Stan Lee’s Lucky Man Renewed by Sky 1


LONDON: Stan Lee’s Lucky Man has been commissioned for a second season by Sky 1, which will air the season-one finale of the original British drama on Friday.

Season two will see James Nesbitt return to his role as Detective Inspector Clayton as he struggles to control his compulsions and the never-ending battle between good and bad luck. The new ten-part season, co-created by Stan Lee and POW! Entertainment, will air in 2017. It is produced by Carnival Films (Downton Abbey, The Last Kingdom).

Nesbitt said: “They say that you make your own luck and I’m pleased to say that in this case we did! I’m delighted that Lucky Man was so popular with viewers and look forward to being back on Sky 1 in 2017.”

Adam MacDonald, the director of Sky 1, said: “What more could you ask for? It’s a crowd-pleasing crime drama combining the talents of Marvel mastermind Stan Lee and award-winning actor James Nesbitt. Roll on series two.”

Co-creator Stan Lee commented: “What a thrill it is that Lucky Man’s coming back for another sensational season! It’s going to be a terrific new ride with Harry and the gang, where fortune smiles on those who catch my king-sized cameo in season two!”

Richard Fell, executive producer at Carnival Films, said: “We are thrilled that the show seems to have found its audience on Sky 1. We feel truly lucky to be able to bring them the next charmed chapter of Detective Inspector Harry Clayton’s amazing story.”
