We Are Lady Parts gets a second series

Channel 4 award-winning comedy show We Are Lady Parts, about a Muslim all-women punk band, has been commissioned for a second series. This comes hot on the heels of the announcement earlier this month that show creator Nida Manzoor was to receive the Rose d’Or Emerging Talent Award.

Manzoor said: “I feel so incredibly lucky and excited to have the opportunity to make a second series of We Are Lady Parts. I can’t wait to delve back into the world of the band and go deeper into their lives. Expect more high jinks, more music, and more flights of fancy.”

Fiona McDermott, Channel 4 head of comedy said: “We Are Lady Parts is the rallying cry from a fearlessly funny, contemporary and dial-shifting comedy that felt uniquely Channel 4 at its heart.

“The show deftly took big ideas around identity, representation, gender and creativity and wrapped them up in a truly original and hilarious show full of love, romance and sisterly power.”

Surian Fletcher-Jones of Working Title Television, said: “I’m so proud of We Are Lady Parts – for its wit, its inventiveness and its representation – and I’m absolutely thrilled that we’re getting to make another season.

“Nida has got so much to say about contemporary life, and she’s found the perfect vehicle with this show to express her unique and inspiring world view. I can’t wait to share Nida’s vision for season two.”

We can’t wait to find out what’s next for Amina Hussain and her gag reflex, alongside bandmates Saira, Ayesha, Bisma and band manager Momtaz…
