The Emily Atack Show will be back for another round of unfiltered comedy as ITV has confirmed that the show will return for a second series.

Actress, comedian and writer Emily debuted her comedy sketch show, which combines stand-up routines with sketches and impressions, in November 2020, with each episode tackling a different topic relevant to young women, such as dating, image and growing up.

ITV2 has now revealed that the show, which achieved the biggest audience for a female-led stand-up show in 2020, will be coming back for more.

The new series will see Emily bring us more hilarious impressions, having previously treated us to impersonations of This Morning presenter Holly Willoughby, Loose Women's Stacey Solomon and her Celebrity Juice co-star Keith Lemon. She will also have fresh stand-up material up her sleeve.

The second series will consist of six 45-minute episodes and will cover more themes close to Emily's heart.

"I had the best time making and filming this series," she said of the show's renewal. "It was the stuff of dreams and I am ecstatic to get to do it again.

"I have so many more sketches and impressions that I can't wait to share with the viewers, my family on the other hand may want to cover their ears (again). If they thought the last series was bum clenchingly raucous, wait until they see this series. It's going to be a hoot."

Head of ITV's Digital Channels, Paul Mortimer, called Emily an "exceptional talent", saying that her "versatility as a comedy actress and hilariously self-deprecating sense of humour resonated with our viewers".

Andy Charles Smith, the Executive Producer for the show's production company Monkey, added: "We're beyond thrilled to make another run of The Emily Atack Show. Working with Emily is a total joy, and a laugh a minute. We can't wait to get back in a room with her and our brilliant writers to see what she'll surprise, delight and shock us with next!"
