3. Extraordinary

Wednesday 6th March on Disney+



It's the hit Disney+ comedy about being young and finding your feet in a confusing world, when all you’ll ever be is ‘ordinary’ and this week Extraordinary returns for its secoind series.


For those who missed the first series, it centres around 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.


Series two picks up where the first series spectacularly left off as we follow Jen, played by Máiréad Tyers, on her powers journey as she enrols as a client at the power clinic. Soon, Jen discovers that the process of finding her power isn’t as easy as she hoped, and things in the rest of her life aren’t smooth sailing either.


Ex-cat, now-boyfriend Jizzlord, played by Luke Rollason, has had an unexpected revelation about his past, and Kash, played by Bilal Hasna. and Carrie, played by Sofia Oxenham, are attempting to be totally mature and dignified about their break-up, which is not easy when they’re still living under the same roof.


It seems that Jen and the gang are dealing with new levels of adulting and chaos that none of them are prepared for.
