Ed McCardie and Corinne Marrinan created and produced ‘Spotless,’ a dark comedy-drama series for Tandem Communications (Studio Canal) and Rosetta Media. The show is set in London and revolves around the life of a family man, Jean Bastiere, who enjoys a peaceful existence with his wife and kids. It all goes up in smoke when he discovers that he hasn’t seen or heard from his outlaw brother in years. Jean’s past resurfaces, despite her best efforts to keep it buried. Esquire and Netflix both picked up ‘Spotless’ for international distribution after it debuted in the magazine in 2015.
Rat in the Kitchen Season 2 Premiere Date on TBS: Renewed and Cancelled?
As Jean Bastiere, Denis Menochet plays Martin Bastiere, Miranda Raison plays Julie Greer-Bastiere, Doug Allen plays Joey Samson and Liam Garrigan plays Victor Clay; Kate Magowan plays Sonny Clay, and Tanya Fear plays Claire; the cast of “Spotless” is equally impressive.
It introduces us to Jean Bastiere, played by Marc-Andre Grondin, a police contractor who cleans up crime scenes in London. One day, he loses his job. The next, he gets the same job back. To help his long-lost brother (Denis Menochet), who has arrived in his van carrying the body of a dead woman, he must work against the law this time. On closer inspection, it becomes clear that his brother, Jean, willfully defaults on his obligations and is engaged in criminal activity full-time. The arrival of Jean’s long-lost sibling brings back painful memories of the past she had hoped to forget. As a result, Jean finds herself entangled in a web of criminal activity. This puts him in jeopardy of severing his marriage to Julie, who has long suspected that he was involved in criminal activity.
At some point during the series, we see Jean and Martin plotting how they can prove Victor is a dangerous criminal and that keeping him around would be a mistake for Nelson. Because they are fed up with Victor putting people’s lives in danger, the two decide to put all of their efforts into stopping him. They devise a methodical strategy to apprehend Victor in the act without putting anyone in danger. This is just the beginning. To establish his guilt, they’ll need a sample of his sperm. In a restaurant, Martin and Victor meet. When Victor thinks Martin is trying to get him to tell Nelson the truth, he is being tricked into going to a brothel with him to get his semen. Victor’s evil nature is finally exposed by Jean and Martin.
‘Spotless,’ a dark comedy with a moody undertone, was a hit with both fans and critics when it premiered. It’s a story that combines “elements of danger and drama with a sharp satirical edge,” breaking genre boundaries. An ambitious scripted project from Esquire, it’s a pleasure to hear it read aloud.
TOTEMS SEASON 2: RELEASE DATE, CAST, TRAILER, AND EPISODES, Latest Updates!
Spotless Season 2 Release Date
Season 1 of ‘Spotless’ debuted on Canal+ in France on March 16, 2015. Finally, the Esquire Network picked it up for its American audience. New episodes began airing here in November of that year. Netflix was granted the show’s international distribution rights.
When it comes to a second season, Esquire had said as much as a year and a half ago, in April 2016. An official from the network confirmed their plans to work with Tandem again on a future episode. It’s still unclear when the second season of Spotless will air, despite the show’s official confirmation. What transpired, then?
Esquire, the publication that first broke the news, was a joint venture between NBC Universal and Esquire’s parent company, the Hearst Corporation. Esquire’s decline was sped up by the rise of several new cable networks and a lack of viewership, and it went out of business in 2017. And ‘Spotless,’ is a wholly-owned Esquire production, is unlikely to be revived anytime soon, either. Furthermore, the majority of its cast members have since moved on to other projects. Since December 2016, it hasn’t tweeted anything. As a result, it appears that the show has been canceled.
Fans of “Spotless” will be disappointed to hear this news because the show had so much promise. However, who knows? Surprises await you in the world of television! Also, we’ll keep you informed about the ‘Spotless’ season 2 release date if anything changes.
The first season’s official trailer can be seen below. Get a taste of what the series is all about by checking it out. Also, if you haven’t seen it, Netflix has the first season’s 10 episodes available for streaming.
