White Gold Season 2: Release Date, Cast, Trailer, Spoilers & News

A clever and comic plot, with hints of irony and at times bitter humour, whilst keeping some with some scenes being humorous in a rather vulgar way. The plot is quite memorable, and some scenes certainly have a deeper meaning to them; the final episode leaves one thinking about the ending for a some time afterwards. You certainly want to binge watch all the episodes at once.

White Gold, which was broadcast in May and June, performed very strongly for the network. The programme is BBC Two’s biggest comedy launch of the year, and – after publishing all six episodes online in a ‘box set’ after the first episode was broadcast – became one of the most watched UK comedy shows online.

Show creator Damon Beesley said: “It’s both an honour and a pleasure to be working with the BBC again on a second series of White Gold. I like to think of it as selling them a series two conservatory to go with their series one patio doors. “I’m especially looking forward to watching re-runs of Top of the Pops ’85 for ‘research’.”

White Gold Season 2 Cast: Who’s in it?

The cast in this show is absolutely great. Ed Westwick, James Buckley and Joe Thomas are an incredibly funny trio that you will for sure grow fond of over the episodes. If you’ve ever worked or been in contact with sales, you’ll definitely relate to the characters and the situations that they find themselves in. Ed Westwick plays fast-talking Vincent who narrates directly to the camera to keep us in tune with what’s going on in his world. James Buckley and Joe Thomas team up again, and fill the screen with remarkable chemistry while they spar off each other effortlessly. Beesley should re-write ‘The Odd Couple’ for these two!
