Tom Hardy’s new FX series Taboo finally premieres tonight at 10:00 P.M. EST. The eight-episode miniseries, written by Hardy and his father, is about an adventurer, James Keziah Delaney, who returns to Britain from Africa, along with fourteen stolen diamonds, to seek vengeance after the death of his father. The show stars Tom Hardy as James Delaney, Oona Chaplin (Game Of Thrones) as his apparent love interest Zilpha Geary, Michael Kelly (House Of Cards) as Dr. Dumbarton, and Johnathan Pryce (Game Of Thrones) as Sir Stuart Strange.
Here is the official synopsis for Taboo, which was created by Tom and his father Edward “Chips” Hardy:
In 1814, James Delaney reappears in London, a changed and haunted man, presumed dead in Africa many years before. His return finds his father, Horace Delaney, dead and a country at war with France and the United States. Set to inherit what is left of his father’s shipping empire, James’ arrival not only threatens to disrupt the plans of his half‐sister Zilpha and her husband Thorne, but also the political ambitions of the mighty East India Company, chaired by Sir Stuart Strange.
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.
As Taboo is only an eight-part miniseries, every episode is crucial, so make sure you find out how to watch the premiere below!

Taboo FX Trailer
New York Times: ” A British costume drama with doom and gloom.”
AV Club: “Every so often the wheels of the narrative churn to unveil a nugget of information that makes engaging with Taboo’s dense mystery rewarding, but whether that pays off is anyone’s guess.”
Telegraph: “The result is a curious thing, a swaggering macho brute of a series, laughable in parts yet also commendably ambitious.”
USA Today: “FX’s ‘Taboo’ is odd, unpleasant dose of Tom Hardy. It’s hard to imagine anyone but the most devoted fans of Hardy, Knight or FX having the patience to wait for it.”
LA Times: Like “Peaky Blinders,” “Taboo” is not easy watching. It requires intense focus to keep track of historical references, multiple characters and the complex storylines of his scheming enemies (or are they the good guys?).
