Mickey Bricks and his team of highly skilled conmen return for the last-ever series of Hustle. As always they’ll target London’s rich and greedy and, with their grifting skills better than ever, they’re ready to push themselves to the limit in the search for riches.

But pushing themselves is just the start and with the marks looking meaner and the risks higher, Mickey will need some truly ingenious cons if they’re going to keep alive and out of jail.

Kicking the series off with a bang, the first episode sees the grifters take on gold dealer Dexter Gold (played by Paterson Joseph). Famous for parting the elderly from their precious treasures in return for a pittance and trading stolen gold at profitable prices, the gang is eager to give this fraudster a taste of his own medicine.

Masquerading as a renegade army unit, the team lures in their greedy mark with the promise of a consignment of looted Libyan gold. With Dexter chomping at the bit to have a piece of the action, he’s all too ready to strike a deal, but will the team pull off the con before the experts find out the truth?

Mickey is played by Adrian Lester, Albert by Robert Vaughn, Ash by Robert Glenister, Sean by Matt Di Angelo, Emma by Kelly Adams, and Dexter Gold by Paterson Joseph.
