The second series will pick up where series one spectacularly left off.
Today at the Edinburgh Television Festival, Disney+ has announced new cast members joining the second series of hit comedy Extraordinary with rising talent Máiréad Tyers, Sofia Oxenham, Bilal Hasna and Luke Rollason all returning as Jen, Carrie, Kash and Jizzlord. Also returning are Siobhán McSweeney as Jen’s mum, Mary and Robbie Gee as Jen’s stepdad, Ian.
They'll be joined by Julia Barratt as George, Jen’s power coach at the Discovery clinic, Rosa Robson as Nora, an unexpected person from Jizzlord’s past, Kwaku Mills as Clark, Carrie's new work colleague and Derek Jacobi who will voice a special cameo role.
The first series imagined a world where everyone has a superpower... except you. 10 years ago, everyone over the age of 18 got their superpower. But Jen, played by Máiréad Tyers, 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.
