Watch a preview of Ian McKellen’s Vicious

Ian McKellen, Derek Jacobi and Frances de la Tour return to ITV in the second series of hit comedy Vicious.

The new 6 part series returns viewers back into the boisterous world of Freddie Thornhill (played by Ian McKellen) and Stuart Bixby (played by Derek Jacobi) as we follow more of their adventures and mishaps.

The loving (and bickering) couple of over 50 years soon discover it’s all change amongst their close circle of friends as we catch up with Violet (Frances de la Tour), Ash (Iwan Rheon), Penelope (Marcia Warren) and Mason (Philip Voss).
