“Tokyo Vice,” the HBO Max crime drama series based on Jake Adelstein’s 2009 memoir, has been officially renewed for a second season. 
The show’s renewal was confirmed by the streaming service, with show creator J.T. Rogers stating, “I’m over the moon that we get to keep going. I can’t wait to get back to work in Tokyo with our brilliant cast and crew. Stay tuned: there are twists and turns in the tale to come.” 
Executive Producer Alan Poul shared this sentiment: “The phenomenal viewer response in both the U.S. and Japan has been so gratifying. Making the show, and keeping it authentic, has been a genuine labor of love on the part of our dedicated cast and crew, and we’re thrilled to be able to carry the story forward.”
With a star-studded cast including Academy Award nominee Ken Watanabe and Golden Globe nominee Ansel Elgort, “Tokyo Vice” centers on the story of the American journalist Jake Adelstein (Ansel Elgort) and his journey into Tokyo’s Metropolitan Police beat and underbelly in the late ‘90s. 
In addition to Elgort and Watanabe, the series also stars Rinko Kikuchi, Rachel Keller, Ella Rumpf, Hideaki Ito, Show Kasamatsu and Tomohisa Yamashita. 
Behind the scenes, Rogers is responsible for writing the series, and executive producers include Elgort, Aldenstein, Watanabe, Michael Mann, Alan Poul, Emily Gerson Saines, Brad Kane, Destin Daniel Cretton, Kayo Washio and John Lesher.
The release date for Season 2 has yet to be announced.
