‘Tokyo Vice’ Season 2 – Release Date, Cast, Spoilers, More
Based on the real-life story of journalist Jake Adelstein, the first American supposed to hold a position at Japan’s largest newspaper, Deputy Tokyo certainly feels fresh – a bilingual series shot on location in Japan and written for Western audiences. Filming was something of a dream come true for the series’ executive producer and director Michael Mann, who spoke of the difficulty of filming in Tokyo, both practically and legally. That a series engages in such ambitious on-location filming and includes – at least at times – more Japanese dialogue than English, bodes well for future international TV productions.
At its best, the show’s first season is a frenetic journey through an underworld not often faithfully recreated for viewers. To its not so great, Deputy Tokyo relies too heavily on its conventional TV cliches and B-plots, rather than the inherently compelling and rich source material it draws from – and ultimately gets rid of.
Much of this disconnect stems from the decision to have Mann direct only the first episode of the series, which is both the closest to the series to Adelstein’s book and also the most distinct visual style the series has. will adopt during its eight episodes. After the first episode, the series returns to making television movies and plotting more conventional stories. The result is a series that can feel so disparate in its direction that one must continually convince oneself that the opening episode was indeed part of the series and not an introductory fever dream – and the best fever dream, at that. .
Yet the result remains an invigorating entry into so-called “true crime” television. We just hope the series returns to its visually more ambitious early installments in future seasons.
Speaking of which, here’s what we know so far about Deputy Tokyo season 2.
East Deputy Tokyo Get a season 2?
The short answer: it’s still not clear. HBO has yet to make an announcement about a future season, although as of now it doesn’t appear the series will be cancelled.
According to analytical data, the demand for Deputy Tokyo rose over 18% over the average TV series, making the show a clear winner for HBO’s streaming platform. The series has also been favorably reviewed and currently has an 85% rating on Rotten Tomatoes with an even higher Audience Score at 91%.
The series appears to be a winner for HBO Max and will likely be considered for future seasons; the end of the series is definitely setting up for at least another 8 episode run.
Who will be in season 2?
Probably the biggest question that haunts any future production is whether Ansel Elgort would reprise his role as Jake Adelstein in Season 2.
Elgort began filming the series in early 2020. In June, Elgort was accused of sexual assault by a Twitter user. The tweet has since been deleted. Shortly after, two other Twitter users accused Elgort of sending them nude photos when they were underage. Elgort denied the allegations. He has not been charged with a crime.
Still, the allegations have affected production on West Side Storyand in particular, co-star Rachel Zegler, who was constantly asked about the allegations in press interviews.
Elgort was cast in both West Side Story and Deputy Tokyo before the allegations surfaced.
