Bad Move series 2 premiere date set for September 19th

Bad Move series 2 is set to premiere on September 19th at 8pm, ITV has revealed. Jack Dee will reprise the role of Steve and Kerry Godliman will return as Nicky. The married couple will continue to struggle with their relocation to the Yorkshire countryside.

Miles Jupp, Manjinder Virk, Seann Walsh, Philip Jackson, Sue Vincent, George Somner and Thelma Ruby will make up the sitcom’s supporting cast this time out.

As for the plot, ITV’s official info offers this teasing statement as to what the six upcoming episodes have in store:

“In this second series, the rose-tinted fantasy of an idyllic country lifestyle proves to be further away than ever from Nicky and Steve. Their crumbling wreck of a house continues to throw problems at them – they have to deal with everything from an infestation of moths to a septic tank that’s ‘backing up’ as Ken charmingly puts it.

“Nicky and Steve’s efforts to get on with the villagers fare no better. A charity dine-off with Matt and Meena ends in disaster, and when Ken is made President of the Garthdale Bowls Club, Steve’s attempts to ingratiate himself backfire spectacularly. Even when they find themselves on the same side as the rest of the village for an anti-fracking campaign, an unexpected development presents Nicky and Steve with a major dilemma. And Steve is further put to the test when he is chosen to play a key role in The Lantern Man Festival – an annual village tradition, the sinister origins of which are lost in the mists of time.”

The date to mark on your calendar, then, is September 19th.
