Academy Award nominee Ken Watanabe teams up with Ansel Elgort for suspenseful crime thriller Tokyo Vice, which finally has its UK premiere this month on BBC One and iPlayer.
Inspired by the memoirs of American journalist Jake Adelstein, the series chronicles his time as a reporter for one of Japan’s most prominent newspapers, during which time he came into contact with the city’s dangerous criminal gangs.
The show earned strong reviews from critics upon its Stateside release several months ago, which led to it quickly scoring a renewal for season 2, meaning it’s a strong viewing option for fans of the true crime genre.
Below, you can familiarise yourself with the key characters in the new series and the Tokyo Vice cast, which includes another Oscar-nominated talent.
