The second season of ITV’s Ian McKellen and Derek Jabobi fronted comedy series Vicious will premiere on Monday June 1st at 9pm, it has been announced.
Penned by Will & Grace scribe Gary Janetti, Vicious follows ageing partners Freddie and Stuart. These two men have lived together in a small Covent Garden flat for nearly 50 years. Freddie was a budding actor and Stuart a barman when they first met but their careers are now pretty much over and their lives now consist of reading books, walking their dog and bickering. The comedy series is produced by Brown Eyed Boy in association with Kudos Film & TV and stars Ian McKellen, Derek Jacobi, Frances de la Tour, Iwan Rheon, Marcia Warren and Phillip Voss.
In the show’s six episode second season the loving (and bickering) couple of over 50 years soon discover it’s all change amongst their close circle of friends. Violet (Frances de la Tour) has married a mystery man who now seems to have gone AWOL. Ash (Iwan Rheon) is all loved up with new girlfriend Jess (Georgia King). And ditzy Penelope (Marcia Warren) and no nonsense Mason (Philip Voss) continue to be baffled by everyone around them.
