The scripts are in and production soon set to begin on the highly-anticipated second series of Finding Joy.

Having debuted as the highest rating comedy of the year on RTE last year, rating even higher than The Young Offenders, it's no surprise the quirky comedy is primed for a second run.

Amy Huberman wrote and starred in the first series as Joy, a woman who finds herself thrust into the limelight as she tries to recover from a painful break-up.

Now Amy is set to reprise her role, and has already delivered "wonderful scripts" for the second run ahead of production starting before the end of the year.

"We are delighted to be well into the process of developing series two of Finding Joy," said a spokesperson for production company Treasure Entertainment.

"Amy has delivered wonderful scripts and we hope to be in production by the end of the year.

"The reaction to series one was terrific and we are really looking forward to embarking on that joyful experience again soon."

Details on Joy's new adventure, and cast details, have not yet been revealed but the first series boasted a line-up including the brilliant Aisling Bea, Jenny Rainsford, Laura Whitmore, Catherine Walker and Mark Doherty.

The first episode launched with an impressive average audience of 378,000 and 30 per cent share which increased to a consolidated figure of 428,000 at the end of the first week.
