The Vicious finale special will premiere on ITV on Friday December 16th at 9pm, it has been announced.
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 hour-long finale special charts a year in the lives of Freddie (Ian McKellen), Stuart (Derek Jacobi), and their friends Violet (Frances de la Tour), Ash (Iwan Rheon), Penelope (Marcia Warren) and Mason (Philip Voss), beginning in the Spring. Freddie and Stuart attempt to hide their recently gained inheritance, while Violet faces financial troubles after her recent divorce and Ash struggles to meet his rent. Signs of Freddie and Stuart’s expenditures soon threaten the pretense as their home is overrun with guests.
