Gangs of London is back for a new season and following on from the death of Sean Wallace following the violent reckonings of series one, fans are wondering how to watch season 2, when it is released and who is in the cast?

If you love Industry Season 1 for it's London setting, you'll like this new action crime drama.

The map and soul of London has been redrawn, the surviving Wallaces are scattered, the Dumanis broken and estranged, and ex-undercover cop Elliot is now being forced to work for the investors. 

To restore order, the investors have aligned behind heroin baron Asif Afridi and together they have installed a new ruling force in London in the form of brutal gang leader - Koba. 

His vision for the criminal landscape is a dictatorship, a world in which old school gangster codes don’t exist and in which he holds a complete monopoly over London’s drug trade. But this monopoly can’t last forever. The gangs are fighting back - who will win the battle for the soul of London?

Here's all you need to know about the season 2....
