‘SAS Rogue Heroes’ Season 2 release date: When’s it back?

A second season of SAS Rogue Heroes has been confirmed!

The action-packed series has been a smash hit for the BBC this autumn, with nearly 10 million viewers watching the first episode.

SAS Rogue Heroes has also gone down well in the US, where it debuted on EPIX last month.

So it was no huge surprise to hear that the show has been renewed for more new episodes.

Watch the Season 1 trailer here:

The official announcement was made after Season 1’s finale aired on BBC One in the UK.

Episode 6 ended with a freeze-frame on Jack O’Connell’s character Paddy Mayne, who’s now in charge of our Rogue Heroes, with a ‘TO BE CONTINUED’ end caption specially inserted for broadcast.

Inspired by the origins of the world’s greatest Special Forces unit, the World War II drama attracted mostly positive reviews when it premiered in October.

The BBC has revealed that the second season of SAS Rogue Heroes is set to start shooting in 2023.

However, fans could be in for a long wait!

Based on Ben Macintyre’s bookSAS Rogue Heroes is written by Peaky Blinders creator Steven Knight.

Unfortunately, the award-winning screenwriter has a very busy slate of upcoming projects!

Having wrapped up its final season earlier this year, the much-anticipated Peaky Blinders movie begins filming in early 2023.

He’s then got new Birmingham-based music drama This Town about to start production, a Great Expectations mini-series airing this winter, an adaptation of All the Light We Cannot See for Netflix, and a new World War II drama with Ridley Scott in the pipeline.

Oh, and the long-awaited second season of Taboo is still hopefully happening too!

So when are we going to see Season 2?

Well, this isn’t a quick show to make…

SAS Rogue Heroes was first commissioned way back in 2019.

The first season’s shoot then began in the UK and Morocco in March 2021, but the show didn’t arrive on our screens for another 18 months.

Even if filming kicks off in the next quarter, it seems highly unlikely that the new episodes will be ready to premiere in 2023.

More likely is a release date in the spring or summer of 2024.

Season 2 will air on BBC One and BBC iPlayer in the UK, and on EPIX in the US.

SAS Rogue Heroes is available to watch on EPIX.
