What is the new season about?

*Warning: Season 1 spoilers ahead*

Gangs of London season 2 is set one year after the first. Since the Wallace Dumani empire collapsed, order is lacking and the chaos of a gold rush threatens the city with gangland anarchy.

The Investors attempt to restore stability by licensing a new gang. They bring a new kind of authority by terrorising the other gangs into submission.
