One Ranger – Release Date: 14th July 2023
One Ranger follows the story of a Texas ranger (Thomas Jane) as he tracks a bank robber (Dean Jagger), who is actually an international terrorist set on detonating a bomb in London.

The Rising – Release Date: 21st July 2023
An intense eight-part British supernatural crime drama series, The Rising follows Neve Kelly (Clara Rugaard), a young woman who has been murdered and is resolved to find her killer and get justice. Using her newfound supernatural abilities, Neve investigates her own death, unearthing deeply buried secrets and forcing those around her to change, confess, or cover their tracks. As she navigates her new existence, Neve’s return also causes fractures within her own family, including her estranged father, beloved mother, and step-siblings. With a unique tone and visual style, The Rising is about love, justice, and the cost of pursuing truth in a world that wants it buried.

Come back to the violent and dangerous underworld of London, where the landscape has been redrawn in the aftermath of Sean Wallace’s death.

With its signature twists and turns, brutal murders, and cinematic action sequences, Season 2 of Gangs of London promises to be as thrilling and unpredictable as ever.
