Everyone and their ma loved Aisling Bea's TV show, This Way Up.

No, literally. It had something for everyone. Ma's, confused millennials, even secretly emotional men who are too cool to talk about their feelings in public. It tackles everything from mental health to the special bond between two sisters, but just as you're about to shed a tear it'll hit you right in the funny bone with some combative lols. The whole show is a journey, and now it's back!

Writer, producer and star of This Way Up Aisling Bea just shared the trailer for the new season on her insta. She's not allowed reveal the release date for the UK and Ireland just yet (or, in her own words, "they send a gang around with baseball bats to beat me up"), but the trailer has given us everything we need for the mo. Season 2 looks as hilarious and heartwarming as the first instalment, and may we be as bold to say a bit saucy too? We are buzzin for Aisling's uniquely Irish gas-ness that somehow effortlessly translates to American and UK audiences to grace our screens once more.
