Michael Sheen And David Tennant Will Reunite
The BBC One comedy, from Infinity Hill and GCB Films, aired earlier this year and saw the two stars playing semi-fictional versions of themselves as they tried to adjust to lockdown following the coronavirus outbreak.
“David Tennant and Michael Sheen are hilarious in BBC One’s knowing lockdown satire,” we wrote in our review.
Season 2 sees the pair attempt to navigate their new normal at home with their increasingly exasperated families while simultaneously trying to tackle the world of virtual Hollywood and their ever more fragile egos. Also returning are Georgia Tennant, Anna Lundberg and Lucy Eaton alongside Nina Sosanya and Simon Evans – plus a new addition to the regular cast, Ben Schwartz, playing the assistant to Michael and David’s American agent.
Following on from the surprise appearances in Season 1 of Judi Dench and Samuel L Jackson this season sees the regulars joined in their virtual hell by a whole host of unexpected guests. It hopes to capture our shared feelings of frustration and confusion at a world not quite ready to re-open. Moments that promise normality dashed before they can take hold. The tantalising prospect of comfort kept at bay.
Michael Sheen says: “It’s been so great to see how much people enjoyed the first season. Seemed like the laughs were much appreciated. It made us really excited about taking it further and going in some surprising and hopefully enjoyable directions this time.”
Georgia Tennant adds: “The prospect of getting my husband back into employment alongside the divine Ben Schwartz and the hairy, Welsh legend that is Michael Sheen all makes me very happy to be back for Season 2!
