BBC Two’s surprise hit comedy Boy Meets Girl is returning for a second series.
“Following the overwhelmingly joyous response to series one, the team have worked tirelessly to develop series two.”The ground-breaking show stars Rebecca Root and Harry Hepple and features a love affair between an older transgender woman and her younger boyfriend.
Series one showed Judy and Leo win the support of both their families and ended with them declaring their enduring love for one another.
Producers Tiger Aspect say series two will see them navigate their relationship through new choppy waters. It’s not easy getting to really know another person when you don’t have a place of your own.
Judy (Root) will befriend a young transgender man and Leo (Hepple) will embrace the world of work. Tony will have to decide how to spend his redundancy money and Jackie will discover love.
Pam and Peggy will compete to see who can be the most supportive mother and James might just have to find a job. Last time Leo proposed to Judy she laughed at the very idea. Will he ever find the courage to try again?
Kristian Smith, Commissioning Editor for BBC Comedy, added: “Following the overwhelmingly joyous response to series one, the team have worked tirelessly to develop series two of this incredibly important comedy.
“Boy Meets Girl returns exploring all the new comic turns in Leo and Judy’s romance; we will see some surprising shifts in some of their family members as attitudes and circumstances have changed since we last saw them.
“This year, we will also explore a whole new Trans experience.”
The show is written by Elliott Kerrigan, Simon Carlyle and Andrew Mettam and also stars Denise Welch, Janine Duvitski, Jonny Dixon, Nigel Betts and Lizzie Roper.
Tiger Aspect’s Executive Producer, Margot Gavan Duffy, commented: “Tiger Aspect is delighted to have another opportunity to work with this incredibly talented team and to find out What Leo and Judy did next!”
