Steve Pemberton joins Bounty Hunters

As Jack Whitehall, Rosie Perez and Charity Wakefield reprise their roles in the hit Sky One comedy.

Steve Pemberton (The League of Gentlemen, Inside No.9) will be joining the second series of Bounty Hunters as Colin McQueen, a history teacher at Eton College whose interests lie more in the ‘specialist’ end of the antiques market which had previously brought him into contact with Nigel Walker (Robert Lindsay).

Now, with the freewheeling Nigel dead, Colin wants to get his hands on that final, elusive piece of art and Nigel’s son, Barnaby, might be the man to help him.

Speaking about joining the series, Steve said "It was a thrill to be asked by Jack and Freddy to play a sinister private-school teacher with an unhealthy interest in Nazi memorabilia - frankly they had me at ‘sinister’ - and it proved a peach of a role which I devoured (apart from the stone, that would be unhealthy)."

In 2017, Bounty Hunters became Sky One’s biggest sitcom launch for six years and ended with Jack Whitehall's character Barnaby and Rosie Perez's character Nina, restraining Angel (played by Christian Ochoa) and abducting him, whilst Charity Wakefield's character Leah Walker, ended up in her own predicament as she found herself locked up in a Mexican prison.

Writers Freddy Syborn and Jack Whitehall said “We are thrilled to be given an opportunity to delve deeper into the characters we had such fun with in series one. The second series of Bounty Hunters allows us to build on the characters and also gives the audience a glimpse into other storylines...”

Bounty Hunters returns Thursday 14th March on Sky One
