ABC comedy Fisk returns in October for a new season

ABC has announced that its comedy, Fisk, will return in October for its second season.

The award-winning six-part comedy series premieres Wednesday, October 26 at 9 p.m. on ABC TV and ABC iview.

In 2021, Fisk was the number one in Australia with a local script across all free-to-air networks – created, written and directed by – and starring – one of Australia’s favorite comedians, Kitty Flanagan as Helen Tudor-Fisk.

In addition to Flanagan, the entire protagonist will reprise their roles, including: Julia Zemiro, Marty Sheargold, Aaron Chen, John Gaden and Glenn Butcher.

They are joined this season by comedic stars including; Marg Downey, Denise Scott, Harley Breen, Stephen Curry, Geraldine Hickey, Zindzi Okenyo, Urvi Majumdar, Stephen Gates (from comedy band Tripod), Anthony Sharpe, Shane Bourne, Glenn Robbins, Bessie Holland, Rob Sitch, Deborah Kennedy, Matt Okine, Alex Paps, Loaves Kelly (Aunt Donna), Colin Lane, Anne Edmonds and Tanika Anderson.

Season two finds its normal course at the Gruber & Associates office. Helen’s (Flanagan) social skills haven’t improved, but at least as a suburban wills and estates attorney, she does.

So much so that Roz (Zemiro) and Ray (Sheargold) mistakenly entrust her with the presentation of their regular question-and-answer evening at the local library.

Meanwhile, Ray is shredding for a school reunion and George (Chen) finds himself overworked when Roz starts a new business venture.

At the customer’s, Helen takes on a clown theater troupe, a May/December couple with a new baby, and a mother who sends her two bickering sons a message from beyond the grave.

But the probate efforts are really heightened when a formidable woman steps forward to claim a vaguely worded $10 million bequest from the local crazy cat lady.

Last year, Fisk won the Best Series Award in the Comedies Competition at Europe’s largest TV festival, Series Mania 2021 in Lille, France.
