“I feel so incredibly lucky and excited to have the opportunity to make a second series of We Are Lady Parts,” Nida Manzoor, the show’s writer, creator and director said in a statement.

“I can’t wait to delve back into the world of the band and go deeper into their lives. Expect more high jinks, more music, and more flights of fancy. SPARTA!”

Channel 4’s Head of Comedy Fiona McDermott added: “We Are Lady Parts is the rallying cry from a fearlessly funny, contemporary and dial-shifting comedy that felt uniquely Channel 4 at its heart.

The show deftly took big ideas around identity, representation, gender and creativity and wrapped them up in a truly original and hilarious show full of love, romance and sisterly power.”
