Sky has renewed Code 404 for a third season.
The comedy about a detective duo and an experimental AI project stars Stephen Graham and Daniel Mays as a cop and his partner, who is brought back from the dead as a super-charged crime-fighting machine.
“Daniel Mays and Stephen Graham are laugh-out-loud funny in this surprising and silly cop comedy,” we wrote in our review of Season 1.
Season 1 was Sky’s fastest binged original comedy boxset ever. The programme was swiftly green-lit for a second run, which premiered last month on Sky Comedy, becoming the biggest season launch in the history of the relatively young channel
Season 3 welcomes back Daniel Mays and Stephen Graham as the AI-enhanced “supercop” DI John Major and his long-suffering partner DI Roy Carver, along with Anna Maxwell Martin, Rosie Cavaliero, Michelle Greenidge, Richard Gadd, Amanda Payton, Tracy-Ann Oberman and Michael Armstrong. This season also introduces to the cast Vinette Robinson as Professor McAllister and Daniel Lawrence Taylor as journalist Searle.
Season 3 sees one of SIU’s own is murdered, leaving Major and Carver become hellbent on solving the case and proving their worth. But it’s bigger than they thought. Forensic psychologist Professor McAllister is brought in to work the case; but still the killer manages to evade capture and wreak havoc. Can they hunt the killer down before it’s too late?
Code 404 is co-produced by Kudos, part of Banijay UK, and Water & Power Productions and is executive produced by Phil Temple, Tom Miller and Sam Myer. The series is written by Daniel Peak and directed by Al Campbell. The series was commissioned by Jon Mountague, Director of Comedy at Sky Studios and Zai Bennett, MD of Content at Sky UK & Ireland and was co-funded by Sky Studios.
