Netflix has commissioned an eight-episode second season of romantic comedy series Scrotal Recall following a deal with BBC Worldwide North America. Clerkenwell Films will produce the new season exclusively for Netflix, which the Internet network will debut globally.
Series stars Johnny Flynn, Antonia Thomas and Daniel Ings are all returning for the second go-round. The first season followed the exploits of hapless 20-something Dylan Witter (Flynn) who, after receiving a troubling diagnosis, resolves to contact everyone he’s ever slept with to tell them the news. Each episode focuses on Dylan reaching out to a different girl from his past, which gives him the opportunity to look back on his neurotic mess of a love life and figure out where it all went wrong – all the while missing his most obvious hope at true love that has been under his nose the whole time. Joining him on this trip down memory lane are best friend Evie (Thomas), and ladies’ man Luke (Ings).

Scrotal Recall Season 1 is now streaming on Netflix in the U.S. and Canada and will be available globally later this year.
