Season 1 followed a religious Mancunian family led by Bird, who starred with Death in Paradise‘s Kate O’Flynn as David and Fiona Lewis. They managed modern life with their two children, Rachel, 17, and Aaron, 12, while preparing for Armageddon.
“Jaded by the collapse of her university dreams (and 40 miserable days of ‘penance’), Rachel’s journey to independence will face new obstacles as old family secrets come to light,” according to the official season 2 synopsis.
“Meanwhile, Fiona’s (Kate O’Flynn) world will be turned on its head when she’s brought face-to-face with someone from her past that she’s desperate to forget. Aaron (Harry Connor) will unleash his inner Moses against the ‘snake’ at the top of the Chapter in a revolutionary bid to drag The Order into the present day. Finally, David (Simon Bird), disastrously, will decide to be a ‘good Dad’. He’ll also have to deal with an unprecedented new experience: a woman who’s earnestly interested in him.”
Production for the second season of Everyone Else Burns is slated to commence next year though there has been no premiere date set.
“I’m elated that the Lewis family have (so far) survived eternal damnation for long enough in order to deliver another series of the excellent Everyone Else Burns for Channel 4 viewers. I’m very grateful to the brilliant minds of Oli and Dillon and the whole team at Jax Media and Universal International Studios and we can’t wait to see what’s in store when series two hits our screens,” stated Channel 4 Commissioning Editor Laura Riseam.
President of Universal International Studios, Beatrice Springborn commented: “Everyone Else Burns is a divine comedy full of heart and wit that proves even in chaos, we can all find comedic salvation. With our partners at Jax Media and Channel 4, we can’t wait for audiences to fall in love again with the world Dillon and Oliver have so brilliantly created.”
