BBC COMEDY HIGHLIGHTS FOR 2024, NEW AND RETURNING TITLES REVEALED

The BBC have revealed its slate of new and returning comedy series for 2024. Including a new series of Bad Education and the return of Romesh Ranganathan's Avoidance.



BAD EDUCATION

The new generation of Class K will all be returning to Abbey Grove for the fifth series, including glamorous gossip Usma (Asha Hassan), wannabe roadman Inchez (Anthony J Abraham), himbo Harrison (Bobby Johnson), clueless slacktivist Jinx (Laura Marcus), eccentric Warren (Ali Hadji-Heshmati) and energetic hustler Blessing (Francesca Amewudah-Rivers).



AVOIDANCE

Romesh Ranganathan stars in Avoidance, a series about living your life avoiding conflict, avoiding making decisions and avoiding the mess that causes. If series one was about a break-up and rebuilding a broken home, series two is about falling in love, messy reconciliation and a baby.


MANDY

The nation’s hero of the zero-hours economy Mandy returns for another series of micro-aggressive adventures, in which she battles her own personal cost-of-living crisis in a number of short-lived, ill-thought-through and poorly-paid jobs. Mandy is joined as ever by her friend, mentor and nail clinician Lola, played by Michelle Greenidge.



BLACK OPS

In series two, Gbemisola Ikumelo will be reprising her role as Dom and Hammed Animashaun (The Wheel of Time) will be back as Kay, with the duo set to be thrust into a new adventure. Akemnji Ndifornyen also reprises his role as gang boss Tevin.


HERE WE GO

Created by and starring Tom Basden (After Life), the highly anticipated second series is coming soon to BBC One and BBC iPlayer. The outstanding cast reprising their roles includes Jim Howick (Ghosts), Katherine Parkinson (The IT Crowd) and Alison Steadman (Gavin & Stacey) alongside Freya Parks, Jude Collie, Mica Ricketts and Tori Allen-Martin (London Kills).



WE MIGHT REGRET THIS

Centring around a new relationship, an impending blended family and an intense female friendship, the series follows Freya (Kyla Harris) a 30-something Canadian artist and tetraplegic. She’s moved to London for Abe (Darren Boyd), a 50-something straight-laced lawyer who thinks he’s the old dog that can learn new tricks.


DADDY ISSUES

The show follows Gemma (Aimee Lou Wood), who lives for the weekend when she can get blasted and party hard in Stockport, Manchester. But after joining the mile high club with a random hook-up on her way back from a holiday to Portugal, she's pregnant, and it couldn't come at a worse time. The only person Gemma has left in her life is her dad Malcolm (David Morrissey).



BOARDERS

Boarders is a high energy, coming of age comedy drama. Following a problematic viral video involving a student, our leads are offered sixth form scholarships to St Gilbert’s, in an attempt to rehabilitate the image of one of the country’s oldest and most prestigious schools.
