The announcement of the fourth series comes ahead of the release of series three, Bulletproof: South Africa this January. 

Walters and Clarke will return as the dynamic cop duo Ronnie Pike and Aaron Bishop, who find themselves caught up in a vicious murder that puts their jobs, families and lives at risk. 

The pair must work together and use all of their skills to defeat the most evasive villain they have ever come across. 

“I am so pleased we can continue the journey of Bishop and Pike,” said Ashley Walters.

Pike and Bishop will head to Cape Town, South Africa, in the three-part special, on vacation from their day-job in London with Pike’s family.

However, the job follows them as they soon find themselves enmeshed in the kidnap of a young girl.

As Pike and Bishop had befriended the girl’s parents earlier that day, they see it as their duty to rescue their daughter from the kidnappers who demand an outrageous reward for her return.
