HBO Max has officially renewed its crime drama series Tokyo Vice for a second season.

The streamer publicly confirmed the news, with creator J.T. Rogers stating, “Writing and then making the first season of TOKYO VICE with this remarkable group of artists was a matchless experience. So I’m over the moon that we get to keep going. I can’t wait to get back to work in Tokyo with our brilliant cast and crew. Stay tuned: there are twists and turns in the tale to come!” Executive Producer Alan Poul added, “The phenomenal viewer response in both the U.S. and Japan has been so gratifying. Making the show, and keeping it authentic, has been a genuine labor of love on the part of our dedicated cast and crew, and we’re thrilled to be able to carry the story forward.”

The first season featured a stunning cast comprised of Golden Globe nominee Ansel Elgort, Academy Award nominees Ken Watanabe and Rinko Kikuchi, Rachel Keller, Ella Rumpf, Hideaki Ito, Show Kasamatsu and Tomohisa Yamashita, and is based on Jake Adelstein’s 2009 memoir:

“Loosely inspired by American journalist Jake Adelstein’s non-fiction, first-hand account of the Tokyo Metropolitan Police beat, the crime drama series, filmed on location in Tokyo, captures Adelstein’s (played by Ansel Elgort) daily descent into the neon-soaked underbelly of Tokyo in the late 90s, where nothing and no one is truly what or who they seem.”

Elsewhere in entertainment, Brett Goldstein, who plays Roy Kent, confirmed that Ted Lasso is being written to end with its third season.
