Taboo Season 2 Cast: Who Will Return?
So far, only Hardy has been confirmed to return for season two of Taboo. After all, he and his dad, Chips Hardy, were the ones who came up with the idea for the show.

Taboo Season 2: Plot
At the end of the first series, James and his remaining friends set sail for America, and Steven Knight gives us hints about where James’ story will go next. He said that in the second part, the show “goes west and gets a little bit more narcotic, more opium-influenced.” Hardy has also dropped hints that the second season of Taboo will be about the US spy network called “Colonnade.”
“When he says, ‘We are Americans,’ James doesn’t say much about what he’s going to say next,” he said. “In his mind, you’ll know when it’s the right time.”
Radio Times tried to guess what might happen in the second season of Taboo by looking at real-life events that occurred around the same time. For instance, the war between Britain and the United States was a big part of season one, but it finished soon after that chapter ended in early 1815.
“If these things happened in a second season, it might make James’ plans a little harder. If Britain and America are getting along better, how can he make them fight each other?”
James might also learn more about his family history in America, perhaps by getting in touch with the Native American tribe from which his mother came. This could also shed light on other puzzles set up in the first season, like the secret behind James’ tattoo and the less clear parts of his past.
