The map and soul of London have been remade one year after Sean Wallace's death and the brutal reckonings of series one. The Wallaces are dispersed, the Dumanis are broken and estranged, and Elliot, the ex-undercover cop, is now compelled to work for the investors. To restore order, investors have banded together behind heroin baron Asif Afridi and installed a new ruling force in London in the form of violent gang leader Koba. His vision for the criminal environment is one of dictatorship, in which old school gangster codes are abolished and he has complete control of London's drug trade. This monopoly, however, cannot last indefinitely. The gangs are fighting back, but who will emerge victorious?

Series two will see the return of Ṣọpẹ́ Dìrísù, Paapa Essiedu, Lucian Msamati, Michelle Fairley, Orli Shuka, Pippa Bennett-Warner, Brian Vernel, Narges Rashidi, Asif Raza and Valene Kane reprising their roles.
