Spitting Image Season 2 Release Date! Well, finally the season 2 is around the corner. Last year the BritBox amazed everyone by reviving the most famous series of Spitting Image. It is a British satirical television show which uses puppets to depicts the characters. It is based on the 1984 original series with the same name. Peter Flick, Roger Law, and Martin Lambie-Nairn had created this. It was very similar to the early series. The latest series also used puppet caricatures to depict contemporary celebrities. Those celebrities include- Adele, Kanye West, and James Corden. The series also used some characters depicting public figures, which include Boris Johnson. It also includes several Conservative cabinet members such as Michael Gove, Priti Patel, and Dominic Raab. And with some limelight, it also includes the puppet of Donald Trump.
Last year this series had made its appearance after almost 24 years. But fortunately, there were no special changes, it still maintained that old classy satirical way of projecting its message. There was the planning that the show would return in 2006. But the unexpected delay happened because of the dispute over the Ant & Dec puppets used to host Best Ever Spitting Image. All this happened because it was created against Law’s wishes. After that, in the September of 2019, the Law announced that the show would return with a new series. Finally, it was confirmed in March of 2020 that the show would return on BritBox. And on the 3rd of October, it debuted with almost 100 new puppets. Just after four days of its debut, it was renewed for a second series.
And now it’s all set to launch its second season. Fans of Spitting Image are curious to know whether any new puppet is added to the list, who are the voice actors. And most importantly, Spitting Image Season 2 Release Date!
