It’s one thing to watch a good crime TV drama, but it’s quite another to see a good crime TV show based on true events.
Our inner desire to put on our nicest jackets and go on some detective adventures has always been piqued by the good old police and crime banter. What draws us into Tokyo Vice’s fascinating universe is the reasonably true crime series.
Tokyo Vice is without a doubt one of the best crime dramas on television this year. With its intriguing writing and true crime plot, the mysterious police squad drama that has a long season has captivated our attention.
With the season 1 finale episode set for April 28th, fans are wondering if their favourite news reporter will return for a second season.
Let’s review what’s transpired thus far and see where the programme is headed in the future.
Is Tokyo Vice set to return for a second season?
I guess I shouldn’t have been surprised when Tokyo Vice’s season one finale, “Yoshino,” ended on a cliffhanger. Given that the show started with a flash-forward and has yet to be formally renewed for a second season, I figured there would be some sort of conclusion.
Release Date For Tokyo Vice Season 2
In the United States, the first season ended on April 27, 2022. Season 2 of Tokyo Vice has yet to get a renewal announcement.
However, a number of people connected to the project expressed hope for a second season. If a new season is approved, a large portion of the story will have already been completed, according to the series’ creator.
Furthermore, the story has yet to reach the battle between Jake and Tozawa’s underlings that was portrayed in the series’ opening scene.
Season 2 of Tokyo Vice is set to premiere in mid-2023, assuming a very unusual renewal.
Season 2: Who Will Appear?
The most pressing question for any future production is whether or not Ansel Elgort will return as Jake Adelstein in season 2.
In early 2020, Elgort started filming the show. A Twitter user falsely accused Elgort of sexual assault in June. Since then, the tweet has been taken off. Two more Twitter users then followed suit, accusing Elgort of emailing them nude images while they were under the age of 18. The claims against Elgort have been refuted. He has not been charged with any criminal activity.
Nonetheless, the claims had an impact on West Side Story production, particularly on co-star Rachel Zegler, who was frequently questioned about the allegations in news interviews.
Prior to the allegations, Elgort had been cast in both West Side Story and Tokyo Vice.
What is the plot of Season 2 of Tokyo Vice?
Before acquiring a recording that appears to show Polina’s murder, Jake considers returning to the US in the season 1 finale. Tozawa has Miyamoto assassinated, it is strongly hinted. He also threatens Katagiri, stating that if the investigator does not stop pursuing his family, he will murder them. One of the Chihari-Kai members stabs Sato in the back. Samantha approaches Ishida for a loan after losing her entire savings to Akira’s schemes. Jake and Katagiri appear to have put their differences aside while Tozawa travels to an unknown location.
Season 2 may reveal that Tozawa has had liver transplantation in the United States. When Misaki realises she can’t wait for Tozawa to die, she can seek help from Jake. Sato will most likely lose more of his humanity as he pursues his assailant if he lives. Jake and Katagiri will very certainly need to rethink their approach to Tozawa’s investigation.
Season 2 trailer for Tokyo Vice
There isn’t a trailer for Season 2 yet. This is due to the fact that there have been no official announcements. Take a look at the first season’s trailer below.
