Olivia Colman To Return For Second Series Of Flowers

Channel 4 has confirmed that Olivia Colman (Broadchurch) and Julian Barratt (The Mighty Boosh) will return for a second six part series of Will Sharpe’s Flowers, in association with US streaming service Seeso.

In series two, Deborah (Olivia Colman) and Maurice (Julian Barratt) are looking at a new era of their marriage and whether they can survive Maurice’s suicide attempt, Deborah’s infidelity, and their grown-up twins’ inheritance of their parents’ emotional foibles.

Meanwhile, the Flowers’ twins Donald (Daniel Rigby) and Amy (Sophia di Martino) are now forging their own futures amongst the fallout of their parent’s complicated love and their own new enterprises. But can they survive the next chapter of romantically and mentally epic challenges in the Flowers household?

Channel 4 Deputy Head of Comedy, Nerys Evans, said: “Covering deeply complex issues like fidelity, mental health, sexuality and fraying family bonds, Will Sharpe’s hilariously awkward and heart-breaking show offers another unmissable look at the Flowers’ messed up world.”

“Will’s scripts and the show’s perfect cast are so brilliant at making you wail with laughter one minute, and well up the next. I couldn’t be more excited for the family’s return to Channel 4.”

Series two of Flowers will begin filming in 2017.
