Gangs of London Season 3 Speculated Release Date and Time Slot
The exact launch date has yet to be determined, as the series was recently renewed for another season by Sky network. However, if we have to guess it can be speculated that the forthcoming season would most likely have a release window suggested to be around late 2023 or sometime in 2024, as the prior two seasons have a year gap. On the other hand, this is merely speculation, and the network will reveal all of this information in a few months. Until then, the fans should be patient and follow all the social media platforms for the series to be updated with the latest information.
In the meantime, we suggest viewers catch up with the prior season of Gangs of London, which will be available exclusively on AMC+, Amazon Prime, or fuboTV, based on the location of the users, with all previous seasons also accessible on the streaming platform with a range of membership options. It is also available to stream by renting or purchasing on Amazon Instant Video, iTunes, and Vudu. The viewers can choose the membership plan according to their preference and stream the vast catalog of the streaming service that has to offer its users exclusive tv-series and movies ranging across different genres at no additional cost with any of their services.
Gangs of London Season 3 Plot
In the second season, the viewers got to see a new, darker era of chaos and turbulent power struggles come to London. One year after the death of Sean Wallace and the violent reckonings of season one, the map and soul of the city have been redrawn – the surviving Wallaces are scattered, the Dumanis broken and estranged, and ex-undercover cop Elliot Finch (Ṣọpẹ́ Dìrísù, Humans, Mr. Malcolm’s List) is now being forced to work for the Investors. As the Investors look down on a city sliding into chaos, they decide enough is enough and bring in reinforcements to restore control. Old favorites and new players fight back against the new order, forcing sworn enemies to work together and family members to betray each other.
So, the new season is expected to carry on the plot from the final episode of the second season. In which the viewers got to see that Elliot’s conflict reaches an exhilarating dénouement; Shannon makes a grasp for power; Marian stands to lose everything; Koba faces his biggest threat yet as parties battle for control of London. Additionally, Dìrísù told Radio Times that while he was hoping for a third season, he and the team would be taking things “a step at a time”, adding that he wanted to “finish the [second] season, see how people respond to it and wait for the green light for third – if there will be one”.
Gangs of London Season 3 Cast and Crew
The second season started with the shocking death of Paapa Essiedu’s character Alexander Dumani. So it is unlikely that he will return to the series unless there are any flashback scenes. On the other hand, the main cast members of the series are expected to reprise their roles for the new season which are as follows: Sope Dirisu as Elliot Finch, Lucian Msamati as Ed Dumani, Michelle Fairley as Marian Wallace, Orli Shuka as Luan Dushaj, Eri Shuka as Mirlinda Dushaj, Pippa Bennett-Warner as Shannon Dumani, Brian Vernel as Billy Wallace, Narges Rashidi as Lale, Asif Raza as Asif, Valene Kane as Jacqueline Robinson, and Arta Dobroshi as Floriana.
The show is created by Gareth Evans and his creative partner Matt Flannery.

Tom Butterworth is the lead writer and is joined in the writers’ room by Lauren Sequeira, Danusia Samal, Rowan Athale, Meg Salter, and Elliot Warren are speculated to return for the third season. Along with Butterworth and Hardy who also serve as executive producers.
Gangs of London Season 3 Episodes and Official Trailer
It is yet to confirm how many episodes there will be, but Season 3 is expected to include 8 to 9 episodes with an average runtime of 53 to 93 minutes, just like the last two seasons. In addition to this, if we take most of the series into consideration, then the new season of Gangs of London will have the same premiere time as last season on the streaming service, which is 9 pm on a weekly basis. In order to receive updates on when the show premieres on the respective channels or streaming platforms, interested viewers can also enable notifications.
Unfortunately, the show has not even begun production of any sort which makes it clear that there is no teaser or trailer this early on to showcase any new plotlines, characters, or themes to the viewers, so they have to wait patiently for more time! In the meantime, we recommend that viewers should check out the prior season to recall all the events which will lead into the new season in case you haven’t been able to watch the show.
