Plebs is a British television sitcom that premiered on ITV2 on March 25, 2013. The series follows the lives of three young men, Marcus (Tom Rosenthal), Stylax (Joel Fry), and Grumio (Ryan Sampson), as they navigate their way through life in Ancient Rome. The show is set in the city of Rome in 27 BC and follows the misadventures of the three main characters as they try to become successful and find love.

The show's main trio of Marcus, Stylax, and Grumio are all housemates who live in a rundown apartment in the city. They are all young and ambitious and are determined to make a name for themselves in the city. Marcus is the most sensible of the group and is often the one who is called upon to try and sort out the problems that the trio inevitably find themselves in.

Stylax is the most outgoing and flamboyant of the group and is always looking for a way to get ahead. Grumio is the most easy-going of the trio and is often the butt of their jokes. He is however, fiercely loyal to his friends and will always be there for them no matter what.

The trio are often seen getting into all sorts of trouble, from dodging angry landlords to trying to impress girls. They also have to deal with the whims of their employers, a gladiator named Aurelius (Tom Basden) and his feisty ex-girlfriend Cynthia (Ellie Taylor), who often cause problems for them.

Other characters who appear throughout the series include their boss, the cheating and manipulative senator, Nero (Karl Theobald), who has an ongoing feud with his wife (Doon Mackichan) and her singer lover (Sophie Colquhoun), a pair of flirtatious sisters (Lydia Rose Bewley and Bella Dayne), and the overbearing landlady (Maureen Lipman) who tries to control every aspect of their lives.

The show is known for its modern-day language and references, despite being set in ancient Rome. The humor is fast-paced and often surreal, with the characters often finding themselves in bizarre situations. There are also many cultural references to popular culture, which add to the show’s appeal for younger audiences.

The show has a loyal following, particularly among younger viewers, who appreciate its irreverent take on history. The cast is made up of a group of talented actors who bring their characters to life with a sense of fun and energy. The show also benefits from clever writing which keeps the humor fresh and unpredictable.

Plebs was a popular series that ran for five seasons before coming to an end on June 3, 2019. The show was praised for its clever writing, inventive humor, and talented cast. It managed to stand out from other historical sitcoms by modernizing ancient Rome and presenting it in a contemporary way. This helped to keep the show fresh and entertaining for its entire run.

Plebs is a series that is currently running and has 5 seasons (38 episodes). The series first aired on March 25, 2013.
