GANGS of London director Corin Hardy has teased fans with high hopes for season 2 of the hit show.
And while the next instalment is yet to be confirmed there are 'big ideas' in store.
The director told Metro Online: "I think there’s lots of things up for grabs and we’ve got a lot of big ideas but obviously it’s up to the crowd watching if there’s another one."
Creator Gareth Evans, previously told viewers: "There’s room for it. Without giving too much away, we definitely end the season on a note where people will be wanting more and asking what is happening next.
"I’m treading carefully! It’s sort of a cliff-hanger but as most things it’s a story that takes on a lot of different aspects, there’s a lot of different characters in there, a lot of vested interests, there’s a lot of stray threats trailing in the wind ready to be picked up again."
GOL star Paapa Essiedu who plays businessman Alexander Dumani told Sunday Brunch that he wasn't sure of their next move, but had his fingers crossed.
He told hosts Tim Lovejoy and Simon Rimmer: "I mean, who knows who’s gonna happen in the future right now?
"We’re definitely hopeful of where we can take the characters in the future."
The Sky Atlantic programme has followed the battles between rival mobs operating in England’s modern-day capital city.
The critically acclaimed series has captivated audiences with its nine episodes of mystery, gang violence and family drama, with many viewers calling for more.
Gangs of London has been such a hit NME even suggested "it could well wind up challenging for the title of best crime drama on British TV."
Director Gareth was reluctant to reveal too much about any upcoming seasons, but did reveal to The Sun Online there was potential for more stories to be made from the series.
Gareth said: "I think they [Sky and producers] are currently figuring that out.
"I think everyone's waiting to see what the reaction is to this first season. Naturally, there are certain story threads that are hanging in the air a little bit by the end of the first one."
He added: "So obviously there's potential and space for that to continue.
"But I think it's all it's all a case of like, wait and see at this point. It's a little too early in the day to kind of like, really sort of say too much about any of the any of the plans."
But actor Sope Dirisu who plays Elliot Finch – the wannabe gangster hiding a big secret – went one step further to say there was "intent" to make more of the gory drama.
He told The Sun Online: "It really depends on viewing figures. We've already been out a couple of weeks so far and we haven't released internationally yet.
"So it really depends on how well it's received when all is said and done.
"I think there's definitely the intent for it."
The action follows Sean and the aftermath of the murder of Finn (Colm Meany) who was the top gangster in London for 20 years.
Gangs of London has built quite the reputation for its levels of gore – and one particular torture scene has left viewers squirming and it looks set to thrill viewers some more.
