Agony Again is a British sitcom that aired on BBC1 in 1995. Starring Maureen Lipman, it is the sequel to Agony, an ITV sitcom that aired from 1979 to 1981. Agony Again was written by Carl Gorham, Michael Hatt and Amanda Swift.



Fourteen years after Agony ended on ITV, the BBC revived it as Agony Again. The BBC had also revived other sitcoms, including Doctor in the House, The Liver Birds and Reginald Perrin in the 1990s. Some of the original cast were used, although Simon Williams' character Laurence is not a main character like before.


Jane Lucas now has her own television show, Lucas Live, but as before she neglects her own problems, including her son (who comes out as gay during the series), and focuses on other people's, especially homeless former businessman Richard. She has the beginnings of a romance with Daniel, a social worker. Jane's producer is Debra and her mother Bea, who was determined for her to remarry, is still a main character.
