Dead Pixels Series 2 starts on E4 later this January and kicks off with a double bill
We first noticed Dead Pixels in March 2019 when the first trailer was revealed. The show was very popular with the E4 audience, its biggest show since The Inbetweeners, and Dead Pixels series 2 was confirmed back in July 2019. The show stars Charlotte Ritchie (Alison), Alexa Davies (Meg), Will Merrick (Nicky), Sargon Yelda (Usman) and David Mumeni (Russel).
The second series sees the arrival of a new instalment of Kingdom Scrolls for our gaming fanatics. But their excitement is quickly quashed when they discover that the game, they love so much has been commercialised and overrun by a younger generation of players. Meg starts to wonder whether it’s time for her to grow up and move on, Usman goes to increasing extremes to hide his gaming from his wife and Nicky falls for a girl online who he invites to come and stay. Which definitely doesn’t cause any issues between him and Meg, because they definitely don’t have feelings for each other.
Actor Alexa Davies had this to say about returning to the part of Meg:
I am incredibly proud of series one and I was just so pleased people liked it. I fell in love with the show and with Meg when we did the pilot years ago and it’s always scary when something you’ve put so much work into is put out there for all to judge. But it went really well, people liked it and critics were very kind. Luckily people liked it and we are back with more for them. I hope they love series two just as much.
Dead Pixels series 2 is on E4 at 10 pm January 26, with a two 30 minute episodes. You can watch series 1 on All4 here.
