'Hebburn' to return for second series, Christmas special on BBC Two

Hebburn has been recommissioned by BBC Two.

The comedy series will return later this year for a new six-part series and a Christmas special.

Created by writer/actor Jason Cook and loosely based on his own experiences, Hebburn stars Chris Ramsey as Jack, a lad from the North East who has secretly married his middle-class, Jewish girlfriend Sarah (Kimberley Nixon).

The first series concluded with the pair's second, sham wedding, which was interrupted when Jack's father Joe (Jim Moir) suffered a stroke.

"I'm obviously proper over the moon about the second series," said Cook. "Series one was so well received that we always had hopes of getting recommissioned but now it's real! Having a Christmas special really is the icing on the cake; I got quite giddy when I was told we'd got that."

Series two of Hebburn will enter production in the summer and will air in late 2013, with Ideal's Graham Duff again scripting the new episodes alongside Cook, Henry Normal and Lindsay Hughes of Baby Cow.
