Student housemates JP, Josie, Kingsley, Vod, Oregon and Howard will return to Channel 4 for series two of university sitcom Fresh Meat on Tuesday 9 October, RadioTimes.com has learned.
And the Bafta-nominated comedy starring Jack Whitehall, Joe Thomas, Kimberley Nixon, Greg McHugh, Zawe Ashton and Charlotte Ritchie also adds a new face to the already eclectic mix of the student house.
“There is a new arrival in the house this term – ‘a foreigner’ to mess with their vibe,” says executive producer Judy Counihan, adding: “Kingsley has a new girlfriend who happens to be Josie’s best friend, Vod has to get a job, Oregon finds true love and Howard and JP discover true friendship.”
Meanwhile, fans who fancy a glimpse of JP’s Google search history, or a sneak peek at Josie’s emails, should prepare to log on to Fresh Meat House following the first episode of the new series.
Launching immediately afterwards at www.channel4.com/freshmeathouse, the website will give fans the chance to immerse themselves in the university houseshare experience, letting them explore the student’s squalid bedrooms for sordid insights into their lives.
It also aims to offer “genuine advice and support” to real-life students through interactive online tools such as Josie’s collection of Student Union leaflets, Vod’s spectacularly skewed budget calculator and weekly advice from morose counsellor Nadine.
