Writing on Twitter, producer Zoë Rocha said: "Proud to say Series 2 of #Borderline has been commissioned! Couldn't be happier that we get to do it all again with such a talented team! X"
Ralf Little, who is one of the executive producers of the comedy and acts as the show's narrator, tweeted to his followers today: "Hey, I appreciate every compliment you guys offer up, but 'Congratulations on #Borderline' from @rickygervais just now was pretty special."
The recommission confirms Channel 5 is serious about its plans to air more home-grown comedy shows. Borderline is the network's first sitcom since it aired Suburban Shootout and Angelo's - both in conjunction with Paramount Comedy Channel - in 2007.
Ben Frow, Channel 5's Director of Programmes, announced the recommission at the Edinburgh TV Festival today. He said: "The critical reaction to Borderline has been really encouraging, as we begin to build our comedy portfolio."
