Sony Crackle today released the official trailer and new photography for the sophomore season of “Snatch” premiering with all 10 episodes Thursday, September 13 on the free streaming network. Ahead of the wide release, the scripted original drama series will debut with a sneak peek on Amazon devices through the Sony Crackle app starting Friday, August 31.
In the new season, star and executive producer Rupert Grint takes viewers to Spain’s Costa del Sol where the Hill Gang remains on the lam in another thrill-a-minute fight to save their fortune, and their lives. True to form, it’s not long after settling in the fictional coastal town of San Toledo that the Hills run afoul of the local kingpin and find themselves pressed into the malevolent crime boss’ service. Just surviving will take every ounce of skill and daring our heroes have but outsmarting their enemies and taking over the town for their own is something only the Hills are savvy and crazy enough to pull off!
