About Starstruck Season 2

Jessie, utilising finger-gunneblunt, dark humour to maintain the upper hand and keep those emotional boundaries firmly in place, while masterfully calling things like they are. Jessie, frantically slamming the figurative Undo button on her big life choice to leave London, is confronted with the reality that, yes, she may have just overlooked a very costly ticket for love.

Meanwhile, Patel gently grabs every heart in the room as Tom, who, amid his high-flying cinematic career, is uncomfortably having a hard time figuring it all out like the rest of us — particularly his connection with Jessie and his own family. Patel’s deadpan comic style and wonderful compassion make every moment charming and real, especially when the primary couple disagrees over anything.

Season 2 will be all about how this ‘relationship’ will look, going forward.

When we last saw Jessie (Matafeo) and Tom (Nikesh Patel), they’d gone through the horrifyingly awkward and lovely whirlwind that is falling in love — especially when one of you is a big movie actor. We had several concerns as the two of them sat in the rear end of the bus on their way to Charing Cross: Will Jessie skip London to see family in New Zealand? Will Tom accept the major opportunity and move to Ireland?

The official synopsis reads: “After having decided to stay and pursue a relationship with him, Jessie must deal with the real-world consequences of her grand gesture.

Following on from Season 1, we’ll explore the consequences of Jessie’s choice to remain in East London and seek a relationship with Tom rather than moving home to New Zealand. Logic warns that this will not be easy!

Aside from that, there’s no indication as to what season two will be about, but we know that there’s going to be lots of romance and laughter.

Season 2 will be comprised of six 30-minute episodes, as was the first.

In a press release, Shane Allen, the BBC’s Director of Comedy, congratulated the programme on its comeback.

The first series of Starstruck came as a joyous breath of fresh air and we can’t wait to see what Rose, Alice and Nic have in store for Jessie and Tom in the next chapter of their story,” he said.
