The Completely Made-Up Adventures of Dick Turpin Renewed by Apple

Apple TV+ has given the green light to a second season of The Completely Made-Up Adventures of Dick Turpin, the comedy-adventure series starring Noel Fielding (The Mighty Boosh, The Great British Bake Off) as a legendary British highwayman. The series debuted globally on Friday, March 1, 2024.

In the six-episode series, Dick Turpin (Fielding) sets out on a journey of wildly absurd escapades when he’s made the reluctant leader of a band of outlaws — and tasked with outwitting corrupt lawman and self-appointed thief-taker Jonathan Wilde (Hugh Bonneville).

In this irreverent retelling set in the 18th century, Turpin is the most famous but least likely of highway robbers, whose success is defined mainly by his charm, showmanship, and great hair.

Together with his gang of lovable rogues, Turpin experiences the highs and lows of his new endeavors, including a brush with celebrity, while trying to escape the clutches of the thief-taker.
