Sky One has ordered a second run of Stella, the comedy starring Ruth Jones as a 40-something mum juggling the ups and downs of family life, amid the chaos of her eccentric friends, relatives and children’s fathers.
The series created by Ruth Jones with David Peet, the series producer for Tidy Productions.
Peet said the second series “is fantastic news,” adding: “It’s been brilliant working with Sky to make a series that seems to have struck such a heart-warming chord with the audience.”
Ruth Jones added : “I’m over the moon to hear that Sky want more Stella. I’m looking forward to getting back to Pontyberry again. Even though it doesn’t actually exist.”
Lucy Lumsden, Head of Comedy, Sky commented: ” All hail Ruth Jones. Stella was our first and biggest original comedy commission and we are thrilled that our customers love it as much as we do. Bring on the second series. ”
Filming will take place this summer with the series set to return in early 2013.
