ITV2 has renewed Tricked, the magic format fronted by magician Ben Hanlin, for a second season.
The youth skewing channel has ordered a further six episodes of the series, which follows Hanlin as he tricks unsuspecting members of the public, from ITV Studios.
The renewal follow the successful launch of Tricked late last year, with the series averaging just shy of 1 million viewers across its run. The show’s second season was ordered by Anjela Jain, Director of Digital Channels & Acquisitions, and commissioned by ITV’s Entertainment Commissioning Editor Kate Maddigan.
“The first series of Tricked showed the versatility and enduring appeal of magic and Ben’s hidden camera stunts have paved the way for a new breed of magic shows”, said Jain. “The second series will see Ben performing even bigger and more audacious tricks on unsuspecting members of the public and famous faces alike.”
