Bulletproof South Africa: Start date, cast and how to watch

FANS of Bulletproof have been waiting patiently to hear word of an upcoming season.

And it's good news – cop buddies Pike and Bishop, played by Noel Clarke and Ashley Walters will be returning to our screens with a spin-off special in January.

When does Bulletproof: South Africa start?

Cop duo Bishop and Pike will be returning to our screens for a three-part special on Wednesday 20 January 2021.

Bulletproof: South Africa will air on Sky One – keep your eyes on this page for an exact time.

The show will also be available on NOW TV.

Who is in the cast?

Noel Clarke and Ashley Walters are reprising their roles as cop pals, Pike and Bishop for the third instalment of the action-packed series.

The cast for the special has not yet been announced – but we can assume there might be a slight shake up, considering the two cops won't be surrounded by London regulars.

In January it was revealed that South African actor, producer and filmmaker Thapelo Mokoena would be appearing in the new special.

Mokoena confirmed the exciting news on his Instagram page: “The cats out the bag. It’s our time! I am incredibly grateful & proud to be part of this amazing UK series special.”

He added: I’m forever grateful for this incredible journey in the Arts. Mission Take Africa to the World is well in progress…The BAD BOYS of the UK are in South Africa!"

What will happen in the series?

The new series will see Bishop and Pike step away from the streets of London and head to Cape Town, South Africa for a holiday.

After years of investigating some seriously dangerous crimes, the pair just want a bit of rest and relaxation – but things don’t quite go to plan.

The synopsis reads: "While trying to relax after a tough year, Bishop, Pike and his family soon find themselves caught up in the frightening kidnap of a young girl.

"Having befriended the young girl’s parents earlier that day, Bishop and Pike decide it’s their duty to use their expertise to help the couple win their daughter back.

"The kidnappers demand an unreasonable reward for the safe return of the girl, but have no idea who they’re now up against."

Sky Executive Producer Paul Gilbert said: “We’re really excited to see TV’s favourite cop duo back in action, but transported from the mean streets of London to one of the most beautiful coastlines on the planet.

"Played brilliantly by Noel and Ashley, Bishop and Pike will offer a New Year thrill ride to die-hard fans of the show and new viewers alike, as they navigate their way through an unfamiliar world to seek justice in their inimitable style.”

Allan Niblo, co-founder of Vertigo Films, added: “I’m thrilled to have Bishop and Pike burst onto our TV screens with a ray of sunshine to brighten up any dull January.

"Expect carnage, mayhem and comradery as they take on formidable new enemies.”
