The Lazarus Project Season 2

The Lazarus Project has been cancelled after two series on Sky, it’s been confirmed.

The Sky Original series, which first debuted in 2022, is an action thriller from acclaimed writer Joe Barton (Giri/Haji).

Its second series debuted in November 2023 but Sky has revealed it won’t be coming back.

A spokesperson for Sky said: “The Lazarus Project has brought audiences jaw dropping action and time-bending storylines across two seasons, and we are incredibly proud of this Bafta-winning series.

“Whilst we won’t be commissioning another season, we would like to thank the incredible team who made this show possible.”

The two series are available now on Sky on Demand.

Emmy and BAFTA-nominated Paapa Essiedu (I May Destroy You, Gangs of London) returned to lead the cast of series two alongside Anjli Mohindra (Vigil, Bodyguard), Tom Burke (Strike, War and Peace, Mank), Caroline Quentin (Dickensian, Bridgerton), Rudi Dharmalingam (Wakefield, The Split) and Charly Clive (Pure).

They’re joined by Colin Salmon (Resident Evil, Limitless), Royce Pierreson (The Irregulars, The Witcher), Safia Oakley-Green (Sherwood), Lorne MacFayden (Vigil), Zoe Telford (Genius), Sam Troughton and James Atherton (Hollyoaks).

The Lazarus Project’s second series sees stakes higher than ever as it battles to safeguard the future amidst a critical scenario. The world is trapped in a perilous time loop, leading to its end every three weeks, pushing the Lazarus team into a desperate search for a resolution to avert the total annihilation of humanity.

Central to the team is the steadfast Lazarus agent, George (Paapa Essiedu), currently out of favour for prioritising love over loyalty to the organisation. Despite this setback, George is unwavering in his quest for redemption, aiming to regain the confidence of his peers, friends, and his significant other.

However, as George delves deeper into the battle, he uncovers layers of deceit, leading him to question the true nature of the cause he’s dedicated himself to. It dawns on him that perhaps the only individual he can genuinely rely on is himself.
