Post categories:

Jon Aird | 00:01 UK time, Saturday, 29 January 2011

Attention all passengers, Come Fly With Me series two has been cleared for take off! Yes a second series has been commissioned by Danny Cohen, Controller BBC One and Cheryl Taylor BBC Controller of Comedy Commissioning.

Danny Cohen, said  "Come Fly With Me has been a huge hit with audiences. I can't wait to see what Matt and David will do with the second series."

Mark  Freeland, Head of in-house Comedy at the BBC and Co-Exec Producer of Come Fly With Me has added "After such a flying start on BBC One, it’s great news that Matt Lucas & David Walliams will once again be filling the check-in desks, departure lounges & cockpits with their wonderful & weird characters.”

We'd like to thank those of you who have been so vocal in support of the show and whilst we can confirm that the new series will return to BBC One we can't say precisely when it will be yet as Matt & David have to fulfil a variety of commitments first.

Of course in the meantime you can still catch the whole of series one on iPlayer and enjoy all the online extras.

    I hope the Japanese girls come back in the second series. I loved them! They love Martin Clunes!

    Oh, and loulou, Taaj isn't there anymore because Omar Baba sacked his entire staffload. So not even the girls will be there.

    @Kirstie
    Keely and the maternity leave woman SHOULD be there. Because they were still working and/or didn't strike..>

    I hope they don't all go. I loved them characters, although it does give a fresh new slate for newer even funnier characters.

    I hope to see the return of Peter & Judith, my personal favourites! :D

    Sorry the first series was enough. They are very funny but their characters become boring very quickly. Repetitive, just like little Britain.

    Fabulous!! I cannot wait for the second series. I would like to make a complaint to the BBC about all those silly people who have made complaints about this series for being racist. It is not, they are jokes hence comedy. They are trying to spoil everyone's fun but thank goodness the BBC has not taken any notice. It is a comedy and of course some people will not like it. Well my view is to just not watch it. If they take the micky out of the British and Irish only there would be no racism complaints. They take the micky out of everyone. That is why it is comedy. If some people had there way there would be no comedy. If you do not like it then don't watch it.

    Absolutely brilliant! Even though I always found 'Little Britain' a bit hit and miss, I reckon Matt and David have hit the jackpot with 'Come Fly With Me' It is fantastic. Everyone I work with who has seen the series, no matter their race, has had nothing but high praise for the series!

    I lose patience with all the people who describe it as unfunny or racist. I think political correctness has gone completely mad in our society, and people seem to have lost the ability to laugh at themselves or anything else for that matter. Racial stereotypes will always exist. I'm black myself and find nothing racist about the portrayal of Precious or anyone else in the series. I really get fed up with people getting offended at every ridiculously minor thing these days. To those people, I say, LIGHTEN UP! Life's too short.

    The characters Matt and David have created are absolutely brilliant and I can't say enough for their talent at bringing all these disparate characters to life so convincingly. I look forward to Series 2. Pure genius!

    I love Ian the customs officer, drawing on the chap's 'tache with black marker was ridiculously silly but funny! Look forward to more silliness soon.

    OH MY GOD! I can't wait for this new series, it's amazing, does anyone know when it'll be on? And also, will taaj come back? He was amazing you get me? Because here's my top 3 gave characters in reversalogical order isnit, Precious Little, Moses Beacon, and my number one favourite of all time is Taaj Manzoa.. (don't know how u sPell that) innit :) HOW WILL I SURVIVE WITHOUT TAAJ AND MOSES?
