Hit BBC Three sketch show Famalam returns this spring for a second series.
The show will revisit a range of popular characters such as grime MC Scribbler P, the warring aunties, and thwarted Nigerian philanthropist Prince Alyusi. Midsomer Murders investigator Detective Moses Mountree has a new sidekick, and Nollywood takes on Love Island.
Viewers will also meet a whole host of new characters such as woke Barry White, social media obsessed Peter and his long-suffering wife, plastic surgery aficionado Emma G, and offensive SoundCloud rapper X69.
The series was announced today on social media with a Turf Wars video from The E19 Posse and the Stratford Soldiers:
Akemnji Ndifornyen, producer, says: “Back like we never left… Ready to serve our hungry audience with more gourmet comedy dishes. Eat up, you’re most welcome.”
Famalam launched in April 2018 on BBC Three and BBC iPlayer with a slot on BBC Two. Samson Kayo received a BAFTA nomination for male performance in a comedy programme.
