ITV sitcom Kate and Koji will return for a second series.
The new six-part series will see the return of Kate (Brenda Blethyn) and Koji, who will now be played by Okorie Chukwu as he takes over the role from Jimmy Akingbola.
Blake Harrison and Barbara Flynn will reprise their roles as ‘Medium’ and Councillor Bone.
Written and created by Guy Jenkin and Andy Hamilton, the comedy tells the story of an unlikely friendship between a working-class woman who owns a café near the seaside and an asylum-seeking African doctor.
Production on the second series was delayed due to the Covid-19 pandemic but can now move forward.
Brenda Blethyn commented: “I'm so pleased Kate will be welcoming her customers back into the caff. Even the postman! I’ve missed them. So looking forward to donning the gingham apron and welcoming Okorie to our Kate and Koji family.”
Okorie Chukwu said: “I’m excited to step into the role of Koji and I can’t wait to get working with this brilliant cast of actors.”
