Mawaan Rizwan's sitcom Juice is to return to BBC Three for a second series.

Launched in September, Juice follows Jamma, a man who desperately wants to be the centre of attention but his family are constantly stealing his thunder. The comedy co-starred Russell Tovey as Jamma's boyfriend and also featured Rizwan's real-life family members Nabhaan Rizwan and Shahnaz Rizwan as his brother and mother.

The BBC says: "In the upcoming new series everything in Jamma's life is telling him to grow up. But as he tries to get good at love, he's haunted by family, friends and his former self."

Juice has been nominated for a number of awards, and won an Royal Television Society trophy. Mawaan Rizwan is also nominated for Male Performance In A Comedy Programme at this Sunday's BAFTA TV Awards.

Mawaan Rizwan says: "Juice is back baby! I can't wait to dive back into a magical world with magical people once again. Shoutout to everyone who's championed this beautiful bonkers show.... and everyone who hated on the bowl cut."

The comedy is made by Various Artists Ltd. The BBC has also just recommissioned the company's other new comedy, Such Brave Girls created by Kat Sadler.

Commissioner Jon Petrie says: "Mawaan and Kat are two of the funniest new voices in British comedy; in Juice and Such Brave Girls they created completely unique shows that made a real impact and were much-loved by audiences. It's a no brainer to have them back for a second time!"

Phil Clarke from Various Artists Ltd comments: "I'm delighted that the BBC is bringing back Juice and Such Brave Girls from sparkling new comedy talents Mawaan and Kat. Both shows are fresh and highly original with something very funny and contemporary to say."
