It also stars Demetriou’s real-life sister Natasia Demetriou, who is also employed at the family firm on what appears to be continual work experience.
The second series will also see a return for Katy Wix who will reprise her role as Stath’s infuriatingly competent colleague Carole, with Alastair Roberts as his more amenable colleague, Al.
The action will pick up from where we left it at the end of series one with Stath having been denied the manager’s position by his own father.
In series two he and the rest of the team will be forced to work under his arch rival Julian (Dustin Demri-Burns) – and re-think his life goals. Sophie will be searching for a new direction after failing at Dance College and publicly denying her feelings for Al.
Fiona McDermott, Head of Comedy at Channel 4, said: “We did originally say no to this, but he just kept turning up, trying to get into the building. Sometimes it’s just easier to give in isn’t it? In all seriousness, we’re thrilled to back Jamie and this gem of a show again.”
Ash Atalla, the managing director of Roughcut TV which makes the show, added: “So happy to be going again on Stath Lets Flats. Jamie is a star. And we’ve all felt the pain of terrible flat viewings, so this is our revenge.”
Jamie Demetriou said: “Lovely to have been given a series 2, mate. Thank you Channel 4 for the ongoing support and faith, and thank you everyone who worked on it. I would formally like to announce that series 2 MIGHT be about Stath and Peter Andre trying to make it in Miami.”
Stath Lets Flats series 2 will air on Channel 4 in 2019
