The second season of Bad Move will premiere on Wednesday September 19th at 8pm, it has been announced.
Created by Jack Dee and Pete Sinclair, Bad Move follows Steve and Nicky, a married couple who are both on their second marriages and have decided that moving to the countryside from the city is the answer to all their dreams. The comedy series is produced by Open Mike Productions and stars Jack Dee, Kerry Godliman, Miles Jupp, Manjinder Virk, Seann Walsh, Philip Jackson, Sue Vincent, George Somner and Thelma Ruby. In addition to a six episode second season, ITV has also commissioned a Christmas special to air later this year.
In the show’s second season, the rose-tinted fantasy of an idyllic country lifestyle proves to be further away than ever from Nicky and Steve. Their crumbling wreck of a house continues to throw problems at them – they have to deal with everything from an infestation of moths to a septic tank that’s ‘backing up’ as Ken charmingly puts it. Nicky and Steve’s efforts to get on with the villagers fare no better. A charity dine-off with Matt and Meena ends in disaster, and when Ken is made President of the Garthdale Bowls Club, Steve’s attempts to ingratiate himself backfire spectacularly. Even when they find themselves on the same side as the rest of the village for an anti-fracking campaign, an unexpected development presents Nicky and Steve with a major dilemma. And Steve is further put to the test when he is chosen to play a key role in The Lantern Man Festival – an annual village tradition, the sinister origins of which are lost in the mists of time.
