The Goes Wrong Show is back for series 2 on BBC One - here's all you need to know.
The Goes Wrong Show is back for a new second season based on The Play That Goes Wrong, the internationally successful, award-winning Mischief Theatre brand.
Described as the "biggest disaster yet", the series sees the well-meaning amateurs of the Cornley Dramatic Society perform a half-hour play each week:
And every week, the performance goes terribly, terribly wrong. Sets collapse, special effects fail, actors dry - life, limb and the studio audience are threatened. But the show must go on… from the creators of The Play That Goes Wrong and Peter Pan Goes Wrong.
The Goes Wrong Show cast
The Goes Wrong Show, is written by and stars the original founding Mischief Theatre members; Henry Lewis, Jonathan Sayer, and Henry Shields alongside Nancy Zamit, Charlie Russell, Bryony Corrigan, Greg Tannahill, Dave Hearn and Chris Leask.
Chris Bean, Director of the Cornley Drama Society, commented: “We are delighted, if not a little surprised to have been commissioned to create a second series of The Goes Wrong Show.
"It’s no secret that we hit a few snags during production of the first series, but these snags were almost all caused by poor communication. To remedy that for the second series we are issuing all employees with five telephones.”
When is The Goes Wrong Show next on TV?
The Goes Wrong Show airs its first episode on Monday, 27 September at 8:30PM and continues weekly on TV.
Episodes will continue weekly on BBC One or you can watch all episodes online and catch up via BBC iPlayer here.
The new series has five episodes:
Summer Once Again - A coup in the ranks means that Robert is in charge of this week’s show, and he is not going to accept the usual shambolic standards as they present a Downton-esque family saga.
The Most Lamentable... - Chris returns to the leadership of the Cornley Drama Society and puts on a production of a little-known play by Shakespeare. Colin Shakespeare, that is.
There Is No Escape - An American prison break drama is this week’s offering from the Cornley Drama Society, full of intrigue, excitement and double-cross.
The Cornley Drama Festival Part 1 - A different sort of show this week, as Chris asks each cast member to put on their own performance in order to head off a coup.
The Cornley Drama Festival Part 2 - Continuing last-week's Disaster Festival, The Cornley Drama Society put on four more performances.
