Am I Being Unreasonable? returning for a second series on BBC One

The hit comedy thriller is written by Daisy May Cooper and Selin Hizli who also star as Nic and Jen.

As series one came to an end, the series took another twist with a conclusion that saw viewers learn what really happened between Nic and Alex, played by David Flynn, that fateful night on the train.

Filmed in Bristol and around the West Country, the first series saw Nic grieving a loss she couldn’t share with anyone. Only her son Ollie, played by star in the making Lenny Rush, who she adores kept her going. When Jen arrived in town with her son Harry, played by Reuben Catt, she found a kindred spirit and soon Nic’s dark secret started to bubble over.

Speaking about the news that Am I Being Unreasonable? will be returning for a second series, writer-creators Daisy May Cooper & Selin Hizli said "When we first started writing this show we never dreamed it would get commissioned, let alone get another series. We’re so grateful to everyone who has watched it and we promise we will work our hardest to make the second series even better than the first... It’s gonna hit you with all the grace and decorum of a reversing dump truck without any tyres on."

To which Director of BBC Comedy, Jon Petrie added "We had so many questions after binging the first series that we were selfishly desperate to have more AM I BEING UNREASONABLE in our lives. Luckily, we know that our viewers feel the same way. Thank you to Daisy May Cooper, Selin Hizli, Jack Thorne and everyone at Boffola for creating such a funny, thrilling, genre-bending show. We can’t wait to see what happens next."

Produced by Lookout Point, Creative Director Pippa Brown said "What a privilege to be able to work with Daisy and Selin and the hugely talented team on Am I Being Unreasonable? again. It’s a giddy mix of joy and fear knowing where their comedically genius and genuinely terrifying brains will take Nic and Jen and the cast for a second series. We’re all very proud and happy to get going, thank you BBC.:

To which Commercial & Partnerships Director for Comedy at BBC Studios, Jonathan Blyth, added "We are thrilled about the news of a second series. Daisy, Selin & Boffola have produced one of the most talked about shows of the year. We’re excited to be working with the BBC and our key partners to bring this terrific series to audiences around the world and establish it as a major global comedy brand".
