The BBC recently announced that the show would return for a second series after winning Best Scripted Comedy at the BAFTA Television Awards, and Peter Kay taking home the award for Best Male Performance in a Comedy.

The record-breaking first series premiered exclusively on BBC iPlayer in 2015, following colleagues John and Kayleigh, who found themselves united in their journey to work by a company car share scheme.

Peter Kay said: “What a joy to be working on the second series of Car Share with the wonderful Sian Gibson. The success of the first series has been completely overwhelming.”

Sian Gibson said “I’m really excited that Car Share is coming back. We had so much fun making the first series and I can’t wait to be Kayleigh Kitson again.”

Set and filmed in the North West, Car Share remains the most-watched new sitcom since 2011. Series one climaxed with a ‘will they won’t they’ pivotal moment between John and Kayleigh as their chemistry grew and it looked like romance was on the cards. The soundtrack to their friendship (courtesy of fictional local radio station Forever FM) was sealed with a mix CD from Kayleigh to John, but what will become of their blossoming relationship?
