HBO Max announced today that Tokyo Vice has been renewed for Season 2. The good news comes five weeks after the drama wrapped its 8-episode freshman run, which premiered in April with plenty of critical praise.

Loosely inspired by the 2009 book of the same name by Jake Adelstein, the series follows American journalist Jake Adelstein, who relocates from Missouri to Tokyo in the late 1990s to join the staff of a major Japanese newspaper on the Metropolitan Police beat as their first foreign-born reporter. He is taken under the wing of a veteran detective in the vice squad and begins exploring the dark and dangerous world of the Japanese yakuza in the underbelly of Tokyo.

Look for Season 2 of Tokyo Vice in 2023.
