LONDON — Netflix has commissioned and will debut globally season two of the Netflix original series “Scrotal Recall,” following a deal with BBC Worldwide North America. Clerkenwell Films will produce the new season exclusively for Netflix with series stars Johnny Flynn, Antonia Thomas and Daniel Ings all returning to the romantic comedy. Season two will consist of eight episodes. Season one is now streaming on Netflix in the U.S. and Canada, and will be available globally later this year.
In season one of “Scrotal Recall,” viewers followed the exploits of hapless twentysomething Dylan Witter (Flynn) who, after receiving a troubling diagnosis, resolves to contact everyone he’s ever slept with to tell them the news. Each episode focuses on Dylan reaching out to a different girl from his past, which gives him the opportunity to look back on his neurotic mess of a love life and figure out where it all went wrong — all the while missing his most obvious hope at true love that has been under his nose the whole time. Joining him on this trip down memory lane are best friend Evie (Thomas), and ladies’ man Luke (Ings), who’ve been by Dylan’s side for years, picking up the pieces after each romantic car crash.
Series creator Tom Edge returns as writer for season two and serves as executive producer along with Murray Ferguson, Andy Baker and Ed Macdonald. “Scrotal Recall” is produced by Clerkenwell Films for Netflix; the deal was brokered by Jemma Adkins, SVP, scripted sales and co-productions, on behalf of BBC Worldwide North America.
Matt Forde, executive VP, content production, sales and distribution, BBC Worldwide North America, said: “BBC Worldwide North America and Netflix have had a longstanding and successful relationship. We brought ‘Scrotal Recall’ to Netflix as it is typical of the distinctive and original programming they champion and bring to their viewers. Who can’t love Dylan and his band of dysfunctional twentysomething friends as they look for life’s answers with a mix of partying and bad mistakes.”
Murray Ferguson, chief executive of Clerkenwell Films, said: “After such a warm response to season one, it’s great to be working with Netflix and BBC Worldwide to bring back Dylan, Evie, Luke and many of the other great characters for another series of ‘Scrotal Recall’ on Netflix.”
