Buffering returns to ITV2 - Sitcom by Iain Stirling and Steve Bugeja

Buffering, a six-part comedy series created, written, and starring BAFTA-winning comedian Iain Stirling (Love Island, CelebAbility, Taskmaster), along with co-creator and writer Steve Bugeja (The Russell Howard Hour, CelebAbility, Economics with Subtitles), will return to ITV2 for a second season at 10.05 p.m. on Monday, January 30. A full series will also air at the same time on ITVX.

Buffering follows the lives of kids' TV presenter Iain (Iain Stirling) and his housemates: Ashley (Rosa Robson - Black Mountain Poets, Inside No. 9, Heavy Entertainment), Rosie (Jessie Cave - Harry Potter, Trollied, Black Mirror), Greg (Paul G Raymond - Plebs, Avenue 5, Starstruck), and Thalia (Janine Harouni - Stand Up with Janine Harouni (Please Remain Seated), The Batman, Modern Horror Stories) as they attempt to navigate the choppy waters of their late twenties, with every wrong decision, failed relationship and wasted hungover day intensifying the feeling that time is running out for them to get their 'adult' lives in order.

We'll follow Iain and his housemates as they seek to improve their lives throughout this new series. The gang will always have each other when, inevitably, things don't go as planned, whether it's holding house parties, looking for a job, dating, visiting the countryside, hosting pub quizzes, or just figuring out their genuine feelings for one another. Iain's on-off (mainly off) girlfriend Olivia (Elena Saurel - The Batman, Industry, Breeders) and his obnoxious coworker Finn are there to assist them (Steve Bugeja).

Special guest stars Laura Whitmore (2:22 A Ghost Story, Laura Whitmore Investigates, Love Island), Emily Atack (The Emily Atack Show, The Inbetweeners, Dad's Army), David Carlyle (It's a Sin, Bodyguard, Lip Service), Tony Way (After Life, Giri/Haji, Game of Thrones), Melvin Odoom (BBC R1's Live Lounge, Celebrity Cooking School, Xtra Factor), Tyne-Lexy Clarson (The Last Heist, Little Women The Broadway Musical, Love Island), Sophie Duker (Taskmaster, Frankie Boyle's New World Order, Live at The Apollo) and Gordon Kane (Hamlet, Coronation Street,
