BBC Drama SAS Rogue Heroes To Return For A Second Series

Steven Knight’s critically-acclaimed BBC drama SAS Rogue Heroes will return for a second series.

As series one came to a close on BBC One, its recommission was announced via a specially inserted 'TO BE CONTINUED' end caption, as the screen froze on Paddy Mayne (Jack O’Connell) - now in charge of our Rogue Heroes - and the credits rolled. Filming on series two of SAS Rogue Heroes, made for the BBC by Kudos (a Banijay UK company), will take place in 2023.

Based on Ben Macintyre's best-selling book of the same name, SAS Rogue Heroes on the BBC has been a huge hit with audiences and critics alike, with episode one attracting 9.4 million viewers (28-day all screens figure). This makes SAS Rogue Heroes the BBC’s third biggest drama launch of the year so far. The series has been available in full as a box set on BBC iPlayer since launch.

Series one followed David Stirling (Connor Swindells), Jock Lewes (Alfie Allen) and Paddy Mayne (Jack O’Connell) in a dramatised account of how the SAS was formed in the darkest days of World War Two, with fellow cast members including Dominic West, Sofia Boutella, Tom Glynn-Carney and Theo Barklem-Biggs.

The second series will show viewers what comes next for the SAS, following the dramatic turn of events in series one’s final episode. Further details will be announced in due course.

Steven Knight, SAS Rogue Heroes' creator, writer, and executive producer, said: "After the roaring success of Rogue Heroes I’m delighted to be embarking on the next chapter of the story. Series two will take the SAS into mainland Europe and will take our heroes to the limits of their endurance."

Karen Wilson, executive producer and Joint Managing Director of Kudos said: "We've been blown away by the reaction to the first series and are so pleased to be bringing our SAS Rogue Heroes back for more. Steven’s incredible storytelling has captivated audiences and there is so much more story to tell - I can't wait for audiences to see what’s in store."
