About “Wasp”:

shock! Eddie (Florian Lucas) is in prison. As his wife Manu (Lisa Wagner) continues to try to establish herself in the Arrow scene, he struggles for emotional survival in prison. But then he makes a deal with the judiciary: Eddie is released early for good behavior, but he has to stay away from darts in all forms until the end of the probationary period.

As Manu advances in her career, Eddie hangs out illegally in the Berlin area at illegal darts tournaments. But probation officer Barbel (Merritt Baker) waits for him only when he makes a mistake. Along with his old friend Kevin (Leonard Cheshire), Eddie initially earns a lot of money in tournaments. But then debt collectors Udo (Peter Lohmer) and Raul (Henry Morales) set a trap for them and suddenly Eddie and Kevin owe the betting mafia €50,000. Of course, Manu and Barbel should never find out about her, because Eddie has already promised Manu never to lie to her again. And Eddie doesn’t want to go back to the den, either. But it comes as it should: Barbel and Manu catch Eddie red-handed and have to go back to prison, while Manu’s career reaches unknown heights with the support of her mental trainer Ansgar (Alexander Jovanovic). But Eddie does not give up. Free once again, the wasp regains her will to live and tries to take revenge on Ansgar in the Big Darts Tournament for his conviction for betting cheating. He still has no idea that Manu and Jolanda Belidorn (Katja Fellin) have also discovered Ansgar’s secret and are pursuing their own plans.

Querin Schmidt, Sky Executive Producer: “After the very successful start of Season 1, we are very pleased to continue telling the story of Eddie and his entourage. With Jan Berger’s great scripts, we take a step from the world of corner bars to the ‘wow’ world of illegal underground tournaments. It certainly wouldn’t be easier for Eddie. , because it also requires many tricks, white lies, and plenty of amazing darts, to become one with himself and the universe(s) again.Happy, Toby Baumann for directing who brought out the story with a great deal of affection for the characters, but also with a keen sense of the clever and eccentric world For the series, so fans can look forward to the fast-paced, hilarious world of A Warm Rendezvous with Eddie, Florian Lucas reincarnates once again in a coherent form!”

Andreas Bryce, Senior Executive Producer, Gaumont . added: “The idea to tell a story about the former darts champion was a very bold and fun one in season one.
