HBO’s “Getting On” returns! Will you be watching?


The HBO medical comedy Getting On is coming back for another season starting November 9! Will you be watching?

The offbeat show is based on a British series of the same name on the BBC. Taking place in the geriatric wing of a hospital, the darkly comic series stars Laurie Metcalf, Alex Borstein, Niecy Nash and Joel Johnstone.

The original BBC version ran for three seasons and was critically acclaimed, with star Jo Brand winning a BAFTA award for best actress in a comedy. The HBO version, which was well received by critics and viewers in its first season, is handled by Big Love creators Mark V. Olsen and Will Scheffer.
