The fifth season of Plebs will premiere on ITV2 on Monday September 30th at 10pm with a double-bill, it has been announced
Created by Sam Leifer and Tom Basden, Plebs is set in Ancient Rome and follows three under achievers, all of whom are on a desperate quest to live the ‘when in Rome’ mantra to the full in the empire’s most exciting city.

Teddy Leifer is the series producer, while Sam Leifer is directing. Caroline Leddy is the executive producer.
