BBC Three gets more Shrill

Second series of the Aidy Bryant and Lolly Adefope sitcom will come to the UK

BBC Three has bought the UK rights for the second series of the American sitcom Shrill.

Shrill’s second series of eight 25-minute episodes drops on US streaming service Hulu on January 24 and  will be available as a boxset on BBC iPlayer the following day.

Sue Deeks, head of BBC programme acquisition, says: ‘We are delighted that Shrill’s mix of sharp social commentary, engaging characters and relatable situations have proved to be such a hit with BBC Three viewers.’

All episodes of the first series are available now on iPlayer

Emma Sidi has taken great care to replicate the authentic feel of 1980s Spanish-language telenovelas in this spot-on parody, set in contemporary small-town England and which she describes as 'a bit Acorn Antiques, bit Garth Marenghi'.
