BBC Just Added 'Summer Heights High' To iPlayer And It's So Quiche
Last week it was revealed Chris Lilley's newest mocumentary Lunatics will hit Netflix this weekend, and the good news just keeps on coming, as BBC reveals Summer Heights High has returned to iPlayer.
Director of Performing Arts Mr G, private-school student Ja'mie King, and disobedient Tongan ex-change student Jonah Takalua are all back, and it's so quiche.
That means there's just a few days to binge your way through the iconic comedy, and reacquaint yourselves with Chris Lilley's bizarre yet hilarious humour before the brand new series lands.
Last week Netflix released the official Lunatics trailer, which sees Chris transforms himself into a 44-year-old ex porn star, a 7ft 3in YouTuber, a sex-obsessed fashion designer and more.
One of his characters is Jana, a pet psychic who works mostly with celebrities, conducting her work from her South African home.
Jana, who is known for her loud clothing and bold wigs, also talks candidly about her overwhelming feelings towards her personal assistant.
The hilarious mocumentary will "examine the lives of six extraordinary individuals and will explore the idea that people are not what they seem at first."
The official synopsis reads: "Lunatics: the story of six characters coming to terms with themselves and the world around them - be it a haunting past or a pressurising future, finding love or chasing dreams. Starring Chris Lilley, Chris Lilley, Chris Lilley, Chris Lilley, Chris Lilley, and Chris Lilley."
Chris is known for his risqué comedy series Angry Boys and Summer Heights High spin-offs Ja'mie: Private School Girl and Jonah From Tonga.
Despite its popularity, Jonah from Tonga was axed from New Zealand's Maori Television broadcaster after it was deemed to be culturally inappropriate.
Lunatics airs on Netflix on Friday 19th April and Summer Heights High is available to stream on BBC iPlayer now.
