Apple has announced that "Trying," its British comedy about fertility and adoption, is to begin its second season on May 14. Apple TV+ has also commissioned a third run.

Its eight-episode second season will premiere weekly on Fridays, and continues the story of a couple trying for children. In this second run, Nikki (Esther Smith) and Jason (Rafe Spall) are attempting adoption, and finding that being matched with a child is harder than they'd imagined.

"Trying" was the first scripted British comedy on Apple TV+. It comes from writer/creator Andy Wolton, and its producers have previously made shows such as "Derry Girls," "Motherland," and Catastrophe.

    I am really pleased - this was probably my favourite Apple TV+ show so far. It started gently and I thought it was in in the same vein as Catastrophe but less successful. I was wrong. It's a very different beast. It is softer than Catastrophe but not worse for it. Really well done and beautifully scripted. Rafe Spall just wonderful it.

    Derry Girls is an amazing show. I'm eagerly awaiting a new season!

    I tried Trying once, but it somehow didn't grab my attention. I'll give it another go.
