Mrs. Brown's Boys returns for a second series!
Good news for all fans of our favourite Irish matriarch from the BBC Press Office...
BBC One's hit comedy Mrs. Brown's Boys has been recommissioned for a second series by Danny Cohen, Controller, BBC One, and Cheryl Taylor, Controller, Comedy Commissioning.
The series was based on the sell-out theatre show which is written by and stars Brendan O'Carroll as Agnes Brown, a Dublin matriarch who just can't resist interfering in the lives of her family and friends.
The cast of the television show features the regular cast of Mrs. Brown's Boys on stage, and includes Brendan's real-life wife Jennifer Gibney as Cathy, his daughter Fiona O'Carroll as Maria, his son Danny O'Carroll as Buster, and his sister Eilish O'Carroll as Winnie McGoogan. Here's Brendan to introduce us to the Brown family.
Responding to the news of the recommission Brendan said: "This is unbelievable! I'm just thrilled that the BBC continues to have confidence in the show. The support we have had from all involved from Danny Cohen and Mark Freeland and BBC Scotland makes us just so excited to get back there and do it all again. Producer Stephen McCrum promised me that he would be faithful to the stage show and he has gone beyond this in making the show the success it is. I am living the dream."
Cheryl Taylor, Controller, Comedy Commissioning said: "Despite the rarefied language, the warmth of this series and the laugh out loud comedy antics have proved a huge hit with BBC One viewers."
Mrs. Brown's proved a big hit online as well as on the small screen. We've loved having her on-hand to answer viewers' questions for #AskMrsBrown throughout the series here on our Comedy Blog.
Look out next week as Mrs. Brown will be back with a final message for all the mammys in time for Mother's Day.
Mrs. Brown's Boys is a BBC Vision Production, co-produced with BOCPIX and RTE. The series is produced by Stephen McCrum & executive produced by Mark Freeland. The series is directed by Ben Kellett. The executive producer for RTE is Justin Healy.
The new series will return to BBC One later this year.
