Drifters, the original comedy series from writer-performer Jessica Knappett about three best friends trying – and largely failing – to figure out love and life in Leeds, will return for a second series for E4.

On hearing the news of her show’s recommission, Jessica Knappett, who plays the lead Meg, said: “I’m absolutely delighted, it’s going to keep my mum and dad off my back for at least another year.”

C4 Comedy Commissioning Editor, Rachel Springett, said: “We are delighted to be bringing back Meg, Bunny and Laura for a second run of Drifters after a glorious first series. We look forward to seeing what humiliating, life affirming and troublesome moments Jessica Knappett has in store for the girls this time around.”

The new series of 6 x 30’ episodes will see hapless Meg, her daydreamer cousin Bunny (Lydia Rose Bewley) and no nonsense Leeds lass Laura (Lauren O’Rourke) face more hilariously humiliating encounters as their Gap Year starts to drift into its third year. Expect more drunken mischief, dodgy relationships and embarrassing jobs as the girls continue to “embellish” their fantastical CVs.
