Gangs of London Season 2 Extended Trailer from Stan

Published

on


As the second season of Gangs of London begins, the map and soul of London have been redrawn a year after Sean Wallace’s passing and the violent conclusions of season one.

The Dumanis are broken and estranged, the Wallace survivors are dispersed, and Elliot, a former undercover police officer, is now being made to work for the investors. The investors have united behind heroin kingpin Asif Afridi in an effort to restore order, and together they have installed a new ruling force in London in the form of violent gang leader Koba.

His idealised version of the criminal underworld is one in which he has complete control over the drug trade in London and no longer adheres to the traditional gangster codes. But the monopoly can’t continue indefinitely. Who will prevail in the struggle for London’s soul as the gangs respond?

In the brand-new season of Gangs of London, familiar faces and fresh faces will unite to fight the new system, forcing sworn enemies to cooperate and relatives to turn on one another. The series will introduce us to new characters and unexpected leaders will emerge. It is full of turns and thrilling, cinematic action sequences.
