HBO Max’s crime drama series Tokyo Vice concluded its first season on the streaming service late last month. The first season was a complete roller coaster ride with multiple highs and lows. At the end of the first season, Tozawa was suffering from liver disease and planned to go to the US for a transplant. Meanwhile, Katagiri and Jake continued their investigation. Now fans are waiting for what’s next in Tokyo Vice Season 2.
Tokyo Vice is a crime drama series developed by JT Rogers and based on the true memoir of investigative journalist Jake Adelstein. The show follows Jake who goes to Japan to study at Sophia University. But he gets involved with Yakuza and the story continues.
Is Tokyo Vice Season 2 Coming?
The first season of Tokyo Vice premiered on HBO Max on April 7, 2022 and the season ended on April 28, 2022. On the other hand, there is no confirmation from HBO Max or the showrunners as far as Tokyo Vice Season 2 is concerned. However, several of the show’s crew, including co-creator J T. Rogers, have spoken out about his plans for the second season if it’s renewed.
The showrunners want to expand the premise of the story and introduce new characters in the second season. But everything is currently on the line until HBO officially gives Max Tokyo Vice Season 2 the green light.
What to expect from Tokyo Vice Season 2?
At the end of the first season, Jake considered returning to the US before obtaining a videotape that allegedly showed Polina’s murder. It was implied that Miyamoto had been murdered by Tozawa. Meanwhile, he also threatened Katagiri with his family so that the detective would stop investigating his clan. At the same time, one of the Chihari-Kai stabbed Sato.
Elsewhere, Samantha approached Ishida to lend her some money because she lost all her money in cash due to Akira’s schemes. In addition, Katagiri and Jake eventually seem to team up with each other, while Tozawa travels to an unknown destination.
When the show returns with Tokyo Vice Season 2, the story will continue after the first season ends. In the second season, Tozawa could travel to the United States for his liver transplant. We can also see Misaki trying to get Jake’s help to take out Tozawa for good. On the other hand, if Sato manages to survive, he can submit to his dark side as he goes after the attacker. Meanwhile, Jake and Katagiri continue to investigate Tozawa’s misdeeds in Tokyo Vice Season 2.
Smartest character on the show!
Katagiri is without a doubt the most intelligent character in Tokyo Vice. When fans first meet him, they see that he is brave. Despite the persuasiveness of his colleagues, he is not afraid to investigate gang-related crimes. He then demonstrates his intelligence to the public by summarizing what is going on between the Yakuza organizations. Going one step further, predicting and then trying to avoid a full fledged gang war in the city.
It’s understandable why Jake goes to him for guidance or to learn more about the culture and its unwritten customs. His years on the job have led to his calculated judgments, all of which contribute to his greater goal of preserving the peace while protecting civilians.
