‘This Is Jinsy’ to return for Series 2 in 2013

Sky Atlantic have announced today that a second series of cult comedy This Is Jinsy will air on the channel in 2013.

The eight new 30-minute episodes will be filmed next year.

Guest stars in Series 1 included David Tennant, Harry Hill, Catherine Tate, Jennifer Saunders, Jane Horrocks, Simon Callow and Peter Serafinowicz.

Sky’s Head of Comedy, Lucy Lumsden, commented: “I can’t wait to travel back to the wonderful island of Jinsy for another series of insanely brilliant comedy. Chris and Justin’s creation is the perfect fit for Sky Atlantic HD and its wealth of unique story-telling.”

Executive producer Chris Carey and producer James Dean added: “’We are thrilled that Sky Comedy is bringing This Is Jinsy back to Sky Atlantic. Series 2 will be bigger, better and funnier.”

He teased: “[There will be] more songs, the return of our titanic tag team of director Matt Lipsey and editor Charlie Phillips, but most importantly another opportunity for Chris and Justin to put on wigs and generally tit around with stuffed animals.”
