First Look

FIRST LOOK: Super-powered comedy Extraordinary is set to return to US streamer Hulu and Disney+ around the world on March 6.

In a world where everyone over the age of 18 develops a superpower, the series introduces 25-year-old Jen, who feels like she’s being left behind. Adrift in a big, confusing world, and armed with nothing but a bit of hope and a lot of desperation, Jen begins her journey to find her maybe-superpower. But in doing so, she might discover the joy of being just kind of ok.

Season two picks up where season one left off, following Jen (Máiréad Tyers) on her powers journey as she enrols as a client at the power clinic. Jen soon discovers that the process of finding her power isn’t as easy as she hoped, and things in the rest of her life aren’t smooth sailing either.

Her ex-cat, now-boyfriend Jizzlord (Luke Rollason) has had an unexpected revelation about his past, and Kash (Bilal Hasna) and Carrie (Sofia Oxenham) are attempting to be totally mature and dignified about their break-up, which is not easy when they’re still living under the same roof. It seems that Jen and the gang are dealing with new levels of adulting and chaos that none of them are prepared for.

Siobhán McSweeney and Robbie Gee also return in season two as Mary and Ian, Jen’s mum and stepdad.

New cast members this season includes Julian Barrett as George, Jen’s power coach at the Discovery Clinic; Rosa Robson as Nora, an unexpected person from Jizzlord’s past; Kwaku Mills as Clark, Carrie’s new work colleague; and Derek Jacobi, who will voice a special cameo role.

Extraordinary is written by series creator Emma Moran and directed by Toby MacDonald and Jennifer Sheridan. It is executive produced by Sally Woodward Gentle and Lee Morris for Sid Gentle Films (Killing Eve). Charles Dawson, Johanna Devereaux and Emma Moran are also executive producers. Charlie Palmer is series producer, with Abíólá Rufai-Awójídé as producer.
