‘The Lazarus Project’: Sky Renews Time Bending Action Drama For Season 2

The Lazarus Project will be returning for more time-looping craziness as Sky announces the drama has been renewed for Season 2.

‘The Lazarus Project’ follows George (Paapa Essiedu – ‘Gangs of London’) who wakes up one day and finds himself reliving a day from months ago, he thinks he’s lost his mind. All of his recent milestones have been undone, including his success at work and his marriage to the love of his life Sarah (Charly Clive – ‘Pure’). Worst of all, he seems to be the only one who has noticed what’s happened.

That is until he meets Archie (Anjli Mohindra – ‘Vigil’, ‘Bodyguard’), who recruits George for the Lazarus Project – a secret organisation that has harnessed the ability to turn back time every time the world is at threat of extinction. Like George, those who work at Lazarus are the few people on earth with the ability to remember the events that are undone when time goes back. Alongside colleagues Archie, standoffish Shiv (Rudi Dharmalingam – ‘Wakefield’, ‘The Split’), and their steely leader Wes (Caroline Quentin – ‘Dickensian’, ‘Bridgerton’) George works to prevent global catastrophe – including trying to track down the formidable Rebrov (Tom Burke – ‘Strike’, ‘War and Peace’), a wanted criminal intent on detonating a nuclear warhead and destroying the world.

Then a freak accident harms someone close to George. Lazarus won’t let him turn back time to undo it – unless there is the threat of global extinction. Now George must choose to stay loyal or go rogue, as he is faced with the question: if you had the power to rewrite your past, what would you sacrifice to do it…?

“We are thrilled at the success of series one and at Sky’s recommission,” commented creator Joe Barton. “We have bold and ambitious plans for series two which will reunite all our characters in more thrilling and mind-bending adventures.”

‘The Lazarus Project’ season one was directed by Marco Kreuzpaintner (‘Beat’) and was commissioned by Gabriel Silver, Director of Commissioning for Drama at Sky Studios for Zai Bennett, Managing Director of Content at Sky UK. The series is executive produced by Joe Barton, Paul Gilbert for Sky Studios, and Johnny Capps and Julian Murphy for Urban Myth Films. Urban Myth Films is producing in association with Sky Studios. Adam Knopf was the producer.

The Lazarus Project‘ Season 1 can be found on Sky On Demand and the NOW streaming service.
