Sky have announced the critically acclaimed comedy drama Upright – starring actor, musician and comedian Tim Minchin and rising global star Milly Alcock – will return for a second series.
The successful first series of Upright premiered to rave reviews in the UK, Australia and the US, and the second season will see misfit duo Lucky and Meg trade the desert for the steamy tropics of Far North Queensland as they hit the road – and the river – on a mission.
Tim Minchin said: “The experience of making Upright was such a joy, and audience reactions from all over the world were so incredibly positive and moving, we knew we had to send Meg and Lucky on another adventure. There’s a lot of story still to tell, and such a fantastic team of people lined up to tell it.”
Tim will be joined by co-star Milly Alcock, recently cast in the hugely anticipated Game of Thrones prequel series House of Dragons, who returns as feisty teenager Meg.
The second series of Upright is currently in development, with filming to commence in Queensland in 2022.
The complete first series is available to watch on Sky on demand and streaming service NOW.
