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?

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.
