Gangs Of London Season 2: Cast
As we saw in the finale episode of Season 1: how Sean gets shot and dies, we can conclude that Sean wouldn’t appear in the upcoming season until there is any sort of flashbacks. During an interview of Den of Geek with Xavier Gens, co-director of Gangs Of London said “We need to create a new one because the body count of the first season is quite elevated.” This indicates there would be some changes in the cast or we might experience the arrival of some new faces to the show. Looking at the ending of the last season, we can anticipate seeing some old faces reappear in the next season as well. The star cast might be:
- Sean’s mother Marian (Michelle Fairley), who faked her death, has a probability of returning.
- Ṣọpẹ Dìrísù as Elliot
- Paapa Essiedu as Alex
- Lucian Msamati as Ed
- Philippa Bennett-Warneras Shannon
- Arta Dobroshi as Finn’s mistress Floriana
- Narges Rashidi as Lale
- Asif Raza Mir as Asif
- Orli Shuka as Luan
- Richard Pepple as Mosi
Gang Of London Season 2: Plot
As we saw, season 1 ended with a bunch of queries! Keeping the finale episode in mind, we can assume that the next instalment of the series will start from the same place where season 1 ended. The biggest question that was left unresolved in season 1 is whether Sean will be able to survive or will die due to being shot. However, no official announcement has been released regarding the plot of season 2.
