New Series Of Bulletproof Is Coming To Sky In January 2021

New Series Of Bulletproof Is Coming To Sky In January 2021

Next year will mark the return of cop buddies Aaron Bishop (Noel Clarke) and Ronnie Pike Jr. (Ashley Walters) as the new batch of episodes of Bulletproof will take the pair on a journey to South Africa.

Dubbed Bulletproof: South Africa, the three part special follows Aaron and Ronnie as they take a much needed holiday from their London day-jobs and travel to Cape Town, South Africa.

The vacation does not go smoothly. While trying to relax after a tough year, Bishop, Pike and his family soon find themselves caught up in the frightening kidnap of a young girl. Having befriended the young girl's parents earlier that day, Bishop and Pike decide it's their duty to use their expertise to help the couple win their daughter back.

The kidnappers demand an unreasonable reward for the safe return of the girl, but have no idea who they are now up against.

The crime comedy drama has been a huge success for Sky. Taking inspiration from buddy-cop film franchises like Lethal Weapon and Bad Boys, the show's protagonists are childhood friends from very different backgrounds.

Ronnie is from a middle-class family with a history in the police. His father works as the Director-General of the National Crime Agency. Aaron, however, spent his childhood in foster homes and on the streets.

Paul Gilbert, Executive Producer for Sky, said: "We're really excited to see TV's favourite cop duo back in action, but transported from the mean streets of London to one of the most beautiful coastlines on the planet.

"Played brilliantly by Noel and Ashley, Bishop and Pike will offer a New Year thrill ride to die-hard fans of the show and new viewers alike, as they navigate their way through an unfamiliar world to seek justice in their inimitable style."

Bulletproof: South Africa is to air on Sky One on Wednesday 20 January 2021 and will also be available on streaming service and NOW TV.
