The Other One series 2 start date revealed as comedy returns to BBC One

The Other One 2022 air date

BBC comedy The Other One is back for a second series in 2022 – here’s all you need to know.

Following a one-off pilot back in 2017, the sitcom aired its first full series in 2020.

The show is a comedy about what happens when you discover your dead dad has a secret family, and you now have a brand new sister.

Series 2 of The Other One begins on Friday, 6 May 2022 at 9:30PM.

The cast will welcome back Siobhan Finneran as Marilyn, Rebecca Front as Tess, Ellie White as Cathy Walcott, Lauren Socha as Cat, Amit Shah as Marcus and Christopher Jeffries as Callum.

Caroline Quentin reprises her previous guest role of Auntie Dawn while Michelle Austin joins as Angela.

A teaser for the new episodes shares: “Series two sees further Walcotts emerging from the woodwork, with Cathy Walcott and sister Cat Walcott reeling from the news they have a brother called Callum. And that Cathy got off with him.

“Meanwhile, Tess and Marilyn find themselves babysitting Callum’s mum Angela when she’s thrown out of her house by her shocked husband. Marilyn is suspicious of the new arrival, but Tess is too busy making extravagant plans for spending her inheritance to care.

“Elsewhere, guest star Caroline Quentin returns as over-the-top Auntie Dawn, and Cathy’s ex-fiance Marcus is continuing to loiter.”

The series is created and written by Holly Walsh (Motherland, Dead Boss) and Pippa Brown (Psychobitches, Bad Education) and is made by Tiger Aspect Comedy.

David Simpson, Head of Tiger Aspect Comedy, said: “It’s such fantastic news we’ll be returning to this hilarious and unpredictable story. Holly and Pippa’s writing continues to sparkle with creativity and wit and I’m so excited to see the wonderful cast bring everything to life.”

Ben Caudell, Commissioning Editor for the BBC added: “There’s a wonderful mix of wit and warmth in The Other One, brought to life by a brilliant, vivacious cast, so it’s fantastic it’s coming back.

“Also, the first series ended on such a cliff-hanger that we had to do a second series just so I can find out what happens next.”
