Queensland-born comedian and writer Benjamin Law’s comedy series “The Family Law” will return to our screens next month, SBS has announced.

Written and created by Law and based on his memoir of the same name, The Family Law is a coming-of-age story told through the eyes of teen Benjamin as he grows up amidst the chaos of his hilarious, heartwarming and dysfunctional family on the Sunshine Coast.

The new six-part series, filmed in Queensland, will air on SBS from Thursday, June 15.

In the new series, Ben’s parents Jenny Law and Danny Law have parted ways, and Danny opens “Asian Alley”, an Asian grocery store, while Jenny embarks on a quest of self-discovery, SBS teased in a statement.

Ben does his best to help his parents and tries to stop his family from going off the rails, all while juggling a role in Sacred Heart High’s groundbreaking feelgood school production about infanticide, “Medea”.

When the second series was announced last year, Ben said: “We’re excited to be putting a 90 percent Asian-Australian cast on TV again, and picking right up from where we left the Laws.

“Once again, we’re looking forward to making people laugh as much as they cry from their hearts breaking – partly, because we’re mean, but ultimately because that’s what family’s about, really.”

The Family Law’s second series starts on SBS on June 15. Watch a sneak peek below:
