Noel Clarke and Ashley Walters will very soon reprise their roles as Aaron Pike and Ronnie Bishop in the Bulletproof franchise as Sky announces its commission for a fourth, 8×60’ series to air on Sky One and TV streaming service NOW TV.
After two hugely successful series of the Sky Original, and with the upcoming special third instalment Bulletproof: South Africa hitting screens on 20th January, 9pm, Sky One, audiences will again be reunited with their favourite cop duo. 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.
