The BBC has renewed Steven Knight’s wartime drama ‘SAS Rogue Heroes’ for second season. The series, based on the book by Ben Macintyre, tells the story of the formation of the SAS during the Second World War.
Season one followed David Stirling (Connor Swindells), Jock Lewes (Alfie Allen) and Paddy Mayne (Jack O’Connell) as they formed the Special Air Service in North Africa and invented a new form of warfare. Dominic West, Sofia Boutella, Tom Glynn-Carney and Theo Barklem-Biggs co-starred.
After the roaring success of Rogue Heroes I’m delighted to be embarking on the next chapter of the story. Series two will take the SAS into mainland Europe and will take our heroes to the limits of their endurance.Steven Knight
The first season was in the UK top five of drama launches of the year.
