In the Taboo tv series, the only thing that’s confirmed is we’ll be getting at least 3 seasons of the show. Steven Knight, the writer of Taboo has a pretty clear idea of a three-act structure in his head.
In fact, during a conversation with Collider, Knight revealed “The first was ‘the escape’, the second will be ‘the journey’, and the third will be ‘the arrival’, and that’ll be it,”
Here’s exactly what he said, “If we all stick with it and we all want to keep doing it, it would be three seasons. That’s my plan. Because I’ve got a geographical sort of route for the thing to take. It’s basically a journey west. I have a destination in mind. Which is always nice to have if you’re setting off on this big journey, which is what writing three eight-hours is. It’s good to know where you’re headed.”
As for the main cast is concerned, everything is dependent on Hardy. As of now, he’s also filming for Venom 2. Now, it all comes down to what Tom wants to do and when he wants to do it. When he’s available to start the shooting.
