Chris Lilley as Ja'mie

Summer Heights High creator Chris Lilley has confirmed he's reprising his role as Ja'mie King for the new series.

The mockumentary, shown on BBC Three, will follow the teenager's last few weeks at school.

The shallow exchange student was last seen wreaking havoc in Summer Heights High, which aired on BBC Three in 2008.

Chris Lilley's revealed the private school student will be back in her home school of Hillford Girls Grammar this time.

'endlessly funny'

The six-part comedy series will be shown later this year.

"I find teenage girls endlessly funny," said Chris Lilley.

"Being able to write for and play the meanest in the school has been so fun.

"I can't wait to show everyone what Ja'mie's been up to."

The series is co-produced by Chris Lilley and Princess Pictures in association with ABC TV in Australia and HBO in the US.
