Noel Clarke and Ashley Walters are to reprise their roles as Aaron Pike and Ronnie Bishop in a fourth runout of Vertigo Films’ Bulletproof franchise as Sky announces a further commission.

The 8×60’ series order for Sky One and NOW TV comes on the eve of the TX of series three, Bulletproof: South Africa, that hits the screen on January 20th.

In the fourth series, Bishop and Pike are set to be implicated in a grisly murder, “leaving their jobs, lives and families hanging in the balance. The pair must use every ounce of skill and tenacity to bring down the most untouchable villain they’ve ever faced.”

Shooting is scheduled for later this year in and around London.

Noel Clarke said:“We are ecstatic that Bulletproof has been commissioned for yet another season. It is a testament to the hard-working cast, crew, and everyone behind the scenes making it all happen. We work hard to bring you something entertaining and heartfelt and we hope you enjoy it when it returns!”

Ashley Walters said: “I am so pleased we can continue the journey of Bishop and Pike. This show has stood the test of time because of the heart we put into it. We really appreciate the support we have had from all that have watched. See you again soon.”

Allan Niblo, co-founder of Vertigo Films, said: “Bulletproof is a show that pushes the boundaries, and this series will be bigger, bolder and more rebellious than ever, giving viewers something they haven’t seen before. Bulletproof has a unique combination of action and humour, and with Noel and Ashley, a partnership like no other. We can’t wait to share their journey with audiences once again.”

Paul Gilbert, Executive Producer at Sky Studios, said: “This brand-new action-packed adventure for Bishop and Pike will feel truly epic and put their relationship to the ultimate test. We can promise something spectacular and truly entertaining, reflecting Sky’s commitment to offering our viewers world-class drama they cannot find anywhere else.”

The show was commissioned by Zai Bennett, Managing Director of Content at Sky and Paul Gilbert, Executive Producer at Sky Studios Drama. For Vertigo it is Executive Produced by Allan Niblo, co-founder of Vertigo Films. NBCUniversal Global Distribution handle international sales of the series.
