Showtime Sets Premiere Date for Season 2 of 'Back to Life'

Showtime has today announced the premiere date for the upcoming second season of its original comedy series Back to Life.

The 6-episode second season will launch on Monday, September 13 at 10/9c.

The new season picks up three weeks after the season one finale, and six weeks after Miri leaves prison. She is optimistic about her future. Her probation officer, Janice, has gotten her a trial shift at the supermarket, she and her neighbor Billy have been spending more time together, and she's found her hair crimper. However, Miri's not talking to her mother Caroline after the revelation that she was having an affair with Miri's ex-boyfriend Dom, and she'll need a lot of shifts at the supermarket before she can afford to move out. She's also avoiding her best friend Mandy after learning that her secret affair with Lara's father, John, led to Lara's death all those years ago. Things are about to get a whole lot worse with the arrival in Hythe of Lara's mother, Norah. Still grieving her daughter, it's clear her presence will ensure Miri cannot escape her past.

The comedy stars Daisy Haggard, Geraldine James, Richard Durden, Adeel Akhtar, Jo Martin, Jamie Michie, Christine Bottomley and Liam Williams.

Haggard co-created the series with Laura Solon. They executive produce with Sarah Hammond, Chris Sweeney, Harry Williams and Jack Williams. Two Brothers Pictures produce in association with Showtime and BBC Three.
