Trailer for the Long Awaited Second Season of Max’s ‘Tokyo Vice’ Has Hit

Crime will be Making a Comeback in Season 2 of J.T. Rogers’ 'Tokyo Vice'

The second trailer of J.T. Rogers’ crime drama television series Tokyo Vice has just been released. According to Variety, the second season will contain ten episodes, where two episodes will be released on February 8, 2024, and the rest to follow with one every week. 

Tokyo Vice takes place in 1999 and centralizes on Jake Adelstein (Ansel Elgort), who moved to Tokyo to become a journalist. After passing the Japanese entrance exam to a Japanese newspaper company, he soon becomes involved in a side of Japan that he has never seen before– one filled with crime, drama, and violence. Elgort stars alongside Ken Watanabe, who plays Hiroto Katagiri, another detective who guides him in the Japanese crime world. After commencing his acting career with the film Carrie (2013), he became known for his performances in The Fault In Our Stars (2014), The Divergent Series (2014-2016), and Baby Driver (2017), which earned him a Golden Globe Award nomination for Best Actor in a Motion Picture Musical or Comedy.

Tokyo Vice: A Lookback On Season 1

Season 1 of Tokyo Vice premiered on April 7, 2022, and contained eight episodes. The show is based on the memoir Tokyo Vice: An American Reporter on the Police Beat in Japan by the author Jake Adelstein, published in 2009. Besides Elgort and Watanabe, the show also stars Rachel Keller, Hideaki Itō, Shō Kasamatsu, Ella Rumpf, Rinko Kikuchi, and Tomohisa Yamashita. 

It was filmed in Tokyo, Japan, and produced by Ralph Winter and Satch Watanabe. It was also executively produced by the author of the original memoir, Jake Adelstein, with Michael Mann, J.T. Rogers, Alan Poul, Ansel Elgort, Emily Gerson Saines, Kayo Washio, Brad Caleb Kane, Destin Daniel Cretton, and Ken Watanabe.  

Season 1 left fans with a cliffhanger, which only means that the upcoming season will answer fans’ questions about the fate of Sato (Shô Kasamatsu). 

Stream Season 2 of Tokyo Vice on February 8 on HBO Max.
