Sky Spies a second series

Darren Boyd sitcom to return

Sky 1 has ordered a second series of its pre-watershed comedy Spy.

Another ten half-hour episodes are to be made by Hat Trick Productions – plus and hour-long Christmas special.

The first six-part run began in October and averaged a consolidated audience of 697,200. Earlier this week it was nominated for best new comedy in the British Comedy Awards, with star Darren Boyd, who plays a hapless MI5 agent, up for best actor.

Lucy Lumsden, Sky’s head of comedy, said: ‘Finding smart yet accessible pre-watershed comedy for adults and kids to watch together is a vital part of our story on Sky 1. We couldn’t have asked for a better start and are excited by the plans for the next series.’
