Guy Ritchie's Snatch has a recent spinoff series which a lot of people didn't know existed

Guy Ritchie's Snatch has a recent spinoff series which a lot of people didn't know existed

It was released in 2017

Snatch was released in 2000 as Guy Ritchie's second full-length film, but did you know that there was a spinoff series released years later?

The movie starred actors who have since become Hollywood A-Listers, such as Brad Pitt, Jason Statham and Benicio Del Toro.

The crime-comedy film followed two main plot lines, with one following the search for a stolen diamond, and the other focusing on a little-known boxing promoter that is under the control of a ruthless gangster.

It carried on a lot of the themes, editing styles, and visuals on display in Ritchie's first film, Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels.

If you're a Ritchie fan, you might be excited to hear that there's more of his work that you can watch with the Snatch TV series, especially after the announcement of there being a spinoff series of The Gentlemen.

The Snatch series isn't directly linked to the movie though, unlike The Gentlemen, and is instead based off the original.

Released in 2017, the TV series follows a group of young scammers in London who become involved with the world of crime after finding a truck full of stolen gold bars.

It features a young and talented cast including Harry Potter's Rupert Grint, Skins' Luke Pasqualino, and Bridgerton's Phoebe Dynevor.

Both seasons of the series are available to watch on Crackle, and though it is not well-known among Ritchie fans, it isn't something you'd want to miss out on.

According to Variety, the series displays the same excellent storytelling that is supported by the exciting young cast, but it has a different feel to the movie.

This might be due to the fact that the film was just over an hour and a half long, forcing the need for scenes and editing to be quick and sharp, a key feature of Ritchie's works.

Rupert Grint AKA Ron Weasley stars in the Snatch TV series.

But as each season is split over 10 one hour episodes, it doesn't share the same pacing as the original - though that is to be expected.

It even has a 78 percent audience score on Rotten Tomatoes.

The show is described as 'adventurous' and 'punchy', though derivative when it doesn't have to be.

Apparently 'fun' as far as a 'fan-fiction' goes, it may not live up to the levels displayed by what it's based off but the series comes across as entertaining.

And who doesn't want to see Ron Weasley getting put in sticky situations with some of London's most violent criminals?
