David Tennant has hinted that the second season of comedy Staged may not follow the same formula as the first, as a ‘bit of a twist’ is on the way.
Earlier this year, David and his Good Omens co-star Michael Sheen launched a home-based TV show called Staged, in which they play fictionalised versions of themselves as they try to rehearse a play over lockdown.
Filmed over video chat, the six-episode arc also featured their respective partners playing themselves, in addition to Simon Evans as himself and director of the play.
Season two was confirmed in October, with Parks and Recreation star Ben Schwartz joining the cast as the assistant to their agent.
With just days to go until the series launch, David has provided some insight into how the narrative will continue to unfold.
‘It’s the same set up as before,’ the former Doctor Who star said, according to Radio Times.
‘Michael Sheen and I talking rubbish to each other over the internet from our respective homes, with Georgia and Anna, our other halves, keeping us from becoming too self-indulgent, not always successfully.’
However, the plot of the second season won’t simply be a carbon copy of the first.
‘But there is a bit of a twist to it all, which I’m not going to reveal here…’ David added.
The new series will also boast ‘a lot of amazing surprise appearances’ from special guest stars, Michael said.
Considering the first season featured guest appearances from the likes of acting legends Dame Judi Dench and Samuel L Jackson, we have high hopes for who may appear in the upcoming episodes.
In October, David’s wife Georgia shared a glimpse of how their family has been keeping occupied during the coronavirus pandemic, posting a picture of one of their children painting their father’s face.
Georgia is the daughter of actor Peter Davison, who portrayed the fifth incarnation of the Doctor in Doctor Who.
Staged season two will begin on Monday January 4 at 9.45pm on BBC One.
