The British comedy ‘We Are Lady Parts’ which follows the lives of the all-women Muslim punk band Lady Parts, is coming back for a second season on Peacock. Deadline reported that starting May 30, all six new episodes will be on the streaming platform. This season, guest stars will include Nobel Peace Prize winner Malala Yousufzai and British comedian Meera Syal.

NBC says the first episode of We Are Lady Parts was shown in 2018, followed by a full season of six episodes in 2021. Each member of the band has their own unique personality, and the show talks about things like friendship, family duties, and what people expect from women in society.

“Making season one of We Are Lady Parts was immense for me,” admitted Manzoor, who has written, created, and directed the show. “It was a trial by fire, but I found my voice, my style and my confidence in creating this show.” She went on to add, “Most importantly, I found my tribe – from actors and crew to producers and studio execs.”

With the groundwork set, Manzoor felt that working on the second season of her creation was much simpler. “Starting season two, I felt energized,” she said. “The characters, the setting, the mood – everything was already in place and good to go. Now, I wanted to make things even more exciting. I aimed to make it more daring, funnier, darker, and more profound, and that’s exactly what we tried to do.”


Manzoor said the new season will dig deeper into the lives of all the women in the show. “Each of them will face new challenges, but still keeping the humor and fun from season one,” she explained. She also mentioned they were creating more original music for the show. “The music will be bigger too – more original songs and even better covers.”


With the setting in the music industry, Manzoor highlighted that the show would explore what success really means. She is excited about sharing her project with the world. “For a punk band, is fame and big record deals the goal?” she questioned. “I wanted to look at the tension between art and business and see how much compromise is too much. I’m really proud of what we’ve done and can’t wait to share it with everyone.”


All six episodes of the first season of We Are Lady Parts are available on Peacock. The show is produced by Working Title Television (WTTV), a part of Universal International Studios.
