The BBC comedy, which originated as a pilot in December 2020, and was commissioned for a full series which aired earlier this year, is reportedly set to return for a second run in 2023.

Written by Tom Basden and made by BBC Studios, the series has an all-star cast including Alison Steadman (Gavin & Stacey), Katherine Parkinson (The IT Crowd), Jim Howick (Ghosts), Tom Basden (After Life), Freya Parks (School’s Out Forever), and Tori Allen-Martin (London Kills).

Here We Go follows the highs and lows of the Jessop family as they navigate a combination of life’s everyday challenges - changing careers, keeping the romance alive within a marriage, adopting a healthier lifestyle, kidnapping a dog, destroying a swimming pool and sabotaging a wedding.

Moving back and forward in time, each episode offers an intimate, observed and absurd exposé of a modern British family doing its best to support each other, if accidentally annoying everyone else in the process.

The Sun reports that the BBC have commissioned a second series. A source told The Sun: "Audiences loved Alison’s wonderfully unfiltered character Sue. She is the matriarch of the family at the heart of the show, and audiences warmed to those around her, too."

In Series 1, having filmed his family’s disastrous attempt to carve out a holiday in the midst of the pandemic in the 2020 pilot episode, sees youngest son Sam continue to document the Jessop family across the year.

Series 1 of Here We Go is available to stream on BBC iPlayer. The second series is expected to air in Spring 2023. More details will be revealed in due course.

TV Zone approached the BBC for comment.
