Disney+ has confirmed that filming is now underway for the second season of the hit comedy series, Extraordinary from creator and writer Emma Moran and Sid Gentle Films. Season two was confirmed by Johanna Devereaux, VP of Scripted Content and Extraordinary Executive Producer for Disney+, at the Season one premiere last week.
Season two picks up where season one spectacularly left off. Ten years ago, everyone over the age of 18 got their superpower. Season one sees Jen, a painfully self-aware 25-year-old woman, still waiting to get hers. She’d take anything at this point. Adrift in a big, confusing world and armed with nothing but a bit of hope, a lot of desperation and her flatmates, Jen begins her journey to find her maybe-superpower. But in doing so, she might discover the joy of being just kind of ok.
Extraordinary is led by a cast of rising UK talent, including Máiréad Tyers (Jen), Sofia Oxenham (Carrie), Bilal Hasna (Kash), and Luke Rollason (Jizzlord). Additional cast members include Siobhán McSweeney (Jen’s mum, Mary) and Robbie Gee (Jen’s stepdad, Ian), who will all be returning for season two.
Written by series creator Emma Moran, a stand-out debut writer with an utterly distinctive voice. Toby McDonald will return to direct the opening of the season, and Jennifer Sheridan will return for block two. This is a fresh, innovative comedy about being young and finding your feet in a confusing world when all you’ll ever be is ‘ordinary’.
Extraordinary is executive produced by Sally Woodward Gentle, Lee Morris and Charles Dawson for Sid Gentle Films, the production company behind Killing Eve. The series is executive produced by Johanna Devereaux, Vice President, Scripted Content for Disney+ and Emma Moran. Series producer is Charlie Palmer, with Abíólá Rufai-Awójídé as producer.
