Code 404 Recommissioned for Series 3!

Fantastic news today that Code 404 starring Daniel Mays has been recommissioned for series 3 by Sky!

They’re back to delete crime… Sky Original Code 404 – the futuristic crime-fighting comedy starring Stephen Graham, Daniel Mays and Anna Maxwell Martin – will return for a third series on Sky Comedy and streaming service NOW.

This announcement follows the great success of the first two series of Code 404, with the second series becoming the biggest season launch in the history of the Sky Comedy channel, while the first series of Code 404 was Sky’s fastest binged original comedy boxset ever.

Series three 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 series also introduces to the cast Vinette Robinson as Professor McAllister and Daniel Lawrence Taylor as journalist Searle.

When one of SIU’s own is murdered, 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. NBCUniversal Global Distribution handle international sales of the series on behalf of Sky Studios.

Catch up on series 1 and 2 now, all episodes available on demand on Sky and streaming service NOW.

Filming will begin in due course on series 3 and we expect the release date to be sometime in 2022!

Code 404 Series 2 is Here!

Today is the day! Code 404 premieres at 10PM on Sky Comedy with all episodes available online at Sky and Now TV!

The crime fighting duo of the future, DI Carver (Stephen Graham) and his AI-driven partner DI Major (Daniel Mays), are back!

Unfortunately, there’s still a few bugs to patch out. Having cracked The Juggler case with his long-suffering partner, the resurrected DI Major has finally reached his potential as the top cop in the SIU. But it came at a price. At last realising that his best friend had shacked up with his wife Kelly (Anna Maxwell Martin) while he was “away” (and a bit before), their partnership is over, and the pair go their own ways. But when a 20-year old cold case is reopened, the pair find themselves back together and thrown into the action. With an impending divorce, the return of his long-time absentee dad, and danger around every corner, the pressure seems to be getting to Major and he starts exhibiting strange behavioural glitches. However, much to Carver’s concern, the problems are more serious than a typical reboot can solve, and our cyborg hero may be looking at terminal failure.

Code 404 Series 2 features brand new cast members Meera Syal (Elizabeth Churchland) and Clive Russell (Clifford Major) who will be joining the cast. Alongside Stephen Graham, Daniel Mays and Anna Maxwell Martin, returning cast include Michelle Greenidge (Not Judy), Rosie Cavaliero (Dennett), Richard Gadd (Cleasby) and Amanda Payton (Parfit).
