E4 has renewed its drama series My Mad Fat Diary for a second season of 6 episodes, which is set to air in 2014. Production on season 2 is set to commence this summer.
Produced by Tiger Aspect Productions, My Mad Fat Diary takes an honest look at teenage life from the perspective of Rae Earl, a funny, music-mad 16-year-old who, despite an eccentric mother and her own body image and mental health issues, has a huge lust for life, love and trying to get laid. The series stars Sharon Rooney, Ciara Baxendale, Dan Cohen, Jodie Comer, Jordan Murphy and Nico Mirallegro. Tom Bidwell will return as showrunner and executive producer on the new season.
Sophie Gardiner , Channel 4’s Commissioning Editor for Drama, said: “Thanks to Tom Bidwell’s funny and insightful writing, and Sharon Rooney’s stand-out performance as the great Rae Earl, My Mad Fat Diary has captured the hearts of the E4 audience, and we are delighted that the show is returning to E4.”
