There are still a few bugs to fix with this robot A.I. update.

Beloved Peacock series Code 404 returns with everyone's favorite robo-detective, John Major (Daniel Mays), who is still getting used to his rebooted system. With detective inspector partner Roy Carver (Stephen Graham) unwillingly by his side, John eases his way back into the Special Investigation Unit police force in season two. An exclusive sneak peek at the premiere, airing tonight, Sept. 23, shows that technology still is at odd with the two cops.

"Got the bugger, and I brought you a Pop Tart!" John gleefully tells Roy while a criminal is handcuffed.

Throw in a grenade (literally) and a tense moment can only get more...awkward.

Code 404 follows John, newly resurrected thanks to artificial intelligence technology after a covert arms bust led to his death in the line of duty. One year later, and John is ready to re-enter the police force, albeit with a few glitches in his robo-system. And, the John Major 2.0 model seems to have impaired his judgment while clouding his memory.

Season two has John seem to reach his full potential as the top detective in his unit, but per a press statement from Peacock, "it came at a price."

Turns out, Roy has started a relationship with John's wife Kelly (Anna Maxwell Martin), and their friendship is done for good...or is it?

A crack in a two decade-long cold case leads to Roy and John teaming up again to stop a killer, and those A.I. bugs will just have to wait.

New cast members for season two include Meera Syal and Clive Russell, with Code 404 produced by Kudos and Water & Power Productions, in association with Sky Studios, distributed by NBCUniversal Global Distribution.

Watch the first look at tonight's season premiere above!

Code 404 premieres Thursday, Sept. 23 with all six season two episodes dropping on Peacock.
