Actor, musician and comedian Tim Minchin and Milly Alcock will return as Lucky and Meg in the comedy drama. 

Minchin will once again co-write, star and compose music for the new eight-part series. 

Series one saw the two misfits form an unexpected friendship in the middle of the Australian Outback as Lucky travelled 4000km from Sydney to Perth.

The second series sees the odd pair head for the steamy tropics of Far North Queensland, ready to hit the road and river on a new mission.

Musician and comedian Tim Minchin writes and stars in Upright, a series about the unlikely friendship forged by two misfits in the middle of the Australian Outback.

Upright follows Lucky Flynn (Minchin), a self-destructive yet talented pianist struggling to make ends meet. On discovering that his mother has only days left to live, the estranged son embarks on a 4000km journey across Australia, from Sydney to Perth, armed only with his battered but beloved upright piano.
