The series stars Daniel Mays (White Lines), Stephen Graham (Save Me) and Anna Maxwell Martin (Motherland). Season one of Code 404 is now streaming on Peacock.
New cast members for Season 2 include Meera Syal (Goodness Gracious Me) and Clive Russell (Game of Thrones).
In this near-future comedy we meet two Detective Inspectors, DI John Major (Mays) and DI Roy Carver (Graham), the best of the best at the Special Investigation Unit, an elite undercover police team. When Major is shot dead at a covert arms bust gone wrong, Carver is plagued by guilt.
He blames his burgeoning friendship with Major’s wife for taking his eye off the ball at a crucial moment, resulting in his partner’s death. Which is why he’s so shocked when Major turns up a year later, raring to pick up things exactly where they left off.
Carver learns that Major’s been resurrected using pioneering AI, but budgets being what they are, the software still had a few glitches.
While Major 2.0 might have even more ego than his previous version, the reboot seems to have left his judgement, ability and large parts of his memory behind, making him far more of a liability dead than he ever was alive.
In season two, there’s still a few bugs to patch out. Having cracked a high-profile case with his long-suffering partner, the resurrected DI Major has finally reached his potential as the top cop in the SIU.
But it came at a price. At last realizing that his best friend had shacked up with his wife Kelly (Anna Maxwell Martin) while he was “away” (and a bit before), their partnership is over, and the pair go their own ways.
But when a 20-year-old cold case is reopened, the pair find themselves back together and thrown into the action.
Code 44 is produced by Kudos and Water & Power Productions, in association with Sky Studios, and distributed by NBCUniversal Global Distribution.
