The BBC’s World War II Drama ‘SAS: Rogue Heroes’ Releases First-Look Images

A new show from the creator of Peaky Blinders

Steven Knight, creator of critically-acclaimed BBC series Peaky Blinders, teams up with the BBC once more for the upcoming series SAS: Rogue Heroes. The 6-part series will show us the origin of the Special Air Service at one of the darkest periods of World War II. The SAS is said to be the world’s greatest Special Forces unit, and sprung up under extraordinary circumstances.

The series was shot on location in the UK and Morocco. About the whole process, Knight said that it was a privilege to tell a story about a renegade band of soldiers who used their wit and imagination along with firepower to stop the Germans from going across North Africa. It was truly one of the darkest periods of the war and the tale of this legendary band of adventurers and misfits will be a story unlike any other.

Before the first-look images were released, Karen Wilson, executive producer and Joint Managing Director of Kudos gave a huge thanks to the cast and crew for bringing Steven Knight’s “ambitious, extraordinary scripts to life with such skill and style.”

The cast and synopsis

The series boasts a stellar cast, which includes Alfie Allen (Game of Thrones), Sofia Boutella (The Mummy), Connor Swindells (Sex Education), Jack O’Connell (Skins), Dominic West (The Wire), and Tom Glynn-Carney (Dunkirk). Additional cast members include Stuart Campbell (Baptiste), Ralph Davis, Bobby Schofield, Virgile Bramly (Grand Hotel), Tom Hygreck, Paul Boche, David Alcock, Moritz Jahn, Arthur Orcier, Jordy Lagbre, Adrian Lukis, Anthony Calf, Isobel Laidler, and Ian Davies.

The story takes place at Cairo, in 1941. David Stirling (Swindells) is hospitalized after getting injured at a training exercise, and is bored. But Stirling also knows that in this war, traditional commando units won’t be helpful. With that thought, he creates a radical plan that changes all accepted rules of modern warfare, and fights for permission to recruit some of the boldest, brightest, and most rebellious soldiers. Their mission will be to create mayhem behind enemy lines.

The series will premiere in 2022 on BBC One and BBC iPlayer.
