'The Larkins' is returning for a second series.

Bradley Walsh and Joanna Scanlan will reprise their roles as Pop and Ma Larkin in the upcoming instalment of the reboot of the hit 90s programme ‘The Darling Buds of May’.

After just one series portraying Mariette Charlton - who was played by Catherine Zeta-Jones in the original show - Sabrina Bartlett will be replaced by Joelle Rae as the eldest Larkin daughter.

A new family, the Jerebohms, are set to be introduced and soon come to blows with the Larkins.

'Taskmaster' star Morgana Robinson is set to play the mother, Pinkie, while 'Four Weddings and a Funeral' actor Hector Bateman-Harden will portray her son Gilbert and Lucy Allix is her daughter Blanche.

The second series will also see Reverend Candy, played by Maxim Ays, arrive in the village, who Primrose Larkin (Lydia Page) falls head-over-heels for.

The returning cast includes Tok Stephen as Cedric 'Charley' Charlton, Peter Davison (the Vicar), Kriss Dosanjh (Brigadier), Amelia Bullmore (Miss Edith Pilchester) and Seeta Indrani (Miss Chand).

Plus, Robert Bathurst (Johnny Delamere), Francesca Wilson Waterworth (Libby Fothergill), Barney Walsh (PC Harness), Tony Gardner (Alec Norman), and Selina Griffiths (Norma Norman).

And Liam Middleton (Montgomery Larkin), Lola Shepelev (Victoria Larkin), Summer Miller (Zinnia Larkin) and Sienna Miller (Petunia Larkin).

Just like the 2021 series, season two will also be a six-parter.

Andy De Emmony will direct once again and filming is set to take place this summer.
