Tom Hardy’s “Taboo” Extended Trailer

First came the cryptic teases, then several 30-second and one 60-second commercial by FX. Now, BBC One has released a full 90-second trailer for the upcoming Tom Hardy-led series “Taboo”.

While all the previous trailers have played up the surreal aspects, this one dials it back and gives easily the best explanation as yet regarding what the show is actually about – a man returning to 1814 London from Africa to reclaim the remnants of his father’s shipping empire and seek vengeance on those responsible.

Created by Hardy and his father along with “Peaky Blinders” showrunner Steve Knight, “Taboo” begins January 7th in the UK and January 10th in the United States.
