“Dear, God, there walks a dead man,” a voiceover says as a cloaked Tom Hardy bursts into a darkened church in the new trailer for the much-anticipated FX series “Taboo.”

Hardy plays a rogue adventurer in the eight-episode series, which is set in 1814 and follows James Keziah Delaney, a man who has been to the ends of the earth and comes back irrevocably changed.

Long believed to be dead, he returns home to London from Africa to inherit what is left of his father’s shipping empire and rebuild a life for himself. But enemies are lurking in every dark corner. James must navigate increasingly complex situations in order to escape with his life.

The series was created by Hardy, Steven Knight, and the actor’s father, Chips Hardy. Tom Hardy and Ridley Scott executive produce, along with Knight, Dean Baker, Kate Crowe and Carlo Dusi.

“Taboo” premieres Jan. 7 on FX.
