Boarders, the new BBC Three drama which airs in the United States on Tubi, is coming back for a second season.

RadioTimes reported on the show’s renewal, writing that series creator and writer Daniel Lawrence Taylor is pleased with how the show has been received.

“The response to the first series has been incredibly inspiring, and I’m thrilled to announce the arrival of our second!” he said in a statement. “What I’ve cherished most about creating this series is showcasing Black experiences on screen and seeing how it resonates with everyone.”

“While race can sometimes divide us, the emotions of feeling different, isolated, or trying to fit in are truly universal,” he continued. “I’m especially excited to collaborate with the cast again; they are all budding superstars, and I’m overjoyed to see them bring my words to life once more! I can’t wait for you to see it!”

The series stars Josh Tedeku, Myles Kamwendo, Jodie Campbell, Aruna Jalloh and Sekou Diaby play urban teens who have been awarded scholarships to a prestigious boarding school. However, they’re only offered the scholarships as a way for the school to change its reputation. The second season finds the teens facing a new headmistress (Niky Wardley) after the school’s prior headmaster (Derek Riddel) gets suspended. The change in leadership means even more challenges for the group of friends. Taylor himself features on the series as the teens’ mentor, Gus.

The first season is currently streaming on Tubi and BBC’s iPlayer.
