BritBox has confirmed its biting puppet satire Spitting Image is going to be back, only days after the show launching on the British streaming platform. The series has been a resounding success for the streaming service after Spitting Image launched over the weekend. Express.co.uk has everything Spitting Image fans need to know about the second series.
When will Spitting Image season 2 be released?
Season two will be out at some point in autumn 2021 but a firm date has yet to be confirmed by BritxBox.
ITV executive Reemah Sakaan said of the renewal: “The fantastic response to Spitting Image just goes to show how much the world needs public service satire.
“Not only can subscribers look forward to another nine weeks of anarchy but also now another series in 2021.”
The first series comprises of 10 episodes, which are dropped weekly on BritBox and the second outing is expected to follow suit with a similar number of instalments.
Who is in the cast of Spitting Image season 2?
The show has a cast of voice actors, who bring the puppets to life with their hilarious impression and these performers are expected to return.
Among the stars expected to be coming back is legendary voice artists Billy West and John DiMaggio both of Futurama fame.
Other include The Impressions Show’s Debra Stephenson and Debra Wilson from Family Guy as well as actors Guz Khan best known for Man Like Mobeen, Game of Thrones and Luther’s Indira Varma, The Imitation Game actress Jess Robinson, Lewis MacLeod from Dead Ringers, Killing Eve’s Lobo Chan (Killing Eve).
Further cast members include Luke Kempner from The Imitation Game, Matt Forde of Unspun fame who will be doing his best Donald Trump impression again, and Phil LaMarr from Pulp Fiction.
Season two is likely to see more cast members as the list of characters also grows with new figures becoming the object of ridicule.
What will happen in Spitting Image season 2?
There will be more of the same: satirical sketched cutting close to the bone of well-known figures across the spectrum from celebrity to politics and royalty.
No one will escape the cutting gaze and wit of Spitting Image unscathed.
Season two will remain topical with scripts written as close to the episodes as possible, along with new puppets being fashioned.
Spitting Image has an impressive roster of writers as well, who have put together the hilarious sketches.
Among the writing team is comedians Al Murray, Phil Wang and Richard Herring, along with Gemma Arrowsmith and Brona C. Titley from The Tracey Ullman Show.
Writers from The Windsors Bert Tyler-Moore and George Jeffrie and The Simpsons’ scribes Bill Odenkirk, Patric Verrone and David X. Cohen are involved.
Further writers include Charlie Brooker’s Screenwipe duo Jason Hazeley and Nico Tatarowicz, Karl Minns from Russell Howard’s Good News, Keisha Zollar of Astronomy Club, Laura Major from Famalam, Matt Forde, Sophie Duker of Frankie Boyle’s New World Order fame and Travis Jay who has worked on Dave Chapelle and Friends.
Much like the cast, the team of writers is also expected to be expanding for the new seiries.
Is there a trailer for Spitting Image season 2?
Sadly, as the show has only just been announced, it’s highly unlikely there will be a trailer as no new footage has been shot.
A trailer for season two is going to be coming out a lot closer to the time given the show is made close to transmission to remain relevant.
Express.co.uk will update this article with any teasers or trailers when they do drop.
