Boy Meets Girl handed second series on BBC Two

Adorable transgender love story Boy Meets Girl has been handed a second series.
BBC Two has announced that they have ordered a another run of the show through Tiger Aspect Productions, and the story is due to go into production in Manchester next month and is scheduled to air in 2016.

Shane Allen, BBC Controller of Comedy Commissioning, said: “This series demonstrates comedy’s unique ability to bring insight, warmth and understanding to challenging subjects, and encapsulates the three bedrocks of the BBC’s duty to inform, educate and entertain. A welcome return for this warm-hearted love story with a twist. Expect lots more out and out bawdy comedy alongside some very tender and touching moments in this very modern take on a rom-com.”

Kim Shillinglaw, Controller of BBC Two and BBC Four, added: “Comedy is central to BBC Two’s DNA, and I want the channel to be a place where writers and creatives can do their most distinctive work. Boy Meets Girl was created from the heart and I’m so pleased that Elliott Kerrigan, Simon Carlyle and all the team behind this fabulous series are returning for another one. Boy Meets Girl ventured into territory that classic sitcom has never seen before in Britain, but did it with a warmth and an authenticity that BBC Two viewers really responded to, and I can’t wait to see what happens next for Judy, Leo and all the other wonderful cast of characters.”

We can. not. wait.
