Filming has begun on the second series of the BBC's popular SAS Rogue Heroes, and its original cast will be returning for more dangerous missions.
The hit drama, which tells the story of the Special Air Service’s founding members, will see Jack O’Connell return as Paddy Mayne, Connor Swindells as David Stirling, Sofia Boutella as Eve Mansour, and Dominic West as Dudley Clarke.
Based on Ben Macintyre's best-selling book of the same name, the series dramatises the origins of the famous special forces regiment during the Second World War.
The cast will also welcome Gwilym Lee as David Stirling's brother Bill, and Con O'Neill as General Montgomery.
The first series of SAS Rogue Heroes attracted an audience of nearly ten million viewers.
Filming for the second series is taking place in the UK and Croatia.
The story picks up in the spring of 1943 with David Stirling in captivity and Paddy Mayne taking over as commander of the regiment.
Series creator, writer and executive producer Steven Knight is also known for the series Peaky Blinders starring Cillian Murphy and Taboo with Tom Hardy.
He said: "It's so good to be back in the wild world of the SAS so soon.
"The second chapter is even more incredible than the first and we hope to do justice to the brave men and women whose story we are telling."
Lindsay Salt, director of BBC Drama said: "Series one dazzled millions of viewers across the country with its swagger, action-packed set pieces and wit, winning a whole legion of fans in the process.
"Series two goes bigger and better to prove that Steven Knight and the team were just getting started - we can't wait to welcome the Rogue Heroes back to the BBC."
The second series of SAS Rogue Heroes is expected to air in 2024.
