About the series

Asian Provocateur is a BBC Three original comedy that has been on the air since 2015. Executive produced by Emily Hudd and Ian Wimbush and hailing from Rumpus Media, the current second series debuted on October 12, 2016.

The first series of the show follows comedian Romesh Ranganathan as he is attempting to connect to his roots in Sri Lanka after his (real-life) mother Shanti sends him off to the country of his ancestors. Ranganathan intimately experiences Sri Lankan life on a “what if” premise, namely, what if his parents hadn`t emigrated. He goes on religious pilgrimages, tries out Ayurvedic medicine, and undertakes other unique adventures to explore the land of his ancestors.

Current season and chances of renewal

The second series of Asian Provocateur, titled Mum`s American Dream sees Ranganathan and his mum traveling around the United States and Canada, visiting relatives and exploring the countries. The show is garnering excellent reviews and has earned a strong 8.5/10 IMDb score. Additionally, Ranganathan was nominated for a Best Entertainment Performance BAFTA for Asian Provocateur, and not only is his performance a delight, but his participation may have started a ripe trend of second and third-generation immigrants returning to the countries of their origin and exploring them in a very personal way. While BBC Three ratings are not available to the general public, all of the other signs are pointing to very high chances of a third season commission. Stay tuned for the latest info.
