The Completely Made-Up Adventures Of Dick Turpin Season 2 Updates

Summary

  • Apple TV+ renews “The Completely Made-Up Adventures of Dick Turpin” for a second season, starring Noel Fielding as the titular bandit.
  • The show’s surrealist comedy and positive reviews suggest it could continue for multiple seasons.
  • Season 2 will likely include the return of the main cast, including Fielding, Marc Wootton, Ellie White, Dolly Wells, and Hugh Bonneville.



Apple TV+ has renewed the cheeky comedy The Completely Made-Up Adventures of Dick Turpin for a second season, and more ahistorical hilarity is expected soon. Starring Noel Fielding as the titular bandit, Dick Turpin fictionalizes and lampoons the exploits of the real-life highwayman from British lore who, along with his Essex Gang, set out to become the greatest highwayman in English history. Like many projects involving Fielding, Dick Turpin utilizes surrealist comedy to pick apart the romanticized figure from history, but does so without losing any of the accessible charm that any comedy show should have.

Most of the reviews for the show’s first season were overwhelmingly positive, and it offered a side of the beloved Great British Bake Off host that hasn’t been seen since his early 2000s comedy classic, The Mighty Boosh. Similarly, The Completely Made-Up Adventures of Dick Turpin fills the void left by the tragic cancelation of HBO’s Our Flag Means Death, which also used hilarious anachronism to explore historical lore. Dick Turpin‘s season 2 renewal was something of a surprise nevertheless, but its open-ended premise and surreal comedy means the series could carry on for as long as fans keep watching.

Apple TV+ has found great success with their original programming, and though some series have ultimately been duds, most earn a sophomore season. This is true for The Completely Made-Up Adventures of Dick Turpin which was swiftly renewed by Apple just a few months after its season 1 conclusion. The order to renew was a vote of confidence for the anachronistic surrealist comedy, and proves that quirky humor is still popular decades after Noel Fielding’s other series, The Mighty Boosh, went off the air.

Noel Fielding Returns As The Anti-Hero Dick Turpin

As the name suggests, the legendary highwayman Dick Turpin is the center of Apple TV+’s sill comedy, and the season 2 renewal means he’ll be back for more antics soon. This also means that Noel Fielding will return to reprise his role as the celebrated bandit, though no official announcement has been made to confirm that fact. Joining Fielding’s Turpin will likely be the rest of his notorious Essex Gang, including the newly-confident Moose Pleck played by Marc Wootton, and the skeptical “Nell” Turner played by Ellie White.

Another important character who has to return for the cast of The Completely Made-Up Adventures of Dick Turpin season 2 is Dolly Wells as Elize Bean, the journalist who chronicles Turpin’s exploits but is also somewhat swayed by his charms. Similarly, Hugh Bonneville’s Jonathan Wilde should also return to play foil for Dick Turpin and his Essex Gang.

Considering the ahistorical nature of the series, and its surreal comedy, it’s impossible to predict exactly what could happen when the Essex Gang rides again in season 2.


The first season of The Completely Made-Up Adventures of Dick Turpin ended on a high note with Dick earning the approval of his dad and vanquishing Tommy Silversides, who had taken over the Essex Gang. This leaves the door wide open for season 2, and it will likely need to contrive some new conflict for the silly bandit to fight against.
