Alan Carr’s sitcom recommissioned for season 2

OHMYGOSSIP — Alan Carr’s sitcom has been re-commissioned for a second series – even though the first season is yet to air on ITV1.
The ‘Chatty Man’ host, 47, wrote ‘Changing Ends’, which follows his life as the gay son of a “tough-talking” football manager struggling to find himself in the Midlands.
The show launched on ITVX in June, and is due to be released on ITV1 in early 2024.
ITV bosses are said to have been so pleased with the reception to the sitcom earlier in the year, they have greenlit a second series.
A source told The Sun newspaper’s TV Biz column: “It’s very unusual for TV chiefs to green light a second series without fully testing a first but the reception to Changing Ends on ITVX was so overwhelmingly positive, they know they’re on to a winner.”
The next series, penned by the comedian and produced by the studio behind ‘Gavin and Stacey’ and ‘Alan Partridge’, is due to commence filming early next year, with an expected release on ITV’s streaming platform in the summer.
The insider added: “ITVX is really making its mark for brilliant original scripted comedy and there’s much more to come in 2024.”
While the show has been going from strength to strength, Alan admitted he disliked the dismissive attitude some people had about the programme before it had even released.
He told The Guardian newspaper: “The ridiculous thing is, you say to people, ‘Oh, I’m writing a sitcom based on my life, where my dad’s like a northern, tough-talking football manager and his son’s camp as a row of tents’ and they say, ‘Oh, that writes itself.’
“It does not write itself. You have to put in a lot of effort.
“My dad found it incredibly sad. Which is not what you want to hear when you’ve made a sitcom.”
