The Outlaws season 3: release date, plot, cast and everything we know (1)

The Outlaws season 3 will be back for another criminal caper very soon!

Last May, it was revealed that the BBC and Amazon Studios comedy-thriller would be back on our screens, reuniting us with our misfit group of strangers working in a Community Payback scheme, and we now know that the series will be back at the end of May 2024.

Talking about the series when it was first renewed, The Outlaws co-creator Stephen Merchant said: "After the overwhelming response to the first two series, I’m delighted to be bringing back our lovable band of miscreants for more misadventures.

"Audiences have really taken the characters to their hearts, so I can’t wait for them to see what hot water we’ve thrown them into this time. And I’m thrilled we’ll once again be filming in my hometown of Bristol. I expect I’ll be welcomed with a ticker-tape parade. It didn’t happen on the previous series, but I put that down to Covid", Merchant added.

Here's what we know so far about The Outlaws season 3 right now...

The Outlaws season 3 plot

The Outlaws season 3 will see our gang trying to clear the name of one of their own before someone comes seeking revenge. We've had a short plot summary for the new chapter, but be warned: if you aren't caught up just yet, it will spoil what went down in The Outlaws season 2.

The synopsis reads: "With crime boss The Dean behind bars awaiting trial, The Outlaws are moving on with their lives - until one of their own returns with a deadly secret, hurling them back into mortal danger. As a murder manhunt closes in on the gang, can they prove their innocence before The Dean's case collapses and he comes looking for revenge?" You can get a better idea of what to expect from the latest caper from the trailer, which you can find below!

Production staff are very excited that The Outlaws is still around. Jon Petrie, Director of Comedy at the BBC said when the series was renewed in 2023: "We couldn’t be happier to have The Outlaws back in our lives. Stephen and the team have delivered a fantastic set of scripts for the third series, and we can’t wait to see the incredible cast bring them to life for BBC viewers to enjoy.”

Mark Linsey, President of Scripted at BBC Studios Production added: "The Outlaws series one and two have been a great success with audiences globally and we are very pleased to be working again with the talented Stephen Merchant and the team at Big Talk to bring the hilarious band of criminals back for another series with our partners at Amazon Prime Video.”
