Brown is the New Black

Press release time!

The lady in brown returns as cameras roll again on award-winning, smash hit ABC comedy Fisk

The ABC is thrilled to announce filming has commenced on the second 6-part season of Fisk – ABC TV’s number one series of 2021.  The award-winning and publicly adored comedy series is created, written and directed by – and starring – one of Australia’s favourite comedians, Kitty Flanagan.

Along with Flanagan starring as Helen Tudor-Fisk, reprising their much-loved roles are Julia Zemiro and Marty Sheargold as solicitor siblings Roz & Ray Gruber, and Aaron Chen as everyone’s favourite probate clerk/webmaster, George. They’re set to be joined by a cavalcade of Australia’s funniest performers in guest roles as we return to the offices of suburban wills and probate law firm, Gruber and Associates.

With Roz stepping aside to start her own mediation business (within the Gruber offices) Helen is determined to take on a more senior role at Gruber & Associates.  However, Helen’s grand vision to become partner looks set to come unstuck when she’s featured in a current affair show hit piece, and she has to repair her damaged reputation.

Internationally, Fisk won Series Mania 2021 – Best Series – Comedy Competition as well as taking home two AACTA Awards for Best Narrative Comedy Series and Best Comedy Performer for Kitty Flanagan. It also won the Screen Producers Award for Best Comedy Series, and is nominated for the 2022 TV Week Logies for Most Popular Comedy Series and Most Popular Actress (Kitty Flanagan).

Kitty Flanagan says “So excited to be putting back on the brown suit again as we get ready to shoot Fisk season 2. The Gruber’s are back, Roz’s hair is back and of course everyone’s favourite webmaster is back too! Here’s hoping I remember how to do acting!”

ABC Head of Comedy, Todd Abbott says “Fisk was the Australian TV sensation of 2021, which was no surprise given the sensational team of talented humans who bring it to life. Like more than two million other viewers, I cannot wait to devour another season of this joyous, sharp, laugh-out-loud comedy.”

Fisk season 2 will air later in 2022 on ABC TV and ABC iview

Just to confirm the obvious, this is good news. Fisk was (and by the looks of things, still is) the only ABC comedy in recent years to actually be a comedy and not just a quirky drama with sarcastic dialogue.

Sure, we still have questions. Is “publicly adored” the new “critically acclaimed”? Where exactly did that “more than two million viewers” figure come from? Seriously, that seems a little high unless it’s some dubious “clicks equals views” metric.

But any way you slice it, having Fisk back in 2022 is the kind of win we’re happy to take… even if the press release calls it “joyous”.
