Because The CW only licenses the Bulletproof series, it’s likely much less expensive for the network to air than original scripted programming. At the same time, the ratings aren’t very good so it’s hard to tell if it will be worth it for the network to want any additional seasons (if they’re produced). Will Bulletproof be cancelled or renewed for season three? Stay tuned. *Status Update Below.
A British crime drama, Bulletproof stars Ashley Walters, Noel Clarke, Lindsey Coulson, Jason Maza, David Elliot, Olivia Chenery, Lucie Shorthouse, Lee Ross, Vanessa Vanderpuye, and Jodie Campbell. Unfolding in London, the series centers on Aaron “Bish” Bishop (Clarke) and Ronald “Ronnie” Pike Jr (Walters) who work as undercover police detectives. Although they are from vastly different backgrounds, these partners have a deep, brotherly bond that finds its foundation in their moral code. In season two, Bishop and Pike find themselves in a tense, heart-stopping game of ‘cat and mouse’ with a notorious and elusive crime family, whose connections spread far beyond the borders of London and the UK. Their chase for justice takes them from the streets of London to Amsterdam and Cyprus, where they risk everything to succeed.
