Steve Pemberton Joins Jack Whitehall & Rosie Perez In Sky One’s ‘Bounty Hunters’ Season 2 Which Returns March 2019
Sky One has announced ‘The League of Gentlemen’s Steve Pemberton has joined the all-star cast in the 2nd Season of Sky One’s ‘Bounty Hunters‘, and the broadcaster has released a new little teaser trailer for the show which returns this March.
Series 2 of the Sky One comedy thriller, once again, comes from writing team Jack Whitehall and Freddy Syborn (‘Bad Education’) and will see Barnaby Walker (Whitehall) and Nina Morales (Rosie Perez) return with a bang ready for more adventures and scrapes in the second instalment of the hit show. Pemberton joins the cast as Colin McQueen, a history teacher at Eton College whose interests lie more in the ‘specialist’ end of the antiques market which had previously brought him into contact with Nigel Walker (Robert Lindsay). Now, with the freewheeling Nigel dead, Colin wants to get his hands on that final, elusive piece of art and Nigel’s son, Barnaby, might be the man to help him.
“It was a thrill to be asked by Jack and Freddy to play a sinister private-school teacher with an unhealthy interest in Nazi memorabilia,” commented Pemberton. “Frankly they had me at ‘sinister’ – and it proved a peach of a role which I devoured (apart from the stone, that would be unhealthy).”
The first series, which launched in 2017 to an audience of 1.38 million, became Sky One’s biggest sitcom launch for six years. Season 1, which is currently available to watch On Demand on Sky and NOW TV, ended with Barnaby (Jack Whitehall) and Nina (Rosie Perez) restraining Angel (Christian Ochoa) and abducting him, whilst Leah Walker (Charity Wakefield), ended up in her own predicament as she found herself locked up in a Mexican prison.
“We are thrilled to be given an opportunity to delve deeper into the characters we had such fun with in series one,” add Syborn and Whitehall. “The second series of Bounty Hunters allows us to build on the characters and also gives the audience a glimpse into other storylines.”
