The 'con is back on' Virgin TV
05 April 2018
Original scripted series, Imposters, returns for Season Two
Virgin TV announces the return of its UK exclusive Imposters for a highly anticipated second season.
Back with more unexpected twists and turns than ever, the show follows Maddie (Inbar Lavi), the ultimate persona shifting con-artist, and the “Bumblers” – a trio of her recent, heart-broken victims: Ezra (Rob Heaps), Richard (Parker Young) and Jules (Marianne Rendón). Last season, the Bumblers joined forces in hopes of tracking Maddie down, becoming embroiled in a thrilling game of cat and mouse, before eventually teaming up with Maddie to pull off the ultimate con. The adventure continues this season with Maddie determined to reclaim her life after she and the Bumblers escape her former cohort Max (Brian Benben) and FBI Agent Patrick (Stephen Bishop). But in her attempts to settle into a new normal, Maddie quickly realizes that living in the game was not nearly as difficult as leaving it. Just as Ezra, Richard and Jules begin to master the art of the con, unforeseen events send them off on a wild, unexpected adventure. Meanwhile, Max – along with “The Doctor” (Ray Proscia) – and Patrick are out to seek revenge. With the stakes higher than ever, Maddie and the Bumblers must stay one step ahead to maintain their freedom.
Uma Thurman returns as a lethal ‘fixer’ Lenny and her former husband, Shelley (Paul Adelstein), also appears this season to cause trouble for Maddie and the Bumblers.
Season Two of this dangerously addictive series will comprise ten 45-minute episodes, the first launching on Virgin TV On Demand on 6th April. A new episode will be released every Friday evening thereafter to run in parallel with the US broadcast.
This new season joins a growing collection of Virgin TV Exclusives which are first run, addictive and highly acclaimed shows not available anywhere else in the UK. Top titles in this impressive collection include Kingdom, Ash vs Evil Dead and Good Behavior. New and established Imposters fans can catch up on Season One through ‘On Demand’, ‘Box Sets’ on Virgin TV.
David Bouchier, Chief Entertainment Officer at Virgin Media, said: First-class writing, an ambitious plot line and a brilliant lead performance from Inbar Lavi, has proved to be a magical combination. The return of Imposters is a welcome reward for the show’s loyal and growing fan base. The second series storyline promises not to disappoint with action, intrigue and surprises like never before.
Imposters Season Two will be available to Virgin TV customers with the Full House package. Along with all Virgin TV Exclusives it will be available On Demand through the Virgin TV V6 or TiVo boxes as well as on mobile devices through the Virgin TV Anywhere app.
