Sky releases first look image of the second series of Sky Original comedy Bloods

26/01/2022

Sky today reveals a first look at the second series of the acclaimed comedy BLOODS. BAFTA-nominated Samson Kayo and Golden Globe-nominated Jane Horrocks return as oddball dream team Wendy and Maleek, as we follow them and their paramedic colleagues in the life-saving world of a south London emergency service. The series will air on Sky Comedy and streaming service NOW in two parts, with the first five episodes launching in March 2022.

The bigger ten-episode series has been created for Sky by BAFTA award-winning Roughcut TV (Stath Lets Flats, People Just Do Nothing, Cuckoo) in association with Sky Studios.

Series two welcomes a new source of conflict for Wendy and Maleek this time around in the form of Wendy's deeply irritating son, Spencer (Nathan Foad). Also joining the cast is Katherine Kelly (Innocent, Liar) as the ambulance station's acting counsellor and listening ear.

The show's returning cast includes Lucy Punch (Motherland) as boisterous station boss Jo, and Julian Barratt (Mighty Boosh) as grieving widower Lawrence. Adrian Scarborough (Gavin and Stacey) and Aasiya Shah (Raised By Wolves) reprise their roles as Gary and Kareshma, paramedics with diametrically opposing career outlooks, and Kevin Garry (Ted Lasso) and Sam Campbell (Melbourne International Comedy Festival Barry Award winner) as the glued-to-the-hip duo of paramedics Darrell and Darryl.

Bloods is being made for Sky by Roughcut TV and was commissioned by Zai Bennett, Sky's managing director of content, Jon Montague, Sky Studios' director of comedy and Tilusha Ghelani commissioning editor for Sky Studios. Created by Samson Kayo and Nathan Bryon the show is written by Nathan Bryon and Paul Doolan (Trollied) and produced by Debbie Pisani (Flack & Back to Life), new writers include Patricia Elcock, Tasha Dhanraj and Tom Melia. The executive producers for Roughcut are Ash Atalla (The Office, The IT Crowd) and Alex Smith (Trollied). Bloods will be distributed by NBCUniversal Global Distribution on behalf of Sky Studios.

Brand new for 2022, Sky reveals the TV that's set to get the nation talking with Sky Original Bloods Season 2, coming to Sky Comedy and NOW in March
