2014-09-20_0116Aussie comedy double Upper Middle Bogan and It’s a Date are both back with new episodes on ABC next month.

Upper Middle Bogan is back Thursday 16 October at 8.30pm followed by It’s a Date at 9pm.

It’s a Date will see new cast members Rove McManus, Rhys Darby, Deborah Mailman, Kat Stewart, Bridie Carter, Shaun Micallef, Lachy Hulme, Susie Porter, Jimeoin, Magda Szubanski, Tom Ballard, Joel Creasey, Tasma Walton, Sam Simmons, Eddie Perfect, Justine Clarke, Roy Billing and Vince Colosimo.

The hit family comedy Upper Middle Bogan returns for a highly anticipated second season. Bess Denyar (Annie Maynard), an upper middle class doctor, having discovered she is adopted and comes from a family of drag racers in the outer suburbs, continues to deal with the adoption bombshell and its consequences.

Caught in the middle of two tribes, it’s Bess who must keep juggling the fallout – of her adoptive and overbearing mother Margaret (Robyn Nevin), her loving but slightly spoiled husband Danny (Patrick Brammall), her twins Oscar (Harrison Feldman) and Edwina (Lara Robinson), not to mention the Wheelers – her newly found and delightfully bogan family – Wayne (Glenn Robbins), Julie (Robyn Malcolm), Amber (Michala Banas), Brianna (Madeleine Jevic), Kayne (Rhys Mitchell) and Shawn (Dougie Baldwin).

It’s A Date is back with a second series of laughs, romance and misadventures as an all-star cast navigate the speed bumps of the dating world.

Across eight new episodes, join Rove McManus, Rhys Darby, Deborah Mailman, Kat Stewart, Bridie Carter, Shaun Micallef, Lachy Hulme, Susie Porter, Jimeoin, Magda Szubanski, Tom Ballard, Joel Creasey, Tasma Walton, Sam Simmons, Eddie Perfect, Justine Clarke, Roy Billing, Vince Colosimo and returning cast Dan Wyllie, Ronny Chieng, Peter Helliar, Lisa McCune, Celia Pacquola, Jess Harris and Emily Taheny – as they explore the complications of making a connection in the modern world.

Featuring two thematically linked dates, each episode poses a question that explores a timeless dilemma, including: What’s the worst thing that could happen on a date? Is it OK to date a friend’s ex? Should you date on impulse? Do set-up dates ever work?

From a conjugal visit with a surprising revelation, to a swinger’s party showdown, Series 2 of It’s A Date will comically reveal the awkward, sad, confused and joyous moments that dating can bring.
