Rhod Gilbert returns for more Growing Pains on Comedy Central


Rhod Gilbert returns for more Growing Pains on Comedy Central

Comedy Central has ordered a sixth series of Rhod Gilbert’s Growing Pains, with eight episodes filming in the Autumn for release later in 2024.

Luke Hales, SVP Content & Brand Strategy MTV Entertainment Group:

“We are delighted that Rhod Gilbert will be returning to Comedy Central to delve into even more celebrities’ toe-curling teenage revelations. This time, the festive laughs will also be flowing, as the series will include two special episodes celebrating cringeworthy adolescent Christmases and New Year’s Eves.”

From the award-winning Rumpus Media (part of STV Studios), Rhod Gilbert will return to delve into more adolescent embarrassment. The series sees Rhod joined by a trio of famous faces in each episode, to roll back the clock, reveal hilarious stories from their youth and compete to see who had the most traumatic teenage years. Season five is currently airing on Comedy Central on Mondays at 9pm.

For the first time, the series will feature two special festive episodes, celebrating Christmas and New Year’s Eve later this year on Comedy Central.

A training scheme from Comedy Central and Rumpus Media will coincide with the series’ production, open to anyone over the age of 18 in the UK interested in a career in TV, with people from diverse and underrepresented backgrounds particularly encouraged to apply.

Rhod Gilbert:

“I can’t wait to drag more famous faces back to their teens, slice open their adolescent mattresses, rifle through their embarrassing school photos, show the world their excruciating teenage diaries and generally tip their former lives upside down until the shame falls out. I have such a laugh making this show I don’t even want to be paid* (*correct at time of going to press; incorrect now).”

Josephine Brassey, Rumpus Media Acting Managing Director:

“Rumpus is thrilled to take Comedy Central viewers down more hilariously embarrassing celebrity memory lanes in a new series of Rhod Gilbert’s Growing Pains. As part of our commitment to bringing new talent into the industry, we’re pleased to welcome applicants from all backgrounds to apply for our trainee scheme with Comedy Central. The scheme has been hugely successful on previous productions with a number of trainees going on to further television production roles.”

Rhod Gilbert’s Growing Pains Series 6 will air in hour-long slots across eight episodes.
