Production starts on Gangs of London 2
Production gets underway this week on the second series of high-octane thriller Gangs of London.
The show became the biggest Sky Original drama launch on Sky Atlantic for the last five years with the tx of Series One. AMC has boarded as co-producer for the second run along with Pulse Films in association with SISTER for Sky Studios.
Gangs of London was created by Gareth Evans and his creative partner Matt Flannery.
When the recommission was greenlit, Zai Bennett, Sky UK’s managing director of content, said: “Not only is Gangs of London Sky’s most binged premiere box-set this year, it’s the biggest original drama launch on Sky Atlantic of the past five years.
“It’s dark, dangerous and we are thrilled it is coming back for a second series. We couldn’t be more pleased to welcome AMC to our gang for Series two alongside the teams at Pulse Films, SISTER and Sky Studios. Will the Wallace family rise again, will the Dumanis remain loyal to their new allies and who is Elliot really working for? All these questions and more will be waiting for Sky viewers when Gangs of London returns to screens in 2022.”
Thomas Benski and Lucas Ochoa are the executive producers for Pulse Films alongside Jane Featherstone for SISTER; Gabriel Silver exec produces for Sky Studios.
