Fresh Meat and Beaver Falls have been renewed by Channel 4.

Both of the comedies will return for a second series, the broadcaster announced today.

Fresh Meat, which stars Jack Whitehall and Joe Thomas, focuses on a group of university students living together.

The show has been penned by Peep Show scribes Sam Bain and Jesse Armstrong and has been well-received since it premiered on Channel 4 last month.

Meanwhile, the E4 comedy Beaver Falls - which stars John Dagleish and follows British teens working at an American summer camp - has also been recommissioned.

"I am delighted that our strong series output has been recognised with a double recommission," said Channel 4's head of drama Camilla Campbell. "Our series continue to reach the heart of the 16-34 audience, and consistently bring loyal viewers to Channel 4 and E4."

Beaver Falls is due to return next summer while Fresh Meat is currently expected to be back for its second series late next year.
