Peacock reveals trailer for season two of the Peacock Original HITMEN: RELOADED, starring British favorites Mel Giedroyc (“The Great British Bake Off“) and Sue Perkins (“The Great British Bake Off“) as misfits Jamie and Fran, two best friends who also happen to be contract killers.
Season two begins streaming Thursday, October 28, with all six episodes available at once on Peacock.
Best friends Jamie (Mel Giedroyc) and Fran (Sue Perkins) are trying to make their way in the world with only each other to rely on. They also just happen to kill people for a living. Fueled by their hilarious antics and frivolous bickering, each job inevitably gets derailed, leading them into bizarre misadventures, full of oddball characters and unexpected dilemmas.
After an action-packed first series, Jamie and Fran are back with a new van, new assignments, and a mysterious new client Mr V, who seems to be providing them with an abundance of jobs.
Meanwhile, our heroes reconnect with an old classmate, Kat (Katherine Parkinson, “Defending the Guilty“), at a school reunion. As the series progresses a new friendship between Kat and Jamie makes Fran increasingly jealous and suspicious. It’s bad enough worrying that someone is stealing your friend without also having to kill people for a living.
HITMEN: RELOADED also stars Jason Watkins (“The Crown“), Sian Clifford (“Fleabag“), and Asim Chaudhry (“Eaten by Lions“).
HITMEN: RELOADED is created by Joe Markham and Joe Parham. Arnold Widdowson, Siobhan Bachman, Tilusha Ghelani serve as executive producers, and Ali Bryer Carron produces. The series was directed by David Sant and written by Joe Markham, Joe Parham, Fay Rusling, Oriane Messina, and Jessica Knappett. HITMEN: RELOADED is produced by Sky Studios and Tiger Aspect Productions.

Having stumbled into a career in contract killing, misfits Fran and Jamie are not your typical killers for hire. Working out of their scruffy van, each episode follows the hapless duo as they try to carry out their latest hit, inevitably derailed by incompetence, bickering, and inane antics. As each hit goes south, our (anti)heroes are thrown into one bizarre misadventure after another, each full of oddball characters and unexpected dilemmas.
