The Outlaws pulled many shenanigans over the course of the first two seasons and they’ll soon be coming back for more. Prime Video and BBC One announced they’ll be bringing back Stephen Merchant’s hit crime comedy series back for its third season.

The Outlaws centers on a group of seven strangers whose lives become intertwined after they’re forced to complete a community service together. Their luck turns once they stumble upon a bag full of money, but they quickly regret taking it.

In addition to Merchant, who co-created the series alongside Elgin James, The Outlaws also stars Christopher Walken, Rhianne Barreto, Darren Boyd, Gamba Cole, Jessica Gunning, Clare Perkins, Eleanor Tomlinson, and Charles Babalola.

Merchant said he’s delighted to be bringing back the lovable band of miscreants for more misadventures after the overwhelming response to the first two seasons.

“Audiences have really taken the characters to their hearts, so I can’t wait for them to see what hot water we’ve thrown them into this time. And I’m thrilled we’ll once again be filming in my hometown of Bristol. I expect I’ll be welcomed with a ticker-tape parade,” said Merchant in a statement.

The Outlaws originally premiered in 2021, and the first two seasons were filmed back-to-back in Bristol.
