HBO Max has renewed the Max Original drama series TOKYO VICE for a second season. From Endeavor Content and WOWOW, Japan’s leading premium pay TV broadcaster, the first season, which debuted in April, is available to stream on HBO Max.
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.
“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!” said series creator J.T. Rogers.
