The BBC have confirmed that romantic comedy Starstruck from Rose Matefo will return for a second series.
In February, she told comedian James Nokise on his Eating Fried Chicken In The Shower podcast that when filming was postponed from March 2020 because of coronavirus, “the producer came out of a meeting and was like ‘so, little change of plans, we are shifting all of the filming to October and you are going to write a second series of the show'”.
thank you for your truly lovely words about Starstruck so far. I’m sorry if I haven’t replied, but we started shooting something else this week pic.twitter.com/0cmvLXew2z

Starstruck is now streaming on the BBC iPlayer.
