The Outlaws Season 2 is becoming a huge buzz among fans as they wonder whether or not the show will get another season. The new and amazing comedy shows produced by BBC and Amazon Prime has charmed international and United Kingdom audiences alike with the band of unlikely misfits and criminals trying to do good, so it’s no wonder the demand for The Outlaws Season 2 are high.
But will the show return? Fret not! We will tell you everything you need to know about The Outlaws Season 2.
Will there be The Outlaws Season 2?
Yes! Amazon and BBC announced the renewal and everyone involved in the show cannot wait to start the production for The Outlaws Season 2
Stephen Merchant says: “I am overwhelmed by the wonderful response to The Outlaws. Audiences have fallen in love with the characters as much as I have and my Twitter feed is inundated with people asking for updates on series two, so I’m delighted to confirm the entire gang will return for more adventures. If we made The Outlaws sweat in Series One, we’re really turning the heat up second time round.”
Jon Petrie, Director of BBC Comedy, says: “The Outlaws has entertained BBC viewers across the nation this autumn and we are thrilled to say the series is the BBC’s biggest comedy launch this year. We can’t wait for fans to see what Stephen has in store for this second series as our Outlaws come face to face with the consequences of their actions.”
Chris Mansolillo, director and head of content licensing in the U.S. for Prime Video, says: “Stephen and Elgin’s unlikely band of Outlaws have clearly connected with audiences in the UK, through their compelling storylines, and hilarious and heartfelt performances. We can’t wait to introduce The Outlaws to our Prime Video members next year.”
Currently, there is no information when The Outlaws Season 2 will be released, as production for the show has not started yet. But because of the very fast paced nature of the first season production, we can expect The Outlaws Season 2 to air on BBC and Amazon Prime Video on mid 2022.
Who will be in The Outlaws Season 2?
It has been confirmed that we will see the return of the core cast in The Outlaws Season 2, our loveable seven strangers forced to complete community service sentences together. So Stephen Merchant (Greg), Christopher Walken (Frank), Rhianne Barreto (Rani), Gamba Cole (Christian/Ben), Darren Boyd (John), Clare Perkins (Myrna) and Eleanor Tomlinson (Lady Gabby), all will be returning the show.
Also returning will be Jessica Gunnin, who plays their supervisor Diane, plus Charles Babalola (Malaki), Nina Wadia (Shanthi), Ian McElhinney (John Snr.), Tom Hanson (Spencer), Dolly Wells (Margaret), and Aiyana Goodfellow (Esme). We might also see recurring guest characters such as Julia Davis (Sally4Ever), Dolly Wells (Dracula) and Claes Bang (Dracula).being promoted as secondary cast and new guests will be brought to the show.
What’s the Story for The Outlaws Season 2?
An official synopsis for The Outalws Season 2 has been released by the BBC so we have some idea on where the show will go
“Following on directly from the first series, The Outlaws still have time to serve on their sentences – but now they must face the fallout from their actions. If they thought the criminal underworld or the local police were done with them, they are sorely mistaken. The Outlaws must depend on one another while working with unlikely allies to atone for their sins – but can they save themselves without sacrificing their souls?”
The Outlaws Season 2 will pick up from where the dramatic season one finale left off, with the group continuing their community service as the police still trying to get to the bottom of who shot gang leader Spider.
While the police seemed to believe that it was Ben (Gamba Cole) who shot Spider, the rest of the community service group managed to convince them that any charges would not stand up in court as there were no fingerprints on the gun and the only people who witnessed it were Ben’s heartbroken lover who is extremely racist.
In any case, the group might still have to deal with the ramifications of the death of Spider while trying their best to finish their community sentence, so it will be interesting to see where the group dynamics go from here.
