Are you a fan of the BBC One TV show, Boomers? Has the long hiatus made you concerned that it has been cancelled? Well, keep calm and carry on. BBC One has renewed the comedy for a second series (i.e. “season” in US parlance). Boomers series two is set to return with six episodes in 2016. Boomers stars Russ Abbot, Stephanie Beacham, Phillip Jackson, James Smith, Alison Steadman, and Paula Wilcox. The last new episode of Boomers first aired on BBC One, on September 19, 2014.
