The Outlaws is a comic crime thriller by Stephen Merchant. It was previously called The Offender and was first announced in early 2020. BBC described it as a part crime thriller and part-time character study, with humor and heart.
Stephen Merchant said that he was inspired to create the series by his parents’ work as community service supervisors. If you are a lover of comic series, this is something that you should watch.
As per the BBC, “The Outlaws” was the broadcaster’s greatest comedy debut in 2021 and has been viewed 11 million times on BBC iPlayer.
Let’s find out more about this series and whether there will be a sequel in the coming years.
Will there be a Season 3 of The Outlaws?
The third season of The Outlaws is being developed, according to Stephen Merchant. Although the BBC hasn’t formally confirmed more episodes, the writer talked about other plotlines in his interview.
Has The Outlaws Been Renewed For Third Season?
This series hasn’t been renewed for a third season. This shouldn’t come as a shocker given the brilliant minds behind it, also responsible for The Office UK and Extras. Season 2 of The Outlaws will premiere on 5th June on BBC One and BBC iPlayer.
On August 5, The Outlaws season 2 will be available on Prime Video, allowing US audiences to enjoy the show after it has already premiered in the UK.

The first episode aired on Monday 25th October on BBC1 and BBC iPlayer. It later premiered on Amazon Video in different parts of the world, such as Canada, Australia, the US, and New Zealand. The season finale is set to air on Monday, 29th November 2021, as we do not anticipate a break in the show’s airing patterns.
The Outlaws Season 1 Plot: What we have seen in the series so far?
The first season features seven best friends who are forced to become fast friends and work alongside one another to complete their community service in Southern England.
What makes the story even more exciting is the threat of gang crime in the city. It is a story about unlikely people forced to work together for a greater course.
The Outlaws Season 3 Release Date: When will it air?
This is great news as fans won’t have to wait for a longer duration after the first season’s finale airing.
It is also worth noting that the first season’s production had to halt because of the pandemic, which ravaged different industries bringing lots of things to a standstill.
Stephen Merchant, the producer, confirmed at the time that Covid-19 made them shut down. However, now that lot of things are back to normal, we shouldn’t expect future interruptions.
The Outlaws will return for a second season, which has already been confirmed. In reality, months before the show premiered in January 2021, it was reported that a second season had been commissioned.
The BBC has not yet revealed when The Outlaws Season 2 will release, but we do know that the next season has already been filmed, with production wrapping up in October 2021.
“As they used to say at the end of James Bond films, don’t worry — The Outlaws will return!” creator and star Stephen Merchant stated in a video he published on Twitter. There is also a season two in the works, so you’ll be responsible for repeating these characters’ adventures as they continue in the next season, whenever that is on TV, who knows.”
When should fans expect the third season of this series? Since the renewal was earlier this year, we expect a third season to come out at the end of 2022 on BBC One.
The Outlaws Season 3 Cast: Who will be coming back?

These are Christopher Walken (Severance), who featured in Pulp Fiction, playing Frank; Stephen Merchant playing Greg, a lonely lawyer struggling with divorce, scary men, and workplace bullying; Darren Boyd from Killing Eve as John, a businessman and community pillar labeled as a common criminal; Clare Perkins from EastEnders as Myrna, an aging activist, and campaigner; Eleanor Tomlinson from Poldark as Gabby, an aristocrat; Rhianne Barreto from Honour as Rani, a gifted rebellious student, and Gamba Cole from Soon Gone: A Windrush Chronicle who plays Christian, a young man struggling to raise his kid sister.
