Stars Ṣọpẹ́ Dìrísù and Joe Cole return while new behind-the-scenes talent joins the Gangs of London team.
Sky have announced the start of production on a third season of the gangster series Gangs of London.
The drama, from Pulse Films, will see Ṣọpẹ́ Dìrísù and Joe Cole reprise their roles as Elliot Carter and Sean Wallace, picking up from season two’s the cliff-hanger ending.
Here’s the synopsis for the new season:
In season three of Gangs of London, ex-undercover cop turned gangster Elliot is now operating as a top-level criminal alongside the Dumanis, but their business is thrown into chaos when their shipment of cocaine is spiked, resulting in the deaths of hundreds of civilians all over London.
The ensuing chaos attracts attention from the authorities, putting the gangs of London under pressure like never before and the ripple effects – both personal and professional – will have devastating consequences for everyone from the Wallaces, to Luan, to Lale and the street gangs. This was a targeted attack and it’s only the beginning, but the question is – who did it and why?
The upcoming eight-part run also welcomes new creative talent. Korean director Kim Hong Sun (Project Wolf Hunting) will serve as lead director while Peter McKenna joins the show as head writer. Mckenna’s writing credits include Kin, The Last Kingdom and Around The World in Eighty Days.
The show also welcomes a roster of returnees alongside Ṣọpẹ́ Dìrísù and Joe Cole. They include Michelle Fairley, Lucian Msamati and Brian Vernel. Plus, Pippa Bennett-Warner, Narges Rashidi, Asif Raza Mir, Orli Shuka, Eri Shuka, Jahz Armando and Fady Elsayed.
Gangs of London was created by Gareth Evans and Matt Flannery and is a Pulse Films production for Sky Studios and AMC+.
