Podcast Adventures is excited to announce a second series of the comedy-noir podcast sitcom Dead Drunk Detective in 2017.
Arfie Mansfield and Kate Oswald will return as scotch-fueled, zombie detective Johnny Stumbles and his long-suffering assistant Betty in the Autumn.
Also returning to the cast will be Leanna Wigginton as Johnny’s sister Melissa and a host of new characters and special appearances from the London improv comedy community.
Writer Brendan Way says he had a blast writing season 2 of the show and is looking forward to experimenting with the weird world he’s created: “The biggest change in the first run had been – SPOILER ALERT – Betty getting a new chair. This time round, I wanted to shake things up. I’ll bring back some old friends, but also introduce new enemies. Let’s get in people from Johnny’s pre-zombie life. OOH! Let’s have Johnny question his entire identity.”
Season 2 has a few surprises in store for Johnny as we find out more about the land of the undead and explore his tricky relationships, all presented with the same relentless pun-a-minute treatment.
Dead Drunk Detective was born when Way was bored one afternoon. Months later it was a fully produced live show and series starring a cast of talented friends. As with the first season, a series of live recordings will take place in a Central London performance space for which a limited number of tickets will be released in September.
Podcast Adventures is a London-based audio network producing podcast titles in collaboration with writers and performers across the UK. They are also behind titles such as Sketch, Please! and Ed and Friends, with another comedy sitcom to be announced later this year.
