With two weeks to go before the series premiere of “Taboo,” the BBC has released a new trailer for Tom Hardy and Ridley Scott’s period shipping drama.

Set in 1814, the dark and gritty eight-part series follows Hardy as James Keziah Delaney, a man thought to be dead who returns to London to reclaim his father’s shipping empire and rebuild his life. Though, as the new trailer shows, not everyone is happy to see him return.

Jonathan Pryce, Oona Chaplin, Stephen Graham, Michael Kelly, Jessie Buckley, David Hayman and Tom Hollander also co-star.

“Taboo” premieres in the UK on January 7 and stateside on January 10 on FX.
