The fans of the hit Max original series Tokyo Vice don’t have to worry about the impact of the WGA and the SAG-AFTRA strike on the series’ second season. Because Season 2 of Tokyo Vice had finished filming before the writers and actors strike began according to Tokyo Vice producer Alex Boden, who confirmed the good news in an interview with Variety.
Boden also expressed his hope that the WGA and SAG-AFTRA strikes are resolved before the second season of the series comes out. Check out what he said below:
“Everyone involved is so proud of the work that they’ve done on this unique show — the writers, of course, but also the actors, we’ve got Ansel Elgort and Rachel Keller, who both spent a lot of time and energy learning Japanese and now speak really good Japanese. So it’d be a shame to have any kind of promotion without being able to celebrate that kind of commitment.”
Loosely based on American journalist Jake Adelstein‘s non-fiction book of the same name, the series is set in 1999 Tokyo, Japan and it follows Jake Adelstein as he dives deep into the criminal underbelly of the city with the help of the police.
Tokyo Vice stars Ansel Elgort as Jake Adelstein, Rachel Keller as Samantha Porter, Ken Watanabe as Hiroto Katagiri, Shô Kasamatsu as Sato, Rinko Kikuchi as Emi Maruyama, Ella Rumpf as Polina, and Tomohisa Yamashita as Akira.
No release date for Tokyo Vice Season 2 has been announced yet.
