Trigger Happy, the new online version of Trigger Happy TV, is to return to Channel 4's video platform All 4 for a second series.

Star Dom Joly confirms: "The new Trigger Happy will be all-new characters and outrageous set-pieces while waging war on modern life."

Trade magazine Broadcast reports that Channel 4 has ordered 11 new episodes, each 8 minutes long, from Spirit Media and Joly's production company Shady Cabal.

Trigger Happy launched on All 4 last year bringing the format back after more than a decade break. The short episodes mixed together some of the format's trademark hidden camera stunts with new characters including an angry cyclist, a photobomber and a man who vapes too much.

The series generated over 1 million views on All 4, while a Christmas special made for Channel 4 featuring highlights from the new episodes was watched by 800,000.

Talking about production on the new series, Executive Producer Matt Campion says: "We've spent the past few months developing lots of great new ideas and characters for this series."

Series 1 of Trigger Happy is still available to watch on All 4
