UKTV announces that David Mitchell will challenge a brand new set of comedians to prove they can fend for themselves and demonstrate they have the skills to set up a new society in the wild with series two of Outsiders (6x60’).
Outsiders was Dave’s third biggest UKTV Original of 2021, with 776k viewers for episode one.
The comedians taking part in series two of Outsiders are Maisie Adam, Fatiha El-Ghorri, Darren Harriott, Jessica Hynes, Phil Wang and Joe Wilkinson.
David Mitchell said “I’m so glad that Outsiders is coming back and I can’t wait to really get stuck in to the routine of going home to a comfortable bed every evening, leaving a bunch of comedians to fend for themselves in the mud and scratch some sort of civilisation out of the dust.”
UKTV's Mark Iddon said, “We loved making season one with David and his gang of comics and very excited to do it all again with a fresh batch of recruits. Let’s see what the great British outdoors (and David) can throw at them this time.”
UKTV's Cherie Cunningham said, “We knew that Dave viewers would love seeing David Mitchell bring his unique comic voice to the channel and it’s a pleasure to welcome Outsiders back for more.”
Exec Producer Harry Lansdown said, “I’m delighted to be returning to the woods with such a talented gang of comedians to see if they can build back better without the normal trappings of modern civilisation!”
Outsiders comes to Dave and UKTV Play later this year.
