The Radio Times reports that Michaela Coel’s hilarious E4 comedy Chewing Gum has been recommissioned for a second series. 

Coel said:

“The love and support for my Chewing Gum baby has been overwhelming and I can’t wait to get started on the second series,” said Coel following the recommission. “All I’ve got to do now is write it.”

Rachel Springett, Commissioning Editor for Comedy at Channel 4, said:

“Michaela is a rare and exceptional talent; it has been inspirational to work with her on her first TV series and to see how incredibly multi-talented and fresh her viewpoint is, it’s extraordinary. We are thrilled to be working with her again on this second series.”

The second six-part series will air in 2016.

Chewing Gum is adapted from Coel’s 2012 National Theatre stage play Chewing Gum Dreams, the series’.

Congratulations Michaela.
