What is the plot of Ten Pound Poms season 2?
Series 1 of Ten Pound Poms followed the British families who responded to a newspaper advert that promised a new life for them in Australia, all for the low price of just £10. However, when two such families decide to take the advert up on its offer, they are surprised to find that life down under isn’t as warm the newspaper promised.
Upon arrival, new families are met with racism, shoddy housing and locals who are less than impressed with the arrival of their new neighbours. Series two promises to continue these stories, with the Roberts family regrouping and deciding to make the most of their new life in Australia despite the odds that seem stacked against them.
As series 2’s synopsis explains, “After a challenging first year in Australia, the new series will follow nurse Kate Thorne (Michelle Keegan) and the Roberts family (led by Faye Marsay and Warren Brown) into 1957 on their adventure down under, as they are determined to make this new country everything they hoped it would be for a fresh start.
"Will Kate, Terry and Annie finally get a slice of the Australian dream they were promised?”
Will Michelle Keegan return for Ten Pound Poms season 2?
Keegan will return to play nurse Kate Thorne for Ten Pound Poms season two, alongside Marsay’s matriarch Anne Roberts. They’ll once again be joined by Warren Brown as Anne’s husband Terry.
Other returning names include Australian actors Leon Ford as Bill, Rob Collins as Ron Mohoney, Declan Coyle’s Stevie, Stephen Curry as JJ, Finn Treacy as Peter, Hattie Hook as Pattie, Cheree Cassidy as Marlene and Emma Hamilton as Shelia.
The cast will be joined by newcomers including the Skinner family who arrive in Australia fresh from Ireland and a dodgy landlord named Benny Bates who threatens to cause chaos. Casting for these roles has yet to be revealed.
Ten Pound Poms series 2 is coming soon to BBC One and iPlayer.
