If you’re a fan of crime thriller series then you might have probably binge-watched the six-episode season of The Outlaws.
Created and directed by Stephen Merchant, the series premiered on October 21, 2021, on Amazon Prime Video and has so far received a positive response from the audience and critics for its unexpected darkness, well-crafted plot, and performance by the talented actors.
With the end of the first season, fans are now looking forward to the next season. So without any further ado, let’s delve into details.
The Outlaws Season 2 Release Date: When will it Premiere?
The second season was renewed way ahead before the first season even aired.
Showrunner Stephen Merchant stated: “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.
He continued: “If we made The Outlaws sweat in series one, we’re really turning the heat up the second time round.”
Director of BBC Comedy, John Petrie also said: “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.”
Furthermore, it’s been revealed by Merchant that The Outlaws season 2 has already filmed.

The Cast of The Outlaws Season 2: Who Will Return?
It’s been confirmed that in the second season viewers will see the return of Christopher Walken as Frank, Darren Boyd as John Clare Perkins as Myrna, and Eleanor Tomlinson as Gabby playing their respective roles.
Gamba Cole and Rhianne Barreto are also set to return in the upcoming season as Christian/ Ben and Rani respectively. In addition to them, guest stars confirmed to be appearing are Julia Davis, Dolly Wells, Ian McElhinney, and Claes Bang.
The Plot of The Outlaws Season 2: Expectations
Most likely, the second season will pick up from where the first season left off.
Speaking to Digital Spy, Stephen Merchant teased the characters for the upcoming season to which he said, “we kept the same characters because they were going to be around anyway,” Merchant added. “It’s almost a direct continuation.”
He continued: “But yes, “But I feel like you could, in theory, have a whole new set of offenders in another series. You could set it anywhere else. It could be fun to have a show that never ends, with different sets of offenders, like Doctor Who.”
The second season’s official synopsis reads: “They still have time to serve out their prison sentences, but they must now deal with the consequences of their acts, which is a direct sequel to the first series’ conclusion. The criminal underworld and the local police have not finished with them, and they should be ashamed of themselves for believing that. The Outlaws must rely on one another while collaborating with odd allies in order to atone for their sins – but will they be able to save themselves without sacrificing their own souls?”
