Tracey’s Back! Check Out The Trailer For Season 2 Of Chewing Gum
For those of us watching television Stateside, Chewing Gum probably became one of your favorite shows this year after making its debut on Netflix in late October. But the series actually premiered in 2015 on the British TV channel E4. In case you missed the greatness of this six-episode series, it’s focused on Tracey Gordon. She is the virginal daughter of a religious mother who is trying to see more of the world — and have some sex.
Tracey, played by Michaela Coel, who both created and writes the series, ended up winning two BAFTA Awards earlier this year for her work. She took home Best Female Comedy Performance and Breakthrough Talent for writing the comedy. With that much success not only across the pond but a bubbling influence here in the United States, you knew a second season had to be on the way.
The good news is, it’s already done and E4 has released the trailer for it.
I won’t give away everything from Season 1, but I will say that the last time we saw Tracey, she was walking into the sunset with her boyfriend Connor — in her drawls. So where do we find her in Season 2?
According to Shadow and Act, “Season 2 begins with Tracey’s (Coel’s) return to the Pensbourne Estate which doesn’t quite go as she would have liked. Best friend Candice isn’t happy to see her, and mum Joy won’t let her in. But at least she’s back at work at Deepak’s Delectables. Tracey discovers ex-boyfriend Connor is in a new relationship, and goes out of her way to try and fool him into believing that she’s moved on. Connor meanwhile tells a few lies of his own in order to get Tracey to talk about what actually happened between them.”
So while there are some big changes, quite a few things are staying the same, and we hope that includes the laughs. Check out the trailer for Season 2, which premieres on January 12 at 10 p.m. on E4. As for those of us in the U.S., we’ll have to wait a little longer for it to show up on Netflix. If we’re lucky, it will premiere sooner than later in 2017.
