It’s been three years since We Are Lady Parts first premiered, and its return is finally on the horizon. Our favorite all-girl punk band will return in the second season of this British sitcom, set to debut on Channel 4 this May with several amazing guest stars.

We Are Lady Parts centers on a group of Muslim women who decided to form their own punk band and overcome many obstacles to find success. Anjana Vasan leads the cast as Amina, Lady Part’s new lead guitarist and a shy PhD student, who must adjust to being in the spotlight.

In addition to Vasan, We Are Lady Parts also stars Sarah Kameela Impey, Juliette Motamed, Faith Omole, Lucie Shorthouse, Aiysha Hart, Zaqi Ismail, and Shobu Kapoor. They’ll be joined by several amazing guest stars in Season 2, including the Nobel Peace Prize laureate Malala Yousafzai and famous comedian and playwright Meera Syal.

The six-episode Season 2 will premiere on May 30, and its creator Nida Manzoor promises it will be bolder, sillier, darker, and deeper than the first chapter.

“In season two, we explore the interior lives of each of the women in more depth. Each of them facing new, existential challenges with all the silliness, pratfalls, and banter of season one. The music is bigger too – more wild original tunes, and dare I say it, even better covers,” said Manzoor in a statement to Deadline.
