VICIOUS returns with Freddie (Ian McKellen) and Stuart (Derek Jacobi) delivering more biting remarks, snide comments and cruel asides. Joined by friends Violet (Frances de la Tour), Ash (Iwan Rheon), Penelope (Marcia Warren), Mason (Philip Voss) and surprise guest characters, the men embark on another season of humorous mishaps, hideous break-ups and heart-warming make-ups.
“PBS is excited to bring the series back for another hilarious and snarky season,” said Beth Hoppe, Chief Programming Executive and General Manager, General Audience Programming, PBS. “Ian and Derek’s undeniable chemistry and feisty wit truly make the show easy to love…even when it’s ‘vicious’.”
Leading up to the premiere of Season 2, on June 28, 2015, McKellen and Jacobi will serve as Grand Marshals of New York City’s 46th Annual Pride March, the largest gay pride parade in the United States. Joining them as Grand Marshals are J. Christopher Neal, a New York artist and leader of FluidBiDesign, and Kasha Jacqueline Nabagesera, co-founder of the first Uganda Pride celebration. McKellen and Jacobi will also be speaking at the NYC Pride Rally on June 26 to kick off the weekend’s festivities. See the two talk about their participation in a special video message.
