The first episode of this series attracted an audience of 830,000, making it the biggest launch of a comedy drama on Sky One since 2012.
Filming is set to start on the second series in the Spring of 2018. Philip will return as Mal Pemberton, alongside Lesley Sharp who plays his wife, Jen. They will also be re-joined by Rosie Day and Brenock O'Connor, as their teenage children . The full cast list for Series 2 has yet to be confirmed, but most if not all of the regulars in the Kissimmee Sunshine Park are expected to reprise their roles.
Series 2, which will be 8 episode (instead of 6) is again being written by creator Mick Ford and filmed by Big Talk Productions, will see the Pembertons continuing to attempt to make their park a financial success but having to battle with the park's long-standing tenants to get their way.
About the renewal, Philip said:
"Looking forward to continuing living our dream, and teaching the residents on the RV park how to make a proper brew!!"
I'm very much looking forward to continuing the American dream with Phil, Rosie and Brenock. Can't wait to return to the land where dreams come true?
It's a great pleasure to take Sky One viewers back to the sunshine state in 2018. Season one made stars of the Pembertons and in season two they'll earn their stripes. But will the locals let them? Watch this space, or as Mal might unadvisedly say... 'see you later alligator'
