The critically acclaimed international success, which was developed, written, and starred award-winning comedian Matafeo, is due to return to television in February 2022 on a new and better BBC Three channel.
Last year, the British comedy Starstruck came to both BBC and HBO Max and quickly became one of the most critically acclaimed new comedies of 2021. Now, fans have a first look at the next season of the show which is due to premiere next month on BBC Three, with an HBO Max date yet to be confirmed.
The new first-look image from Season 2 sees Jessie, played by series creator and co-writer Rose Matafeo, and Tom, played by Nikesh Patel (Hulu’s Four Weddings And A Funeral), as they brush their teeth together with some visible tension between them. Starstruck follows a millennial (Matafeo) living in East London working various dead-end jobs who ends up romantically involved with a famous movie star (Patel) after the two have a one-night stand on New Year’s Eve. The new season is set to pick up where the first left off, with Jessie having to deal with the real-world consequences of choosing to stay in London to pursue a relationship with Tom.
Along with Matafeo and Patel, the new season will include Minnie Driver (Modern Love) reprising her role as Tom’s agent Cath. In terms of new additions to the upcoming season, Russell Tovey (Years And Years) will join the cast in a currently unknown role.Source: Collider
