Creators Beaumont, Anne-Maire O’Connor (Trollied) and Caroline Moran (Raised by Wolves) are keen to continue to tell the stories about relatable female characters and keep Hull at the forefront.

Speaking to Channel 4, Beaumont said:, “I am really proud of it [the series] because I feel like everyone was on the same page with the class thing.

“There are a lot of production companies that are very London-centric. We see very few authentic working-class representations, especially in comedy, I’ve had so little to refer to and that annoyed me.”

O’Connor said that it is important to balance authenticity and representation.

“It’s fine to be aspirational but representation on TV is really important to me, especially for working-class people coming through the industry,” she said.

“When there’s an authenticity to those stories, it really resonates with audiences. To see somewhere like Hull represented truthfully is like the Holy Grail, especially in comedy.”

What have Hullraisers’ fans said?

Audiences have taken to social media to express their love for the show in the hopes that it will return for a second season.

“This can’t be it. There HAS to be another series of Hullraisers! I have never laughed so much!” one fan tweeted.
