Channel 4's 'Derek' Recommissioned for Second Series!

Ricky Gervais's Derek has been given a second series order by Channel 4!

The retirement home based sitcom will return for 6 additional 30 minute episodes following a successful first run that notched up a weekly consolidated average of 2.1 million viewers.

Phil Clarke, C4's Head of Comedy:
"I am delighted that Derek is coming back for a second run on Channel 4. It's an original comic vision, brave, funny and touching, with a star performance at its heart. It has already garnered a loyal following."

Ricky Gervais:
"Derek is probably my favourite thing of everything I've done, so I can't wait to start thinking up some new adventures for the gang."

Derek initially attracted controversy following claims that the program mocked the disabled.

It didn't!

... we don't think so, anyway!
