Sorry, I Didn't Know, the ITV panel show centred around Black history topics, is to return for a second series.

The channel confirms: "Jimmy Akingbola will return to host the new series which will air in October on ITV and ITV Hub, as part of ITV's Black History Month celebrations. Chizzy Akudolu and Judi Love will also be back as the team leaders."

Launched as an ITV2 pilot in 2016, Sorry, I Didn't Know became an ITV series in October 2020. The four-part run welcomed guests including Colin Salmon, Angie Le Mar, Tom Allen and Russell Kane.

To coincide with the commission, an opportunity has been opened to find two new writers to join the show's team. The competition is open to all new writers, with the organisers saying "Whether you've written for TV before or not, have an agent or don't, it really doesn't matter." How to apply

ITV commissioner Joe Mace says: "We're very excited to have SIDK return for a second series. After last year's successful debut, we've expanded the show to 5 episodes and can't wait to welcome new writers onto the team."

Sorry, I Didn't Know was created by Fraser Ayres and Minnie Ayres, via their production company TriForce Productions. In an October 2020 interview with BCG Pro they spoke about the importance of having diverse stars and crews on TV shows, and how TriForce Productions is "working with over 40 production companies and organisations to help them hire more inclusively."
