Plot Synopsis

HITMEN is a half-hour comedy series about two best friends trying to make their way in the world with only each other to rely on. They also just happen to kill people for a living. Having stumbled into a career in contract killing, misfits Fran and Jamie are not your typical killers for hire. Working out of their scruffy van, each episode follows the hapless duo as they try to carry out their latest hit, inevitably derailed by incompetence, bickering, and inane antics. As each hit goes south, our (anti)heroes are thrown into one bizarre misadventure after another, each full of oddball characters and unexpected dilemmas. HITMEN had its U.S. series premiere on Thursday, August 6, 2020 at 3:01am ET/12:01am PT, when Peacock released the entire first season.
Season 2 of HITMEN made its U.S. debut on Thursday, October 28, 2021, as Peacock released all six episodes of the new season. Jamie and Fran are back with a new van, new assignments, and a mysterious new client Mr V, who seems to be providing them with an abundance of jobs. Meanwhile, the duo reconnects with an old classmate, Kat, at a school reunion. As the series progresses a new friendship between Kat and Jamie makes Fran increasingly jealous and suspicious. It's bad enough worrying that someone is stealing your friend without also having to kill people for a living.
