The news was announced at the premiere of series one in London ahead of the launch on Disney+ on Wednesday (25th January).
Extraordinary is the highly anticipated new UK comedy about being young and finding your feet in a confusing world, when all you’ll ever be is ‘ordinary’ and now ahead of the launch of series one, Disney+ have confirmed that the series will return for a second series, with filming due to start later this month.
The series has been created by Emma Moran and directed by Toby McDonald, Jennifer Sheridan and Nadira Amrani with Máiréad Tyers, Sofia Oxenham, Bilal Hasna and Luke Rollason as the four leads in what is for each of them, a breakout role.
Máiréad plays Jen, a young, painfully self-aware woman, who lives in a world where everyone has a superpower... except her.
10 years ago, everyone over the age of 18 got their superpower. But Jen at 25 is still waiting to get hers. She’d take anything at this point. Adrift in a big, confusing world and armed with nothing but a bit of hope, a lot of desperation and her flatmates, Jen begins her journey to find her maybe-superpower. But in doing so, she might discover the joy of being just kind of OK.
Alongside Sofia as Carrie, Bilal as Kash and Luke as Jizzlord, Extraordinary also stars Siobhan McSweeney as Jen’s mum Mary, Robbie Gee as Jen’s stepdad Ian, Safia Oakley-Green as Jen’s half-sister Andy and Ned Porteous as Luke.
