By Jacob Klein on Jun 6, 2014 to Chris Lilley

Can’t get enough of Chris Lilley? Well, he’s following up Summer Heights High, Angry Boys and Ja’mie Private School Girl with another series: Jonah from Tonga! Fans of Summer Heights High know that Jonah is a rebellious teen who’s proud of his Polynesian heritage.

Here’s a taste of Jonah:

The new show will debut on HBO August 8th at 9PM (a Friday night) with a dual episode. Subsequent Fridays will feature a single episode. The series, like Ja’mie, will run SIX episodes of thirty minutes a piece.

Thanks for keeping us laughing, Chris! Can’t wait for this one.
