GameFace season 2: When does GameFace start? How many episodes?
GameFace is a British sitcom created by, written by and starring Roisin Conaty, which is finally returning for another series on Channel 4. The show follows Marcella (played by Conaty) as she deals with a number of obstacles, romantic liaisons and tries to finally pass her driving test. The star recently revealed everything you need to know about series two.
When does GameFace start on Channel 4?
GameFace series two has long been hoped for by viewers of the sitcom who fell in love with Conaty’s Marcella.
The pilot of the show first aired back in 2014 on Channel 4 and was finally picked up as series in 2017 on E4.
Now, the sitcom is returning to our screens with a brand new series back where it started on Channel 4.
The show will begin tonight (July 17) at 10pm on the channel as part of a new wave of comedy this summer.
Speaking to media including Express.co.uk, Conaty said she felt some pressure coming back for another series of the comedy.
She said: “I felt pressure because I had to write a second season.”
This pressure also came from the move to Channel 4 from E4, where the last series was shown.
She added: “It feels a bit more exposing. My mum will watch it, she doesn’t know what E4 is. She does call the show FaceTime as well.”
The latest series will pick up where we left off with Marcella as she attempts to find work as an actress and deal with the fall-out of her previous relationship.
Fans will also be eager to see whether the character will finally pass her driving test when the series returns to our screens.
How many episodes are there in GameFace season 2?
GameFace series two will feature another six episodes of the sitcom.
Following the same pattern as season one, each episode will run in a 35-minute slot.
The episodes will air on Wednesday evenings at 10pm every week on Channel 4.
Speaking about the tone of the new series, Conaty added that she tried to write for emotion as well as laughs in the show.
She said: “The thing I’ve always wanted to do with GameFace is to go for belly laughs but it has to feel like you’re emotionally invested in the characters.
“As a stand-up it feels really weird to kill a big joke but sometimes those are the choices you have to make.”
As a result, the show juggles the hilarity of Marcella attempting to find work and deal with her ex-boyfriend’s failing marriage.
This comes at the same time as her romance is growing with her driving instructor Jon (Damien Molony).
Conaty added: “I wanted to write something that people even at the end of the episode are invested in the storyline.
“I just wrote a kind of show I like to watch.”
GameFace series 2 begins tonight (July 14) at 10pm on Channel 4.
