Mitchell and Webb comedy to return for season 2

Six new episodes of Back will be broadcast on Channel 4 sometime in 2019.

The comedy series Back starring David Mitchell and Robert Webb will be returning for a second season, Channel 4 has confirmed.

Six new half-an-hour episodes will begin filming next summer for an expected premiere date of mid to late 2019. 

Back follows Stephen (Mitchell) and his apparent long-lost foster brother Andrew (Webb) as they wrestle for control of their late father's country pub.

It's first six-episode run earned incredibly positive reviews from critics and audiences alike with many praising its brilliantly dark humour and clever performances.

The excellent supporting cast includes Louise Brealey as Stephen's eccentric sister Cass, Penny Downie as his hippe Mum Ellen, Geoffrey McGivern as Uncle Geoff and Oliver Maltman and Jessica Gunning as absent-minded bar workers Mike and Jan.

"I'm so pleased Channel 4 have given their backing to bringing Back back for a second series,” said Mitchell. "I look back on Back series one with tremendous pride and can't wait to be back working with the whole Back pack when we're all back together making Back."

“We're all delighted that Back is where it belongs: back.” Webb added.
