Back, Season 2 | Uncensored Trailer

EXCLUSIVE PREMIERE

Following an acclaimed first series, the delightfully sharp Back is back. After a lengthy spell in the Lyneham Abbey Wellness Centre, Stephen (David Mitchell, Peep Show) has returned to his provincial pub, refreshed and re-energized. Thankfully Andrew (Robert Webb, Peep Show), the formerly prodigal foster brother, has been treading water to keep it going. But it's not all smooth sailing. Stephen's sister Cass (Louise Brealey, Sherlock), resenting her mum's relationship with young boyfriend Julian (John Macmillan, Chewing Gum), packs up and leaves home. Seemingly altruistic Andrew is focusing his troubling charm on the elderly parents of Stephen's ex-wife Alison (Olivia Poulet, Holby City). Blunt and uncompromising Uncle Geoff (Geoffrey McGivern, Quiz) gets married and 're-greens' his farm. Finally, the opening of a spectacular rival pub threatens the very future of The John Barleycorn.
