Channel 4 has ordered a second series of The Lateish Show with Mo Gilligan.
Mo Gilligan comments: “This is incredible news. This was always a really bold, ambiguous project and I’m really proud of what we’ve achieved as a team. I’d like to thank each and every person who has watched, supported and shared the show. You make Lateish the triumph it is, and I am so grateful. Time for more Nursery Grimes!”

Phil Harris, Head of Entertainment at Channel 4 said, “We are delighted Mo is fronting a new series of BAFTA nominated The Lateish Show. He has an infectious energy on and off screen and there’s nobody better than Mo to bring our audiences the fun we all want in 2021.”

Mo is the most talented comic of his generation and we can’t wait to get working on a second series worthy of his prodigious skills. We are enormously proud of series 1, (hats off BAFTA) series 2 will take the show to the next level - infusing 2021 with Mo’s infectious positivity.”
