Express.co.uk brings you all details of the release date, cast, trailer and plot
When does SAS Rogue Heroes start?
BBC One has not announced the release date for SAS: Rogue Heroes.
Filming has also not started yet so we are unlikely to see it air before mid-2020 or 2021.
Creator Steven Knight also has a number of projects on his roster, meaning it could a while before the SAS: Rogue Heroes release date.
The showrunner is currently filming a version of A Christmas Carol and an Apple TV+ series called See and season two of his other BBC Drama Taboo is coming in 2020.
Who is in the cast of SAS Rogue Heroes?
The BBC has not announced the Rogue Heroes cast yet, with a statement saying casting would come “in due course”.
However, Knight has worked with Tom Hardy on four projects in the past, so the actor could be expected to make an appearance.
The Ben MacIntyre book that SAS: Rogue Heroes focuses on the story of SAS founder David Stirling, so the BBC series is expected to follow suit.
As Stirling was 26 in 1941 when Winston Churchill authorised his project, the series is likely to be lead by a relatively young actor.
What will happen in SAS Rogue Heroes?
Knight gave the following plot synopsis for his series in a statement: “This will be a secret history telling the story of exceptional soldiers who decided battles and won wars only to then disappear back into the shadows.
“We will shine a light on remarkable true events informed by the people who shaped them.”
BBC Drama controller Piers Wenger said of Rogue Heroes: “[The series] will lift the lid on the origins of one of Britain’s most iconic institutions.”
He also teased the series will: “Explore the characters, courage and flaws of the men involved with all of the honesty and swagger we have come to expect from Steve.”
Is there a trailer for SAS Rogue Heroes?
SAS: Rogue Heroes does not have a promo yet and one is not expected for some time.
As casting has not been announced yet and filming has not begun we are unlikely to get a trailer until 2020.
