The hit Sky cop show Bulletproof has been renewed for a fourth instalment, the broadcaster has confirmed. Noel Clarke and Ashley Walters will reprise their roles as Aaron Pike and Ronnie Bishop in a new eight episode series, to air on Sky One and TV streaming service Now TV.
After two hugely successful series of the Sky Original, and a third instalment special Bulletproof: South Africa (airing January 20), cop duo Bishop and Pike are set to be implicated in a grisly murder, leaving their jobs, lives and families hanging in the balance. The pair must use every ounce of skill and tenacity to bring down the most untouchable villain they’ve ever faced.

“We are ecstatic that Bulletproof has been commissioned for yet another season. It is a testament to the hard-working cast, crew, and everyone behind the scenes making it all happen,” says Noel Clarke. “We work hard to bring you something entertaining and heartfelt and we hope you enjoy it when it returns!”
Ashley Walters adds: “I am so pleased we can continue the journey of Bishop and Pike. This show has stood the test of time because of the heart we put into it. We really appreciate the support we have had from all that have watched. See you again soon.”
Shooting is scheduled for later this year, in and around London.
The show is a production of British independent Vertigo Films. Co-founder Allan Niblo says: “Bulletproof is a show that pushes the boundaries, and this series will be bigger, bolder and more rebellious than ever, giving viewers something they haven’t seen before. Bulletproof has a unique combination of action and humour, and with Noel and Ashley, a partnership like no other. We can’t wait to share their journey with audiences once again.”
Executive producer Paul Gilbert promises this next adventure for Bishop and Pike will feel “truly epic and put their relationship to the ultimate test.”
