“Quietly brilliant… Home has pressed its case for tolerance, diversity and kindness.” – Daily Telegraph
The first series followed Sami (Youssef Kerkour), a Syrian immigrant living with Peter (Jones), Katy (Rebekah Staton) and her son John after hiding in their car in Calais. From visiting Stonehenge to learning about cryptic crosswords Sami has adapted to British life, preparing for his interview with the Home Office in order to stay permanently. But did Sami pass the interview?
Producer Adam Tandy added: “We're delighted to start work on a new series of our comedy, especially after the first was so warmly received. Once again Peter, Katy and John will let Sami into their home to sort out his problems, their problems, everyone’s problems."
Fiona McDermott, Head of Comedy at Channel 4, says: “Home is such a special show. It takes on some pretty big, often bewildering issues and makes them accessible, human and incredibly funny. That it manages to be both audacious and tender in the process speaks volumes for the deft talents of Rufus and the whole cast and crew. We couldn’t be prouder to bring this timely and quietly powerful show back.”
