TV - SAS Rogue Heroes

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

Press Release

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. 

Based on Ben Macintyre’s best-selling book of the same name, 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. Filming on series two will take place in 2023.

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 added, “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.”

SAS Rogue Heroes series one was written and executive produced by Steven Knight, directed by Tom Shankland, and produced by Stephen Smallwood. Executive producers for Kudos were Karen Wilson, Martin Haines and Emma Kingsman-Lloyd, with Tommy Bulfin as executive producer for the BBC.
