‘Hebburn’ to return for Series 2

Posted Filed under

The comedy will return later this year for a new six-part series and a Christmas special.

Starring Jim Moir and Gina McKee, Series 1 launched last October and opened to an audience of more than two million.

Creator Jason Cook commented: “I’m obviously proper over the moon about the second series. Series 1 was so well received that we always had hopes of getting re-commissioned but now it’s real! And having a Christmas special really is the icing on the cake; I got quite giddy when I was told we’d got that. There’s loads planned for ‘Hebburn 2.0′ and we can’t give anything away although I can say that we are finally going to find out what Winny did.”

Kristian Smith, Executive Editor, Comedy Commissioning added: “I’m thrilled that audiences have taken Hebburn to their hearts as much as we have, and delighted we’re making a second series. Jason’s creation is a brilliant piece of comedy and we’re so lucky to have such a phenomenal cast bringing it all to life.”
