Tokyo Vice is one of the shows that will be back for a new season in 2023, according to a preview video for HBO and HBO Max’s lineup for that year.

What Will Happen in Tokyo Vice Season 2?
The show Tokyo Vice is based on Jake Adelstein’s book about his time in 1990s Tokyo covering the police beat and the Yakuza. Some people have asked how much of Adelstein’s book is based on real events, but we’ll talk about that another time.
In the first season, Jake got a job on the police beat at a well-known Tokyo newspaper. After some trouble at first, he gets close to a number of people who help him learn more about the Yakuza. This includes his editor, Eimi, a police detective, Katagiri, a member of the Yakuza, Sato, and Samantha, an American hostess.
Jake looks into a series of what seem to be suicides and finds surprising links to the criminal underworld. But the more he gets close, the worse things get. Sam tries to make money so she can start her own club, but her connections to the Yakuza and her past make things complicated. She is also worried about her friend Polina, who goes missing and Jake finds out was killed.
Then there is Sato, who is slowly moving up in the Yakuza, but he seems to be torn about what he wants to do with his life. Sato is attacked, stabbed, and left for dead at the end of season 1, but we don’t know if he lives or dies. Was this attack done by a rival Yakuza family, or was it done from the inside because Sato had started to question his bosses?
We didn’t see it anywhere else, but it didn’t look good for the dirty cop Jin Miyamoto, who was taken far away by his former mafia bosses just when he seemed to be turning a corner. No official plot summary for season 2 of Tokyo Vice has been released, but J.T. Rogers said this about the next season:
“Writing and then making the first season of Tokyo Vice with this remarkable group of artists was a matchless experience. So 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!”
This is only the beginning. We’ll see you again soon for Season Two of #TOKYOVICE. pic.twitter.com/0eJibY9SEr
