Black Ops returning for a second series on BBC One

The hit comedy thriller promises a new adventure for Dom and Kay when it returns.

The first series of BBC One's comedy thriller Black Ops. created by Gbemisola Ikumelo and Akemnji Ndifornyen, with writing duo Joe Tucker and Lloyd Woolf, launched earlier this year drawing an audience of 2.3m for the first episode with 1.6m across the full series.

For those who missed it, the first series saw Dom and Kay, played by Gbemisola Ikumelo and Hammed Animashaun, join the Met Police as Police Community Support Officers in the hope of cleaning up their community. Instead, they found themselves unwittingly thrust into the murky world of deep cover infiltration and a powerful criminal enterprise.

In series two, across six brand new episodes, the duo are set to be thrust into a new adventure with Akemnji Ndifornyen also reprising his role as gang boss Tevin.

Speaking ahead of the comedy thriller's return, Gbemisola Ikumelo said "It’s been such a joy to see how audiences have got behind this show. So, it feels like a no-brainer to get the band back together and create more danger, adventure and laughs for everyone. This next season promises to have Dom and Kay really surprising us. Can’t wait!"

To which Akemnji Ndifornyen added "And we're back! We had so much fun doing the first one we just had to go again. Much love to our audience for watching and to the BBC for their support. I can't wait to show you what's next for Dom, Kay - and of course - Tevin. Let's go!"

And co-writers Joe Tucker and Lloyd Woolf said "We’re delighted to get the chance to send Dom and Kay on a brand-new caper."

Produced by BBC Studios Comedy Productions and Mondo Deluxe, Black Ops was commissioned by the Director of BBC Comedy, Jon Petrie who said "The first series of Black Ops had BBC viewers hooked with a perfect balance of big laughs and gripping plot. Gbemisola, Akemnji, Joe and Lloyd have created something special, and we look forward to seeing what Dom and Kay get up to next."

To which Josh Cole, Head of Comedy at BBC Studios Productions, added "We’re thrilled to be returning for more Black Ops. The show is a passion project for all involved, and with Gbemisola, Akemnji, Joe and Lloyd we have a glorious surfeit of talent at the helm. We can’t wait to join Dom and Kay on another misadventure."

Production is set to get underway in 2024 and further casting will be announced in due course.
