Badults gets a second series

Trio to return in 2014

Badults – the BBC Three sitcom created by sketch trio Pappy’s – has been recommissioned for a second series, before the first has ended.

The show has proved a ratings hit for the channel, with the first episode attracting 2.1million viewers, consolidating all views in the first week of it airing.

And the final, sixth episode in Ben Clark, Matthew Crosby and Tom Parry’s debut series is due to go out next week.

BBC commissioning executive, Kristian Smith said: ‘The distinct silly sense of fun that Ben, Matthew and Tom create is an absolute delight and with its larger sensibilities, it sits beautifully in our mix of comedy on BBC Three.’

The second series will air sometime in 2014.

Pappy’s said in a statement: ‘We had so much fun making the first series of Badults so we're delighted that the BBC have asked for more.

‘We really love these characters and we're looking forward to taking them on even sillier adventures. It's quite different to a lot of other stuff on TV but the reaction from viewers has been fantastic.

‘Clearly people still want a big, knockabout show full of stupid jokes. So that’s exactly what series two will be.’

The sitcom is made by the Glasgow-based Comedy Unit.
