Bad Sisters star and writer Sharon Horgan has provided an update on what fans expect from series two. 

Written and produced by the Irish telly star, the show is set on the coast of Ireland somewhere near Dublin and follows five sisters conspiring to murder their awful and abusive brother-in-law, John Paul.

Horgan also stars in the series as one of the sisters, alongside Anne-Marie Duff, Eva Birthistle, Sarah Greene and Eve Hewson, while Claes Bang stars as the horrible John Paul.

The first series was a major success when it landed on Apple TV+ in July 2022, and was picked up for a series 2 in December

Speaking about the highly-anticipated second run of episodes, Sharon told at the RTS Awards 2023 red carpet on Tuesday (28th March) that writing for series two is well underway. 

Hogan explained: “I'm just writing it at the moment and it's really fun. We're trying to keep what was good about the first one, or what people liked about the first one, which is lots of the sisters doing slightly criminal things quite badly.”

It seems Horgan is enjoying some more action-packed roles. Prior to creating Bad Sisters, the This Way Up star shared the screen with acting icon Nicolas Cage in blockbuster The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent. 

Not only was she playing Cage’s ex-wife Olivia Henson opposite the Face/Off legend, but Horgan also starred alongside Hollywood’s latest heartthrob and Last of Us star Pedro Pascal

Speaking about her time on the high-octane flick, Sharon shared: “I loved it. I got to hang out with Pedro Pascal for seven weeks. He's the king, absolutely gorgeous and really funny."

On whether or not she’d like to star in more explosive action movies, the Motherland creator added: “I love a bit of action. I mean, Bad Sisters is all action really. We're trying to kill someone a lot, or not getting killed so it'll feel a bit action.”

While we sit back and wait to hear all about Bad Sisters series two, Sharon recently appeared on The  Chris Evans Breakfast Show with cinch, and admitted she was blown away by the popularity of the series. 

She said: “When you do any show you get some reviews from the UK press, or Irish press or sometimes American press. But now, with this show, you’re like getting everything from across the globe that comes in. It’s kind of exciting that many people have seen it.”

She added: “I’ve never got to make anything like this before.”

Bad Sisters season one is now available on Apple TV+.
