Sick Note Season 2 coming, “likely” with Rupert Grint!

otherprojectnewsicon_2Sick Note Season 2 coming, “likely” with Rupert Grint!April 10, 2017, 2:23pm– While we are still awaiting the release of the first episodes of Sick Note on Sky Atlantic with Rupert Grint playing the lead character Daniel Glass, word has come out that the series has already been confirmed for a second season, and that filming is scheduled for this spring!

We already retweeted these news during the weekend, and have just received word from Rupert’s representatives that while not 100% confirmed yet, it is very likely that Rupert will reprise his role alongside Nick Frost and Don Johnson!

As a reminder, here’s the production company’s description of the first season’s storyline:

Loveable loser Daniel Glass (RUPERT GRINT), is about to lose his girlfriend, home and job. But when’s he diagnosed with cancer, his life is turned around – everyone is there for him, even his malicious boss Kenny West (DON JOHNSON).
The only problem is – he doesn’t have cancer. Misdiagnosed by the incompetent Dr. Glennis (NICK FROST), Daniel is forced to perpetuate the lie to cover his tracks. But before long, Daniel and Dr. Glennis find themselves falling deeper into the twists and turns of their own deception.

We will of course keep you updated with further news about Rupert’s participation!

Rupert Grint in first trailer for Sick Note!

otherprojectnewsicon_2Rupert Grint in first trailer for Sick Note!October 14, 2016, 6:48am– It’s only been three days since we had our very first look at Rupert Grint in Adolf the Artist (check it out here in case you missed it) and already we’re being spoiled with another piece of amazing news.

We now have the very first look at Sick Note with a brand new promo trailer for the series. Thanks to TheRomione for uploading it to youtube so that everyone can enjoy it:

UPDATE: Unfortunately, Sky Vision has requested that the video be removed.

The trailer offers a great look at the 6-part show which is scheduled to air in 2017 (no exact date yet). Here’s Sky Vision‘s official synopsis:

Rupert Grint (Harry Potter movies), Nick Frost (Shaun of the Dead) and Golden Globe award-winning actor Don Johnson (Miami Vice) star in this brand new comedy for Sky Atlantic. Directed by BAFTA winner Matt Lipsey (Little Britain, Psychoville), this series is produced by King Bert, the production company founded by Jo Sargent (French and Saunders, Absolutely Fabulous) and writer-performers David Walliams and Miranda Hart. It’s the laugh-out-loud story of Daniel Glass (Grint), a compulsive liar who is stuck in a failing relationship and a dead-end job in which he is under the thumb of his irrepressible boss Kenny West (Johnson). Then, just when he thinks things couldn’t get any worse, he’s diagnosed with esophageal cancer. However, when his diagnosis encourages those around him to treat him differently, he finds a new lust for life. When it becomes apparent that he was misdiagnosed by Dr Glennis (Frost), one of the most incompetent oncologists on Earth, he must choose whether to come clean and return to his old rubbish life or to go on pretending to be ill. He plumps for the latter, but quickly finds that he and Dr Glennis are forced to spend every waking minute trying to stop the truth from getting out. Written by James Serafinowicz (The Mark Steel Lectures) and Nat Saunders (Trollied, Cardinal Burns), this is the story of a desperate man’s lie that quickly spirals out of control.

We’re beyond excited to see Rupert in Sick Note!
