Mad Dogs returns for a second series
Story by Tim Carson
GOOD news Mad Dogs will have a second and possibly even a third series. Sky has confirmed that after the success of the first four-part drama they have recommissioned a second series with all four cast members Max Beesley, Philip Glenister, John Simm and Marc Warren will return.
The second series will start filming this summer in Majorca and will again be in four parts. It’s due on our screens early in 2012 and all of the cast are optioned for a potential third series too.
The story picks up where series one ended with Woody, Baxter and Rick driving away from the villa as Quinn has chosen to stay and make a new life in Majorca. In the opening scenes viewers will see Woody, Baxter and Rick have a change of heart and turn back.
However, it isn’t long before they realise they’ve made the wrong move setting themselves on an even more misguided course. In the series two opener viewers will see another killing and an escape with the drug money but can they really make a getaway when there are people who want their money back?
The complicated situation the friends have found themselves in continues to spin wildly out of control and surely it can only be a matter of time before they face their day of reckoning…
Andy Harries and Suzanne Mackie return to executive produce for Leftbank Pictures with James Hawes directing scripts written again by Cris Cole.
Suzanne Mackie said: “Before we had finished the first series of Mad Dogs we felt that there was so much more to do with these characters. I have been working with Cris Cole on the scripts ever since we finished shooting series one and the ideas for series two and three are every bit as explosive and inventive as they were at the beginning.”
We can’t wait.
