Sony Crackle is bringing back Rupert Grint and 'Snatch' for a second season
Sony Crackle announced on Monday that the second season of its scripted original drama, 'Snatch,' starring Rupert Grint is coming back to screens this September.
Ronald 'Ron' Weasley is coming back to conquer the small screen, yet again. Sony Crackle announced on Monday that the second season of its scripted original drama, 'Snatch,' starring Rupert Grint is coming back to screens on September 13. The show has been ordered for a ten episodes run and will take fans to Spain’s Costa del Sol as they follow the Hill Gang as they desperately fight to save their fortune and their lives.
The series is loosely based on the 2000 film of the same name, inspired by a real-life heist in London. When a group of hustlers, in their 20s, discover stolen gold bullion, they are shoved into the world of organized crime. New to the scene, the youngsters must find their way in the dark underbelly of London's crime world that has everyone, from cops to mobsters, waiting to pounce for prey.
This season will pick up where the last one left off. Not long after settling in the fictional coastal town of San Toledo, we see the young scammers in the middle of a tussle with the local kingpin. Just survival will take every ounce of skill they have acquired over the years. Can they outsmart their enemies and take over the town for their own? If you know the Hills, you would know that this gang is savvy and crazy enough to actually pull it off!
Grint is making his return as the utterly posh, Charlie Cavendish-Scott. He's far away from his 'Harry Potter' persona in this series, although he smokes like a chimney and has an obsession for ecstasy, not to mention he is also a criminal aristocrat. Grint, like every other role he has taken up after the 'Harry Potter' franchise, really commits to the role. Aside from the fact that he looks at least two decades older than he is, Grint also brings the character of Charlie to life.
Aside from the fact that Charlie too, like Ron, makes some impulsive decisions on the show, it would be safe to say that Grint has definitely emerged from the shadows of being a Weasley. We cannot wait to see how he takes the role forward in the upcoming season.
The cast also features Luke Pasqualino ('Skins,' 'The Borgias') as Albert Hill, Lucien Laviscount ('Scream Queens', ) as Billy Ayres, Phoebe Dynevor ('The Village,' 'Dickensian') as Lotti Mott, Juliet Aubrey ('The Infiltrator,' 'Primeval') as Lily Hill, Tamer Hassan ('House Red') as Hate 'Em and Dougray Scott ('Mission Impossible II,' 'Desperate Housewives,' 'My Week With Marilyn') as Vic Hill. The new additions to the series this season are Spanish actors Úrsula Corberó ('Money Heist'), Hovik Keuchkerian ('Assassin’s Creed,' 'The Night Manager') and Tristan Ulloa ('Farina: Snow on the Atlantic').
Alex De Rakoff serves as writer, showrunner and executive producer along with Aaron Ginsburg, William Green and Rupert Grint. The upcoming season is directed by Kevin Connolly, Tom Dey, and Luis Prieto.
