Crime drama series based on American journalist Jake Adelstein's non-fiction first-hand account of the Tokyo Metropolitan Police beat acquired by the BBC.

In a statement, creatives said: "Over the last five years, Max has made sure we got to tell our story. They have supported us through thick and thin. Not only did they give us these two seasons, they said yes when we asked to end season one with a series of cliffhangers, and they said yes when we asked for two extra episodes so we could land the plane in the way J.T. had always envisioned."

"We’re grateful not only to Max but to our partners Fifth Season, who sold the show around the world and made it a global success story. They were in the trenches with us always, guaranteeing that we could make the show we wanted to make...

"The response from both the press and from fans, in particular to season two, has been overwhelming. It’s been thrilling to find out how deeply viewers have engaged with our characters and to hear how they are clamouring for more. We know there is more story to tell. Of course, we’ll see what the future holds, but we are indeed grateful to have been able to share this story on Max until now."

Tokyo Vice is available on BBC iPlayer.
