AU News: Misfits S2, Friday Night Lights S1, Miranda Coming to ABC2

A day after the Green Guide sung the praises of the “multichannels”, the ABC2 have made a slew of announcements letting people know why these channels have enjoyed a surge in popularity.

Over the next few months, people will be able to see some acclaimed dramas and comedies on ABC2. Some of them have aired before on different networks, but some are airing right from the beginning, allowing people to discover some real gems.

On Friday July 18 at 8:00pm, the second series of BBC comedy Miranda will premiere. Though it has received a somewhat mixed response, it is worth a look. The second series consists of six episodes.

From Friday July 29 at 8:30pm you will be able to catch Friday Night Lights right from the beginning. It has previously aired on Channel Ten in very late timeslots, so it is good to see it get a primetime run. It has recently wrapped up in the US after five seasons, with its fifth season airing on NBC.

Also on from Friday July 29 but at 9:30pm, the acclaimed British series Misfits will air from Season 2, forming a nice double-act.

And these are, of course, in addition to the great titles currently airing on ABC2 including Arrested Development and The Tudors.
