News: Filming Starts On Second Series Of Sarah Kendall's Frayed

The second season of the Sky Original comedy series Frayed, written by and starring UK-based Australian comedian Sarah Kendall, has officially commenced filming in Sydney.

In the new 6-part season, we find Sammy (Kendall) and her kids, having made it out of Australia, living in a tiny London flat while she frantically tries to prove that her lawyer, Rufus (Robert Webb), stole her house. Barely able to make ends meet working in ‘exhaust management’ (she’s a secretary in a muffler repair shop), Sammy is desperate to find a way to reclaim her opulent London life.  She must also keep her kids far away from Australia and the truth about what happened to their neighbour.  

Meanwhile back down under in Newcastle, an ambitious cop heads up the missing persons case and simply does not believe Sammy’s neighbour would just disappear.  

With Jim (Ben Mingay), Jean (Kerry Armstrong) and Abby (Alexandra Jensen) trying to keep their secret hidden, and con artist Bev (Doris Younane) lurking on the scene, it’s only a matter of time until Sammy is called back to be a key witness in the case. Also reprising her role from season one is British comedian and actress Diane Morgan (Fiona). 

Joining them this season are Hamish Michael (Rosehaven, Janet King), Jane Hall (Wentworth, Neighbours) and rising talent Emma Harvie as Emily. Matt Passmore (Dan), George Houvardas (Chris), Frazer Hadfield (Lenny) and Maggie Ireland-Jones (Tess) also return. 

Frayed debuted on on Sky in the UK in October 2019. The series was nominated for five AACTA Awards and Kendall also garnered a BAFTA Television Award nomination for Female Performance in a Comedy Programme. 

Creator, writer and star Sarah Kendall says: “I’m so excited to be home making season 2 of Frayed. The last year has been pretty grim, so we’re all really grateful for this opportunity to bring back a lot of these frankly appalling characters.”

Executive Producer for Merman, Clelia Mountford says: “We’re delighted to be working with Sarah, the ABC and Sky to bring Frayed and its wonderfully dark humour back for a second season. Sarah’s bold writing and vibrant characterisation, combined with the cast’s fantastic performances received such deserved acclaim for series one, and we’re excited for audiences to see what’s in store as the trail of destruction continues to unfold.”

Created, and written by, and starring Sarah Kendall, Frayed is produced by Merman Television (Motherland BBC, There She Goes BBC, This Way Up C4/Hulu, Catastrophe C4/Amazon), the production company founded and run by award-winning duo Sharon Horgan and Clelia Mountford, in association with Australia’s Guesswork Television (Rosehaven, Get Krack!n, Please Like Me) and Sky Studios. Produced by Nicole O’Donoghue and directed by Shaun Wilson, the Executive Producers are Clelia Mountford, Sharon Horgan and Kevin Whyte, for ABC, Todd Abbott and for Sky, Tilusha Ghelani.

Frayed Season 2 will film in both Australia and the UK and airs later in 2021 on Sky One.
