The Outlaws series 3 trailer

With Stephen Merchant and Jessica Gunning

Here's the trailer for series three of Stephen Merchant's comedy crime caper The Outlaws.
Series three begins with crime boss The Dean (Claes Bang) behind bars awaiting trial, with the teaser showing Rani (Rhianne Barreto) getting back in contact with the other members of her Community Payback when a dead body turns up.

As a murder manhunt closes in on the gang, can they prove their innocence before The Dean’s case collapses, and he comes looking for revenge?

The show returns to BBC One and iPlayer on May 30 and internationally on Amazon's Prime Video – which has released this trailer – the following day.

Also their supervisor Diane – as played by Baby Reindeer sensation Jessica Gunning is now a fully qualified PCSO, and is training up an eager protégé, Stan (Harry Trevaldwyn).

Gunning – who also co-wrote one of the episodes this series – said: 'Diane is persistent, she’s ruthless, no-nonsense, she never misses a trick - or so she thinks! In a dream world she would become a police officer. She’s Cagney & Lacey’s number one fan.

'It’s been lovely all being back together, and I felt very lucky that I was in the writers’ room this time as I co-wrote an episode with Stephen, episode five. It’s been really exciting to be a part of helping draft the storyline for series three and get to know the characters more than I did before.'

The series also stars Gamba Cole as Ben, Darren Boyd as John, Clare Perkins as Myrna, Eleanor Tomlinson  as Lady Gabby, Charles Babalola  as Malaki, Tom Hanson as Spencer and Christopher Walken as Frank.
