TV show description:
This Australian mockumentary series is a follow-up to the Summer Heights High TV show. It follows the story of Jonah Takalua (Chris Lilley), a rebellious Tongan teen who just can’t help himself when it comes to stirring up trouble.
At the end of Summer Heights High, Jonah was expelled midway through Year eight. The story picks up four months later, with Jonah banished by his father to the island of Tongapatu and living with his extended family. The arrangement isn’t working out very well for anyone.
When his uncle has had enough and sends him back to Sydney, Jonah finds himself enrolled at the Holy Cross Catholic high school, with new friends, new foes, and new teachers he drives to the brink of insanity.
Through it all, Jonah tries to leave his naughty ways behind and be a “good boy,” but as per usual, things never quite go as planned.
This TV series has not ended yet.
First aired: TBD
