‘Youngers’ to return for Series 2 in 2014

Posted Filed under

Eight new episodes will begin filming in South London in November and will air on E4 next year.

Series 2 will see our Jay (Calvin Demba), Yemi (Ade Oyefeso) and Davina (Shavani Seth) return alongside comedy sidekicks Mandem on the Wall and “a host of exciting new characters”.

E4 teases: “The stakes are even higher as the complications of growing up clash with their dreams of musical success.”

Sophie Gardiner, Commissioning Editor for Channel 4 Drama, commented: “Youngers is such a fresh, vivid and original take on teen life, I’m thrilled that it connected with the E4 audience in the way it did – with over half of viewers aged between 10 and 24 years old. I’m delighted that Jay, Yemi and Davina will be back for a second series.”

Executive Producer, Luke Alkin added: “The critical reaction to Youngers has been fantastic. Series 1 was loved by its young audience so we’re absolutely delighted to be bringing it back again.”

Series 1 launched on E4 in March.
