Series 2 of Spitting Image coming soon to BritBox

The popular Spitting Image reboot is bringing out a 2nd series on BritBox, the ultimate hub for streaming UK television. Series one was a huge hit on the platform, after it poked fun at a multitude of celebrities, Royal Family members, politicians and more, including Donald Trump, Kim Kardashian, Greta Thunberg and Jurgen Klopp.

Many of these famous faces are set to return for the second series, among other newcomers that ensures nobody is safe from a satirical roasting! As for series 2, topical episodes are set to be released weekly on BritBox in-line with current news events.

About the original Spitting Image

The show first aired in 1984 and ran through to 1996 and was watched by fifteen million viewers at its peak, which of course led to plenty of nominations. It had a whopping six seasons and aired on ITV. The original cast included Steve Coogan (Alan Partridge), Harry Enfield (Kevin and Perry), Steve Nallon, Kate Robbins, John Glover, Hugh Dennis (Outnumbered) and more comedians that truly made the show unique, which means there’s plenty to live up to!  

Programme creators had this to say about the show: 

’With the world getting smaller and more turbulent, the time couldn't be more appropriate for an iconic British satirical take on global events.’ 

Spitting Image is landing on BritBox on Saturday 11th September with a ten week series! BritBox is now available on our 4K TV Boxes. Stay tuned for more updates, telly news and recommendations for our telly experts.
