The Outlaws season 2 is heading to Prime Video for US fans to enjoy after already being shown on the BBC in the UK.

The first series of The Outlaws was the BBC's biggest comedy launch of 2021 and has already been streamed over 11 million times on BBC iPlayer. Like the first season, the comedy will continue to follow the seven strangers who were first thrown together whilst doing community service in Bristol.

With the second season following right on from the first season, here's everything we know about The Outlaws season 2...

The Outlaws season 2 plot

The second season picks right up where the first left off. 

*spoilers ahead*

If you need a refresher, the group are currently still completing their community service together whilst the police are still trying to figure out who killed Spider.

Although the police were convinced it was Ben (Gamba Cole) who shot him, the other Outlaws successfully convinced them that the charges wouldn't stand up in court.

The BBC has since released a synopsis for the new season. It reads: "Following on directly from the first series, The Outlaws still have time to serve on their sentences — but now they must face the fallout from their actions. 

If they thought the criminal underworld or the local police were done with them, they are sorely mistaken. The Outlaws must depend on one another while working with unlikely allies to atone for their sins — but can they save themselves without sacrificing their souls?"

Here are some images from the series...

The second season welcomes us back to "The Wild South West" of Bristol and makes it look like the stakes are even higher for our band of misfits.

The gang is confronted with the consequences of keeping the stolen money, and it looks like they'll be forced into hatching an even bigger scheme to make it back so they can pay off the drug kingpin (Claes Bang) that it belonged to... but just what will they end up doing?!
