Upright gets November Return on Foxtel

Lucky and Meg will once again hit the open road In November with the season two premiere of FOXTEL Original series Upright

Starring critically acclaimed musician, comedian, actor and writer Tim Minchin (Californication), and Milly Alcock (House of the Dragon).

The official trailer and key art for the new eight-episode season has also been released with a sneak peek into the epic adventure in store for the misfit duo, reunited after four years when Meg turns up unannounced. Lucky and Meg hit the road – and the river – on a mission to find Meg’s mum, trading the desert for the steamy tropics of Far North Queensland.

Tim Minchin, Executive Producer, Lead Writer, and star of Upright said: “For me, the key to unlocking this second season was the idea that time has passed. I was intrigued by who a 17 year old Meg would be, and how she would relate to Lucky. Of course, four incredibly eventful years have also passed in the real world, during which my costar had become a megastar! So Milly and I had to discover each other again, too, against the backdrop of real life pandemics, floods, and the ever-ticking clock. We were so lucky to have the brilliant Mirrah Foulkes steering the metaphorical tinny up the allegorical creek.”

Upright features a stellar returning cast including Heather Mitchell (Love MePalm Beach), Ella Scott Lynch (Amazing GraceThe Code), Daniel Lapaine (CatastropheFive Bedrooms), Daniel Frederiksen (The DryMiss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries) and Asmara Feik (The True History of the Kelly GangThe Listies Work for Peanuts).
