True to its gory reputation, Gangs of London season 2 now has a deliciously ultraviolent red band trailer for us to enjoy ahead of its October 20th release date.

Despite the fact we know this is all simulated for cinema, there will invariably be moments within this latest R-rated preview when you’ll find yourself torn between wanting to rewind in sheer disbelief and recoiling away due to the visual impact.

We’re talking blood spurting from the jugular in borderline hilarious Tarantino-esque fashion, watching a bloke have his neck opened up after being dragged through jagged glass, depicting the goddamn heat from a bullet being fired into your mouth, and much… much… more (don’t say we didn’t warn you).

The sophomore instalment hails the return of all the key players: Sope Dirisu as undercover cop Elliot Finch; Michelle Fairley as Wallace crime family matriarch Marian Wallace; Brian Vernel as Marian’s elder son Billy Wallace; Valene Kane as the only non-criminal out of all the Wallace family members, Jacqueline Robinson; Pippa Bennett-Warner as Elliot’s love interest Shannon Dumani; Lucian Msamati as Wallace family associate Ed Dumani; Paapa Essiedu as Ed’s son and the Wallace empire’s likely successor, Alex Dumani; as well as Orli Shuka, Asif Raza, and Narges Rashid in their respective roles.

Newcomers such as French rapper Jasmine Armando – who is set to make her television debut – Salem Kali (Un Prophete), Aymen Hamdouchi (SAS: Red Notice), and Fady El-Sayed (Baghdad Central) will also be making an appearance in Gangs of London season 2. Although you may have gathered there’s one glaring omission…

[SPOILERS] After Elliot disarms Alex only to kill Sean Wallace (portrayed by Joe Cole) execution-style, fans have been speculating whether the latter’s death was final. Especially with the ambiguous camera framing and editing. At this stage, there have been zero confirmations about whether this story development will be made permanent for Gangs of London season 2. But I suppose we’ll find out soon enough, won’t we?

Once again, Sky Atlantic & AMC’s Gangs of London season 2 release date has been confirmed for October 20th via Stan – check out the red band trailer above and the official synopsis below:

Set a year after the events of the first season, since the collapse of the Wallace-Dumani empire, order is lacking, and the energy and chaos of a gold rush threatens the city with gangland anarchy.  

The Investors are viewing the city as a place of ruin and decide enough is enough. Licensing a new gang to restore stability, drama instead ensues. These brutal enforcers bring a new kind of authority, coldly designed to terrorize the other gangs into submission.

Anyone doing business in the city must now go through them, and our gangs must decide where their loyalties lie if they are to survive.

Now read up on everything – and I mean everything – we know about Gangs of London season 2 here. And if you’re itching to relive the brutal, brutal magic, you can now watch Gangs of London season 1 in its entirety via Stan.
