Prime Video today released the official The Outlaws trailer and poster, which preview the new series from award-winning writer and director Stephen Merchant (The Office) and Elgin James (Mayans M.C., Lowriders). You can view The Outlaws trailer and poster below.
All six episodes of the Amazon Original series will premiere on Prime Video on Friday, April 1 in the U.S., Canada, Australia, New Zealand, and Nordic countries, following an incredibly successful series premiere on BBC One and BBC iPlayer in the UK.
The Outlaws is a comedy thriller about a disparate group of lawbreakers thrown together to complete a community service sentence. Seven strangers from different walks of life are forced to work together to renovate a derelict community center.
When one of their number gets dragged into a dangerous world of organized crime, they unite in ways none of them thought possible.
The series stars Rhianne Barreto (Hanna, Dixi) as Rani, Gamba Cole (Hanna, Guerrilla) as Christian, Stephen Merchant as Greg, Christopher Walken (Severance, The Deer Hunter) as Frank, and Eleanor Tomlinson (Poldark, The Nevers) as Lady Gabriela.
The Outlaws is a Big Talk and Four Eyes production co-created by Stephen Merchant — who also serves as an executive producer, director, and writer — and Elgin James. Luke Alkin, Kenton Allen, and Matthew Justice also serve as executive producers for Big Talk.
The Outlaws is co-produced by BBC One and Amazon Studios. Global distribution is handled by BBC Studios. The pickup of the show’s second season was announced in November.
