The show – which has a 92 percent audience score on Rotten Tomatoes – is based on the novel of the same name, Tokyo Vicestarring journalist Jake Adelstein, who moves to Tokyo to work for a major newspaper.

Jake works closely with Detective Hiroto Katagiri and becomes the paper’s first foreign-born journalist.

The detective is part of the vice squad, which brings Jake into all kinds of dark and violent stories, including delving into the Japanese yakuza.

Now that the second season of the show has just been released, people are admitting that they are binge-watching it all.

One wrote: “Binged all of #TokyoVice in a few days, what should I do.”

While another said: “Binge watching S2 of Tokyo Vice and man I really want to go to Japan… great show by the way.”

And a third added: “Why did I sacrifice my sleep to binge watch Tokyo Vice?”

Meanwhile, a fourth commented: “I’ve been binge watching Tokyo Vice since last night.”

Some people admitted they never realized how good the show was, and another added: “Why didn’t anyone want to tell me Tokyo Vice is great? Huh?”

And another tweeted: “Tokyo Vice is so amazing man, this is the show I NEEDED.”

And a third said it was the best show they had seen ‘in a long time’.

Speaking of the first season – and the cliffhanger it ended with – Elgort shared The Hollywood Reporter: “Unlike season one, the ending of this season (two) – the last bite you get will leave you satisfied.

‘You won’t say, ‘Wait! Is that the end?’

“It doesn’t leave you with cliffhangers. It doesn’t do that TV thing where it’s just trying to prepare you for the next season. You will be satisfied at the end and have a great viewing experience.”

Many of the familiar faces from season one will also return for the second part of the show.

Also starring in this gritty drama are Ken Watanabe as Hiroto Katagiri, Samantha Porter as Rachel Keller and Show Kasamatsu as Akiro Sato.

You can watch both seasons Tokyo Vice now on BBC iPlayer.
