Channel 4 has renewed their comedy series Stath Lets Flats for a second season. The renewal, which is for a further six episodes, comes more than five months after the show’s first season wrapped its run on the channel. Season two is expected to premiere later this year.
Created by Jamie Demetriou and Robert Popper, Stath Lets Flats follows the titular character, an incompetent lettings agent, on his day to day antics at ‘Michael & Eagle Lettings’, a dodgy London lettings agency run by Stath’s father. The series is produced by Roughcut TV and stars Jamie Demetriou, Katy Wix, Christos Stergioglou, Natasia Demetriou, Dustin Demri-Burns, Alistair Roberts and Tom Stourton.
In the show’s second season, having been denied the manager’s position by his own father, Vasos, Stath – along with Carole and the rest of the team – is forced to work under his arch rival Julian – and re-think his life goals. His sister Sophie is also searching for a new direction after failing at Dance College and publicly denying her feelings for Al.
Jamie Demetriou is penning the scripts for season two, with Robert Popper serving as the script editor. The executive producers are Ash Atalla and Jamie Demetriou. Seb Barwell is the series producer. Season two will be overseen for Channel 4 by Commissioning Editors Jack Bayles and Jon Petrie.
“We did originally say no to this, but he just kept turning up, trying to get into the building”, said Channel 4’s Head of Comedy Fiona McDermott, who commissioned the show’s second season. “Sometimes it’s just easier to give in isn’t it? In all seriousness, we’re thrilled to back Jamie and this gem of a show again.”
While series co-creator and star Jamie Demetriou added: “Lovely to have been given a series 2, mate. Thank you Channel 4 for the ongoing support and faith, and thank you everyone who worked on it. I would formally like to announce that series 2 MIGHT be about Stath and Peter Andre trying to make it in Miami.”
