Disney has announced some new casting details for the second season of the British Disney+ Original series, “Extraordinary”, which is going to be returning in early 2024.
Season two picks up where season one spectacularly left off. Ten years ago, everyone over the age of 18 got their superpower. Season one sees Jen, a painfully self-aware 25-year-old woman, still waiting to get hers. She’d take anything at this point. Adrift in a big, confusing world and armed with nothing but a bit of hope, a lot of desperation and her flatmates, Jen begins her journey to find her maybe-superpower. But in doing so, she might discover the joy of being just kind of ok.
“Extraordinary” is led by a cast of rising UK and Irish talent, including Máiréad Tyers (Jen), Sofia Oxenham (Carrie), Bilal Hasna (Kash), and Luke Rollason (Jizzlord). Additional cast members include Siobhán McSweeney (Jen’s mum, Mary) and Robbie Gee (Jen’s stepdad, Ian), who will all be returning for Season 2.
It has been revealed at the Edinburgh TV Festival that Julian Barratt (The Mighty Boosh) as George, Jen’s power coach, Rosa Robson (Buffering) who plays Nora, someone from Jizzlord’s past, Kwaku Mills (The Trouble with Jessica) as Clark, Carrie’s new work colleague; and Derek Jacobi (Doctor Who), who will voice a cameo role, have joined the cast for the second season.
The show has been written by series creator Emma Moran, a stand-out debut writer with an utterly distinctive voice. Toby McDonald will return to direct to kick off the season and Jennifer Sheridan returns for block two. This is a fresh, innovative comedy about being young and finding your feet in a confusing world, when all you’ll ever be is ‘ordinary’. Filming on the second season has recently wrapped.
“Extraordinary” is executive produced by Sally Woodward Gentle, Lee Morris and Charles Dawson for Sid Gentle Films, the production company behind “Killing Eve”. The series is executive produced by Johanna Devereaux, Vice President, Scripted Content for Disney+ and Emma Moran. Series producer is Charlie Palmer with Abíólá Rufai-Awójídé as producer.
The first season of “Extraordinary” is available to stream on Hulu in the United States and on Disney+ around the world.
