'Bulletproof' Season 2 Preview: Meet the cast of the British cop comedy's brand new season
Starring Noel Clarke and Ashley Walters as NCA Detective Inspectors Aaron Bishop and Ronnie Pike respectively, 'Bulletproof' is a fun show that pays homage to buddy cop classics like 'Lethal Weapon' and 'Bad Boys'
The epic British action comedy 'Bulletproof' is returning to The CW with a killer Season 2. This time around, the stakes are high, the bullets and jokes fly fast, and the action promises to break new heights. Starring Noel Clarke and Ashley Walters as NCA Detective Inspectors Aaron Bishop and Ronnie Pike respectively, 'Bulletproof' is a fun show that pays homage to buddy cop classics like 'Lethal Weapon' and 'Bad Boys'. In Season 2, there are a host of new characters joining the series, and here are the ones you need to watch out for:
Vanessa Vanderpuye as Arjana Pike
Ronnie Pike’s wife Arjana Pike was played by Lashana Lynch in Season 1 but due to scheduling conflicts, the actor has been forced to step away from the project and hand the role over to Vanessa Vanderpuye. The new cast member's other credits include 2018's 'Dreaming Whilst Black' and 'Venus vs. Mars'.
Olivia Chenery as Scarlett "Scooch" Hailton
A new addition to the team at the NCA, Scooch is portrayed as an eager, determined young cop who desperately wants to prove herself as a valuable member of the squad. She is played by Olivia Chenery, who has previously worked on a number of projects including 'Queens', 'Penny Dreadful' and 'Beowulf: Return to the Shieldlands'.
Ben Tavassoli as Mikey Markides
Tavassoli is best known for his work on 'Tyrant', 'New Blood' and 'No Offence' a show that he was picked up for within days of graduating from drama school. Tavassoli plays one of the villains of the season, Mikey Markides, the youngest member of a powerful crime family. Mikey is something of a rich brat but if you think he’s just a pushover, think again. There’s an edge to the character and a sort of insanity that’ll be coming out once we get into the season.
'Bulletproof' was co-created by Walters, Clarke and Nick Love. An acclaimed English film director and writer, Love's other credits include 'The Football Factory', 'Outlaw', and 'The Sweeney'. 'Bulletproof' is executive produced by Love, Clarke, and Walters alongside Allan Niblo, Michele Buck and Judy Counihan. The show is produced by Vertigo Films and Company Pictures and had its initial broadcast on Sky One.
Here's the official synopsis for the season, "Season Two of BULLETPROOF sees Bishop and Pike dragged into their most dangerous case yet. What starts out as a routine sting morphs into something far more perilous as they are sucked into the dangerous world of undercover policing. Bishop and Pike find themselves in a tense, heart-stopping game of "cat and mouse" with a notorious and elusive crime family, whose connections spread far beyond the borders of London and the UK.
Their chase for justice will take them from the streets of London to Amsterdam and Cyprus, where they will have to risk everything — including their police badges — to succeed. 'Bulletproof' Season 2 will premiere on The CW on June 10 at 9 pm ET.
