Judge Romesh will officially return to Dave for Season 2.
Romesh Ranganathan will once again don his robes and bang the gavel, as court is back in session for a new, extended run of the Dave comedy. From the moment he bounces into the courtroom over a blaring hip hop soundtrack, Judge Romesh is in charge and his decree is final, making barely informed decisions on trivial real-life disputes. Helping the judge run the rule over each case are his trusty bailiff Tom Davis and Jessica Knappett as the court’s clerk.
“He does everything except actually judge cases,” we wrote in our review of the series. “After all, why bother with the law when you can help people by making sarcastic remarks?”
Judge Romesh is produced by Hungry Bear Media, commissioned for UKTV by Joe McVey, commissioning editor, and ordered by Richard Watsham, director of commissioning and Luke Hales, Dave channel director. Judge Romesh is directed by Ollie Bartlett, series produced by Adam Hutchinson and executive produced for Hungry Bear Media by Dan Baldwin and Andy Price.
The 10 episodes of Season 1 were seen by 3.7 million viewers. Now, Dave has ordered a 12-episode second season.
Ranganathan says: “It is great to be able to do a second series of Judge Romesh. Some may think it’s because it’s an easy job, the money’s good and I’m working with mates, but the truth is I’m purely motivated by helping people with the problems that they, for some reason, believe to be important.”
Judge Romesh joins other returning favourites for Dave in 2019 such as Taskmaster, Porters, John Richardson: Ultimate Worrier and Yianni: Supercar Customiser.
