannery. The fight and action choreography, along with the gunplay was epic.

For 20 years, Finn Wallace (Colm Meaney) was the most powerful criminal in London. Billions of pounds flowed through his organisation each year. When he is assasinated, nobody knows who ordered the hit. As a power struggle engulfed the city his impulsive son  Sean (Joe Cole), with the help of the Dumani family headed by Ed Dumani (Lucian Msamati), fight to restore order while uncovering who was behind Finn’s death.

The Albanian Mafia, the Kurdish freedom fighters, the Pakistani Drug Cartel, the Welsh travellers and various other criminal elements all jockey for position. The synopsis for the new episodes says:

“One year after the violent reckonings of series one, the map and soul of London has been redrawn. The surviving Wallaces are scattered, the Dumanis broken and estranged, and Elliot is now being forced to work for the investors.

To restore order, the investors have aligned behind heroin baron Asif Afridi and together they have installed a new ruling force in London in the form of brutal gang leader – Koba.

His vision for the criminal landscape is a dictatorship, a world in which old school gangster codes don’t exist and in which he holds a complete monopoly over London’s drug trade. But this monopoly can’t last forever. The gangs are fighting back. The question in the end remains, who will win the soul of London?”

The new season features returning favourites like Ṣọpẹ́ Dìrísù, Paapa Essiedu, Lucian Msamati, Michelle Fairley, Orli Shuka, Pippa Bennett-Warner, Brian Vernel, Narges Rashidi, Asif Raza, and Valene Kane back to reprise their roles.

The season will also include new faces like Waleed Zuaiter as Koba, French rapper Jasmine Armando in her first TV role as Saba, Fady El-Sayed as Faz, Salem Kali as Basem and Aymen Hamdouchi as Hakim.
