Alma's Not Normal Returns for Series 2 on BBC This Autumn

The eccentric and very funny series Alma’s Not Normal is returning to BBC Two and BBC iPlayer this autumn, and a first-look image has been released to tease the upcoming second series.

Created, written by, and starring Sophie Willan, the show centres on Alma Nuthall, a thirty-something aspiring actress from Bolton, who is trying to get her life back on track following a break-up., and her unconventional family of women including her heroin-addicted mother, Lin, and her vampish grandma, Joan. The series was commissioned after Willan won the BBC’s Caroline Aherne Bursary Award in 2018 and a BAFTA winning pilot in 2020.
