The second season of The Wrong Mans will premiere on BBC Two on Monday December 22nd at 9pm, it has been announced.
Co-produced by US streaming service Hulu, the second season of The Wrong Mans sees Sam (Mathew Baynton) and Phil (James Corden) 4000 miles from home, with Phil looking forward to reinventing himself, while Sam pines for his old life.Distressing news from back home forces them to make a difficult choice: hide in the shadows and be forgotten forever or brave it in a world that doesn’t even know they are alive in order to get home to Bracknell in time for Christmas and reclaim their lives. First there’s just the small issue of busting out of a high-security Texan jail.
“The challenge and the excitement of coming to a second series was that we had to find the next chapter of the same story, rather than resetting. It’s more like a sequel”, said James Corden and Mathew Baynton. “In the first series Sam happened to pick up this phone and all this trouble descended on them. They are much more active this time, they are the architects of everything that befalls them.
“We pick up where we left off in series 1, but now Sam and Phil are different, they have changed as people because of everything that has happened to them, the stakes are higher and there’s even more danger now”, the duo added.
