'Taboo's writer Steven Knight has admitted he has enough content planned in his head to producer another two series

'Taboo' is set to get another two series.

The first installment of the drama came to an end over the weekend, but it doesn't look like fans will be kept waiting long for a follow up as the show's writer Steven Knight has enough content planned in his head for another two batches of gripping episodes.

Speaking to the Radio Times, he said: "We think it has got a two and a three certainly, that's the plan. After that who knows? This series is eight parts - it's a lot of time."

Although a second series looks likely, the BBC are yet to confirm a recommission and it appears fans will only be interested in tuning in if Tom Hardy returns as adventurer James Delaney, who returns to London to claim his legacy while fighting off enemies.

The future of 'Taboo' may look bright, but Knight's other period drama 'Peaky Blinders', which is currently in its fourth series and stars Cillian Murphy and Tom, could be heading towards a finale next year as he's already come up with the gritty ending.

Knight - who is hoping to pen a movie in the near future - explained: "Never say never, but we feel that [series] five may be the last. We don't know for sure. We will see how we feel about it. 'Peaky...' is one of those things everybody loves, and the response has been so magnificent on both sides of the Atlantic.

"I have got the end in my mind; whether that happens at the end of five is the question. I want it to end when the first air raid siren sounds in Birmingham. It is a story of a family between two world wars. It begins in 1919 when they have just come back from the war and the family's journey is towards legitimacy and respectability and to leave their past behind. The big question of the whole series is this: is that possible?"
