Channel 4 has confirmed new casting for the second series of Hullraisers.

Created by Lucy Beaumont based on Israeli comedy Little Mom and set in her native Hull, Series 2 is written by Caroline Moran and Anne Marie O'Connor.

Joining the starring trio of Leah Brotherhead, Sinead Matthews and Taj Atwal in the second series are newcomers Tom Bennett (PhoneShop) and Sam Swainsbury (Mum).

Other returning cast members include Perry Fitzpatrick as Craig and Felicity Montagu as his mum; Shobna Gulati as Nima; Yanick Ghanty as Dane; and Natalie Davies as Natalie.

Bennett plays John Fox, the new love interest for Craig's mum Gloria (Felicity Montagu). The pair could not be more perfectly suited despite the 15-year age gap but how will Craig deal with this new father figure in his life? Sam Swainsbury takes on the role of Pickles, Rana's new police partner. The pair are chalk and cheese in a standard issue police car, but will these two opposites eventually attract?

Hannah Farrell and Faye Ward, the executive producers of Hullraisers say: "We are so thrilled to be bringing back Hullraisers with Channel 4, adding some new exciting faces to our brilliant core cast. Alongside our award nominated trio of Leah Brotherhead, Sinead Matthews, and Taj Atwal, we welcome Tom Bennett and Sam Swainsbury, playing two brilliant new characters. We can't wait for audiences to join us for another series of outrageous laughs and Hullian mayhem."

Hullraisers is made by Fable Pictures.
