UK comedy Back to Life has been renewed for a second season.
Co-creator Daisy Haggard (Episodes) also stars as a woman, who was recently released from prison after serving an 18-year sentence.
She returns home and stumbles back into adult life in the coastal town she once knew, while the mystery of her past looms over her. She tries to readjust to civilian life, restart old relationships and make new ones, and find a job, while desperately waiting for the world to forget what happened.
“Back to Life is a charming, funny and introspective comedy that resonates beautifully with Showtime viewers,” said Showtime Entertainment President Jana Winograde. “With such sharp writing and sensitive, winning performances from Daisy and the cast, we are confident that this gem from across the pond has even more delights to share with us in season two.”
Daisy Haggard, who co-created with Laura Solon, said, “Laura and I are delighted that Showtime and the BBC are giving us a chance to continue Miri’s story. There’s so much more to tell, and we are incredibly grateful to have the opportunity to do that.”
It screens in Australia at SBS on Demand.
