BSkyB has commissioned a second series of quirky comedy This is Jinsy.
The series, which has featured guest appearances from David Tennant and Harry Hill, will return for an eight part run on Sky Atlantic in 2013.
This is Jinsy, a comedy about the bizarre residents of the fictional island of Jinsy, was nominated for Best Sketch Show at this year's British Comedy Awards earlier this week.
The Welded Tandem Picture company, the production firm behind This is Jinsy, will produce eight new 30-minute episodes.
Pilot episodes of This is Jinsy were broadcast on BBC3 in 2010
"We are thrilled that Sky Comedy is bringing This is Jinsy back to Sky Atlantic," said executive producer Chris Carey and producer James Dean. "Series two will be bigger, better and funnier".
The recommission of This is Jinsy comes as Sky Atlantic makes other big-name additions to its comedy line-up, reportedly including Steve Coogan's latest Alan Partridge series Mid Morning Matters and US series Nurse Jackie.
