FIRST LOOK Chewing Gum (Series 2)

For a relatively low key sitcom on E4, Chewing Gum became the breakout comedy of 2015 and turned writer and star Michaela Coel into a household name.


Not only that, but Michaela went on to win two BAFTA Awards (Best Female Performance in a Comedy Programme and Breakthrough Talent), as well as a Royal Television Society award for Breakthrough and Comedy Performance.


The series is inspired by Coel’s award-winning one-woman play Chewing Gum Dreams, which premiered at the Yard Theatre in Hackney Wick in 2012 before transferring to the National Theatre in 2014.


At the end of the first series, we saw Tracey and Connor leaving the Pensbourne Estate, dressed only in their pants and walking into the sunset and the unknown. Both had been thrown out of home, Cynthia’s wedding day ended in disaster, Connor lost his job, and their lives were all in a bit of a mess. Things weren’t looking great.


In the opening episode, Tracey’s return to the Pensbourne Estate doesn’t quite go as she would have liked. Best friend Candice isn’t happy to see her and mum Joy won’t let her in. But at least she’s back at work at Deepak’s Delectables.


Tracey discovers ex-boyfriend Connor’s got a new relationship, and ropes Ola into helping her convince Connor she has moved on. Connor meanwhile tells a few lies of his own in order to get Tracey to talk about what actually happened between them.


Here's a first look at the second series of Chewing Gum (now updated with even more pictures):


Here's the series trailer to give you a better taste of what's to come...

Chewing Gum returns Thursday 12th January at 10pm on E4
