Yorkshire has become quite the fascination for viewers with more and more Yorkshire-based programmes hitting our screens. From the traditional look at Yorkshire’s countryside with The Yorkshire Vet, Our Yorkshire Farm and the reboot of All Creatures Great and Small to the towns and city life with programmes like Akley Bridge. Well, Channel 4 has released the trailer for the second series brilliantly named Hullraisers based in Hull,
Hull’s own Lucy Beaumont, known for ‘Meet the Richardsons’ with comedian Jon Richardson and more recently the latest series of Taskmaster has written the new series with Ann-Marie O’Connor of ‘Trollied’ and Caroline Moran and is produced by Fable Pictures who brought us Channel 5’s ‘Anne Boleyn’.
In the new video trailer we see, Leah Brotherhead’s character, Toni, undergoes a tumultuous emotional journey when asked by Perry Fitzpatrick’s Craig to marry him, as she perceives themselves to still embody a sense of youthfulness and unrestrained freedom.
Simultaneously, we are presented with fresh perspectives on Sinead Matthews’s Paula and Taj Atwal’s Rana. Paula finds herself in a tense situation with her husband Dane (played by Yanick Ghanty) regarding intimacy, while Rana grapples with a distressing revelation about menopause, delivered to her in a blunt and unsettling manner by her mother, Nima (portrayed by Shobna Gulati).
Executive producers Hannah Farrell and Faye Ward said: “We are so thrilled to be bringing back Hullraisers with Channel 4, adding some new exciting faces to our brilliant core cast.
“Alongside our award nominated trio of Leah Brotherhead, Sinead Matthews and Taj Atwal, we welcome Tom Bennett and Sam Swainsbury, playing two brilliant new characters. We can’t wait for audiences to join us for another series of outrageous laughs and Hullian mayhem.”
Hullraisers series two is back on our screens on the 9th November at 10pm on Channel 4. You can watch the previous series via All4 here.
