Billie Piper’s hit comedy-drama I Hate Suzie officially renewed for second season

Fans of the comedy-drama I Hate Suzie are in for a treat as the show has officially been renewed for a second season.

Sky has announced that the Billie Piper-fronted series, which the actress created alongside Secret Diary of a Call Girl’s Lucy Prebble, will begin filming new episodes in 2022.

The good news came just a day after I Hate Suzie bagged a coveted nomination for Best Drama Series at the Broadcasting Press Guild Awards.

The series will be up All Creatures Great and Small, I May Destroy You, Normal People and Small Axe – with the winner to be announced on Friday, March 12.

Following its release on Sky Atlantic and NOW TV in August of last year, I Hate Suzie went down a treat with British audiences before making its Stateside debut on HBO Max in November.

In the show, 38-year-old Billie plays a former pop star turned sci-fi actor who is set to get a career boost by being cast as a Disney princess before her life takes a turn when a hacker leaks her naked pictures.

 

Innocent’s Leila Farzad stars Suzie’s close friend and manager Naomi, while The Crown’s Daniel Ings takes on the role of her none-too-pleased husband Cob.

I Hate Suzie immediately had people talking upon its release, with Billie having apparently broken the record for the longest solo sex moment on UK screens, according to reports.

In the fourth episode of the Sky Atlantic series, Suzie is seen pleasuring herself, with The Sun claiming the seven-minute four-second moment is the longest masturbation scene on UK television.

A source told the publication: ‘It’s not often women are shown on telly enjoying themselves, well, solo. So frankly it makes a refreshing change to see such a long and animated scene like this one.

‘Billie co-wrote the series and was determined to show women doing it for themselves.’

‘I didn’t think I had anxiety until seven years ago. I always remembered myself as quite a chilled child, and maybe that was true – my mum says that I was a sort of sunny, happy child,’ she told the publication.

In a separate interview with Glamour, Piper revealed that the script for the first season wasn’t autobiographical, but did draw from elements of her life, including her dealings with anxiety.

Billie continued: ‘But I think I’m just coming to terms with the fact that I actually have quite acute anxiety, and I know I managed that as a kid. Also, nobody was talking about it, so you couldn’t name it, and therefore it can often go unnoticed.’
