Stephen Merchant’s BBC/Amazon Series THE OUTLAWS Set to Return for Season 2; Christopher Walken Returning — GeekTyrant

The BBC/Amazon series The Outlaws, from The Office creator Stephen Merchant, and Elgin James (Mayans M.C.), will return for a second season. The comedy thriller follows seven convicts completing community service in Bristol, U.K. The second season, which has already wrapped and is due to air next year, follows on directly from Season 1. Both seasons were filmed back to back.

The show’s star, Oscar-winner Christopher Walken (The Deer Hunter, Catch Me If You Can), is returning in the second season as character Frank Sheldon. He stars alongside Merchant, as well as Rhianne Barreto (Honour), Gamba Cole (Soon Gone: A Windrush Chronicle), Darren Boyd (Killing Eve), Clare Perkins (EastEnders), Eleanor Tomlinson (Poldark), Jessica Gunning (Back), Charles Babalola (Bancroft), Nina Wadia (Goodness Gracious Me), Tom Hanson (Brassic) and Aiyana Goodfellow (Small Axe). Julia Davis (Sally4Ever), Dolly Wells (Dracula), Ian McElhinney (Game of Thrones) and Claes Bang (Dracula) guest star.

According to the BBC, The Outlaws has been the broadcaster’s biggest comedy launch in 2021 and has been streamed on iPlayer 11 million times. Season 2 will premiere on BBC One and BBC iPlayer in the U.K. and on Amazon Prime Video in the U.S., Canada, Australia, New Zealand and Nordics.

Are you a fan of the series? I didn’t even know about it, but I’m a fan of Merchant and Walken, so I will be checking it out.
