After You've Gone - Second Series Lined Up!

The recent successful BBC One comedy After You’ve Gone has been recommissioned for a second series of eight episodes with an additional Christmas special for transmission later this year.

During the seven-week transmission After You’ve Gone gained at least 1.5 million viewers, rising from 4.1 million to a peak audience of 5.8 million viewers.

The second series of After You’ve Gone will see sparks fly once more between Nicholas Lyndhurst (playing Jimmy Venables) and Celia Imrie (playing his mother-in-law, Diana) as they unite in a bid to share not only parental duties but also the family home while Jimmy’s ex-wife is overseas.

Dani Harmer, star of Tracy Beaker, will also return to screen as Jimmy’s smart-talking daughter, Molly, alongside Ryan Sampson as Jimmy’s brilliantly, eccentric son, Alex.

Peter Fincham, Controller, BBC One, says: “Comedy is really hitting its stride on BBC One, with the return of Jam And Jerusalem, Not Going Out and now a new commission for After You’ve Gone. The comedy strategy of commissioning pilots is delivering for BBC One audiences.”
