Channel 4 has ordered a second series of Bridget Christie’s comedy The Change, produced by Expectation.

Christie created, writes and stars in the BAFTA-nominated show; earlier this year, the first series also won her the Debut Writer award at the New Voice Awards 2024.

Christie said of the recommission: “What??? I’ve got a SECOND series?! What was the first one about?”

Morwenna Gordon, executive producer, Expectation, added: “Bridget has created something very special in The Change, with Linda and her ‘coming of age’ story with a twist. From stacking the dishwasher and timing her chores, to taking off on a Triumph, climbing trees and being crowned an Eel Queen, the show puts too-often invisible, middle-aged women squarely in the spotlight – in motorbike leathers and a headdress – and for that we are eternally grateful!

“So, we are delighted to be bringing it back to Channel 4 for a second series to let Linda continue her journey.”

Charlie Perkins, head of comedy, Channel 4 said, “Of course soon after the Spring Equinox feels like the perfect time to celebrate the return of The Change to Channel 4. The critical and cultural response to series one was special; celebrating a distinctive, artistic, and uniquely funny take on subject matter we hadn’t seen reflected in comedy before.

“We’re looking forward to being back with Bridget, Expectation and the eels in The Forest Of Dean.”

The Change Series Two is executive produced by Christie, Nerys Evans and Gordon; the producer is Lisa Mitchell.
