In HBO Max’s Tokyo Vice Season 2, Aoi Takeya will make his television debut. He will play Jason Oki, a Japanese-American U.S. Foreign Service agent who becomes involved in Jake Adelstein’s (Ansel Elgort) quest to learn the truth about yakuza crime boss Shinzo Tozawa (Ayumi Tanida).
The nonfiction first-person account of the Tokyo Metropolitan Police beat by American journalist Jake Adelstein was a loose inspiration for the film Tokyo Vice. The crime drama, shot on location in Tokyo, depicts Adelstein’s daily journey into Tokyo’s neon-lit underworld in the late ’90s, where nothing and no one is really what or who they seem to be.
Hiroto Katagiri, played by Ken Watanabe, is a detective in the Tokyo Police Department’s organized crime division who serves as a father figure to Jake throughout the series by assisting him in navigating the fine and frequently precarious line between the worlds of organized crime and law enforcement.
Rachel Keller, Ella Rumpf, Rinko Kikuchi, Hideaki Ito, Show Kasamatsu, Tomohisa Yamashita, Shun Sugata, Masato Hagiwara, and Kosuke Toyohara are also featured in the series.
Tokyo Vice is the brainchild of author and creator J.T. Rogers and is produced by Fifth Season (previously Endeavor Content) and Japan T.V. network Wowow. Together with Michael Mann, Rogers serves as the series executive producer.
Adelstein, Elgort, Watanabe, Alan Poul, Kayo Washio, John Lesher, Emily Gerson Saines, and Brad Kane are more E.P.s. Fifth Season is also in charge of the show’s international distribution.

Release Date of Tokyo Vice Season 2
Since the series’ production status has not yet determined the precise timing and schedule needed to finish it on time, as well as how the post-production aspects will determine the estimated time frame required by the creators to issue the expected release date for the upcoming Season, Tokyo Vice Season 2 has not yet been given an exact release date.
If we had to venture a prediction, we’d say the series will debut in 2019, most likely sometime in early to mid-2023. Similar to the first season, sometime in or around April. Yoshino, the final episode of Season 1, was made available on April 28, 2022. The network was renewed much more quickly than most people anticipated.
This indicates that the show can complete its filming on time and release fresh episodes reasonably soon. As they are eager to see what happens in Jake Adelstein’s life moving forward, many viewers are hoping there won’t be any significant production delays in the future.
Also expressing his opinions was Executive Producer Alan Poul, who said, “The phenomenal viewer response in both the U.S. and Japan has been so gratifying. Our committed cast and crew have worked incredibly hard to create the show and maintain its authenticity, and we’re thrilled to be able to continue the story.
Tokyo Vice Season 2 Plot
Jake Adelstein, an American journalist who moved to Tokyo in 1999, must pass a written Japanese exam to be considered for a position on the staff of a well-known Japanese newspaper, according to the show’s concept.
He becomes their first foreign-born journalist and works his way up from the bottom. He begins to delve into the seedy and dangerous world of the Japanese yakuza after being taken under the wing of a seasoned detective in the vice squad.
Based on this established premise, Tokyo Vice Season 2 is anticipated to develop further the storylines from Season 1’s concluding episode, which revealed that “While Samantha risks everything for Polina’s safe return, Sato is compelled to mix business and pleasure; as Katagiri develops a plan to take down Tozawa finally, Jake is confronted by the crime boss’s men.”
The cast of Tokyo Vice Season 2
The show’s main cast from Season 1 is anticipated to return to continue the story and the characters’ arcs. Meanwhile, we can expect that the show’s main form and a few recurring characters will return in the upcoming Season.
The main cast of the series includes the following:
- Ansel Elgort as Jake Adelstein, an American journalist from Missouri who moves to Tokyo
