First look at the second series of the acclaimed comedy BLOODS. BAFTA-nominated Samson Kayo and Golden Globe-nominated Jane Horrocks return as oddball dream team Wendy and Maleek, as we follow them and their paramedic colleagues in the life-saving world of a south London emergency service. The series will air on Sky Comedy and streaming service NOW in two parts, with the first five episodes launching in March 2022.
The bigger ten-episode series has been created for Sky by BAFTA award-winning Roughcut TV (Stath Lets Flats, People Just Do Nothing, Cuckoo) in association with Sky Studios.
