Gangs of London has wrapped its first season, After nine episodes of wincing as thugs chomp on ashtrays, down in cement, and have their eyes gouged out or landing face-first into a meat cleaver we can breathe for now.
The result is a nine-episode series that land all at once on Sky Atlantic on the 23 April, beginning with feature-length first episodes directed by Evans. The show centers around the fortunes of the criminal Wallace family. At the start of episode one patriarch, Finn Wallace (Colm Meaney) has been assassinated and it’s not yet clear who ordered the hit.
Wallace was one of the most powerful crime bosses in the capital with relationships with other gang leaders of various nationalities involved smuggling, trade routes, drugs, money laundering, and more.

Instead, he’s an angry young pretender to the throne hell-bent on tracking down his father’s killer whatever the cost. Despite his powerful connections, his best ally might just be low-tier lowlife Elliot (Sope Dirisu) a former squaddie who’s spotted an opportunity to rise in the ranks.
