No Offence to return to Channel 4

Paul Abbott’s critically-lauded police procedural drama No Offence  has been recommissioned for
a second series by Channel 4.

Out spoken, out of line and often out of order, DI Vivienne Deering (Joanna Scanlan), DC Dinah
Kowalska (Elaine Cassidy) and DS Joy Freers ( Alexandra Roach) will return for eight brand new
episodes to strike fear in the hearts of wrong doers and superiors alike. Filming starts in
Manchester in early 2016.

Joining our dynamic trio will be our gobby, crusading Friday Street regulars, featuring an ensemble
cast of Will Mellor, Paul Ritter, Colin Salmon, Ste Johnston, Tom Varey, Neet Mohan, Saira
Choudhry and Charlie May-Clark.

In Paul Abbott’s unflinching hands, this fast paced, taboo-busting drama series will continue to
explore the underbelly of Manchester, delivering chilling and moving storylines, set against the
lively crime landscape surrounding Friday Street Station.
The new series will see the team investigating a whole new case, involving warring crime families
and will see Deering come up against her toughest adversary yet – a woman who is pretty much her
mirror image, in her brains, ingenuity and determination, except she’s on the other side of the law!
Paul Abbott will continue to write on the series at his Writers’ Studio alongside Paul Tomalin, Mark
Greig and Jimmy Dowdall.

Piers Wenger, Channel 4 Head of Drama says: “ No Offence is not just unlike any other cop show on
TV, it’s unlike any other show on TV and we are delighted to announce its return next year. Paul and 
the cast have set the bar high in terms of thrills, spills and belly laughs this year and we can’t wait to
see where they go in series two.”
