The second season will be business as usual for the pair, as they are once again caught in an increasingly absurd series of events.
Yet, season two will open with the duo feeling nostalgic and dressed up in their best 80s outfits as they head to a school reunion.
It’s been over 30 years since they saw their classmates and they aren’t sure how to feel about it.
Stars Giedroyc and Perkins opened up about how they felt returning to their characters for season two.
“We felt incredibly protected in this environment and we’ve been able to do everything we would normally do. All the stunts, all the hanging about, all the messing around.”
Joining the cast in season two is Katherine Parkinson, star of IT Crown and Spreadsheet.
She is joining the cast as an unofficial third member of the hit squad and changing the dynamic of the series with it.
“She’s phenomenal,” Perkins added, “the triangular dynamic is so fun to play.
“It felt like we were still at school with those silly tensions that you have, particularly amongst girls.
“She’s so brilliant and the character is so repulsive. I think people are going to really love her.”
Fans should also expect a series of cameos throughout the season, including Sanjeev Bhaskar, Alan Asaad, and Nina Wadia.
Hitmen Reloaded is available to watch on Sky Comedy from September 29.
