Della and family returning to C4


Channel 4 has commissioned a second series of Caitlin Moran‘s sitcom Raised by Wolves.

The series will return for six new episodes based on Moran’s own unconventional upbringing with her siblings on a Wolverhampton council estate.

Rebekah Staton (Della), Helen Monks (Germaine), Alexa Davies (Aretha), Philip Jackson (Grampy) will all be returning, alongside the siblings father who is yet to be cast.

Caitlin Moran said: “Our mission from God (copyright The Blues Brothers) continues with series two of Raised by Wolves, in which strong working class women continue to be as weird, unpleasant and amazing as men.”

Adding: “I am mega-stoked we are putting the band back together. This is truly bostin’news. I have assembled the giant box of bananas, the fingerless gloves and the Mad Max: Fury Road soundtrack I will need to get me through the writing process and will now seal myself into the comedy creation bunker. Big up Channel 4!”

Fiona McDermott, a C4 comedy commissioning editor, said: “We are delighted to welcome the wolves back into the Channel 4 den. Della’s brood are one of the most original and refreshingly funny families to be on our screens for a long time, we can’t wait to see what these ‘Midland twats’ get up to in series two.

Raised By Wolves series 2 will begin filming this autumn for transmission on Channel 4 in 2016.
