Tom Hardy in the new Taboo Season 1 promo

FX has revealed the new Taboo Season 1 promo, which you can watch in the player below!

Starring and executive produced by Academy Award nominee Tom Hardy (Mad Max: Fury Road, The Revenant), the Taboo miniseries is also executive produced by Ridley Scott and Steven Knight, who, with Hardy, created the eight-episode drama. Taboo will premiere in January 2017.

Set in 1814, the Taboo miniseries follows James Keziah Delaney (Hardy), a man who has been to the ends of the earth and comes back irrevocably changed. Believed to be long dead, he returns home to London from Africa to inherit what is left of his father’s shipping empire and rebuild a life for himself. But his father’s legacy is a poisoned chalice, and with enemies lurking in every dark corner, James must navigate increasingly complex territories to avoid his own death sentence. Encircled by conspiracy, murder, and betrayal, a dark family mystery unfolds in a combustible tale of love and treachery.

Taboo is based on an original story by Tom Hardy and his father, Chips Hardy, who is also the show’s consulting producer.

Ridley Scott’s Scott Free London and Tom Hardy’s Hardy Son & Baker are producing for FX and BBC One with Sonar Entertainment distributing worldwide outside the UK. Executive producers are Ridley Scott and Kate Crowe for Scott Free, Tom Hardy and Dean Baker for Hardy Son & Baker, and Steven Knight, with Timothy Bricknell producing. Taboo is directed by Kristoffer Nyholm and reunites Hardy and Knight for their third collaboration following Locke and Peaky Blinders.
