Josh Thomas Please Like Me to return to ABC
Out comedian Josh Thomas will return to TV screens this August when the second season of his hit TV series Please Like Me airs on the ABC.
Thomas who created, wrote and starred in the critically acclaimed series, has also been commissioned to write a third season by ABC TV in association with US company, Pivot.
Speaking from a press conference in Los Angeles Thomas said; “I’m just thrilled ABC TV and Pivot are proceeding so confidently with Please Like Me. I think it’s such a lovely show. We learnt so much making Season 1 and I think we really stepped it up in Season 2, and will hopefully do the same in Season 3. Our team is just really terrifically good and everything is great and terrific.”
ABC Head of Comedy, Rick Kalowski, said ABC’s third season pickup of Please Like Me before season two even airs was unprecedented, but expected, given the show’s cult status.
“It’s fitting for a show which has become our most watched original ABC2 comedy series, and put Australian TV comedy on the world stage as never before. ABC TV couldn’t be prouder to continue our association with Pivot in the US, or of the new season two, which is a cracker from start to finish.”
Critically acclaimed in both Australia and the US, season one of Please Like Me was heralded as one of the best shows of 2013 by The New Yorker, TIME, Entertainment Weekly and the LA Times.
Pivot will broadcast season two in the US on August 8. ABC2 will air the first episode of season 2, Please Like Me on August 12 at 830pm.
