Sandylands, the new sitcom set in a seaside resort, is to return for a second series, British Comedy Guide can reveal.
Written by Martin Collins and Alex Finch, the show follows Emily, a woman who returns to her seaside home town after several years of living in London. The series opened with her father, local celebrity arcade owner Les Vegas, going missing in suspicious circumstances.
Natalie Dew plays Emily, with Sanjeev Bhaskar as Les. The cast list also features David Walliams and Sophie Thompson as a pair of oddball B&B owners; Simon Bird as Emily’s potential love-interest, police officer Nathan; and Harriet Webb as Tina, Emily’s old school friend and local tour guide.
The scripts for the new episodes have already been written, BCG understands. The series is shot in Weston-super-Mare, and production company King Bert are expected to begin location filming later in the year, lockdown restrictions permitting.
The recommission has yet to be officially announced, and UKTV made no comment when approached by British Comedy Guide.
