The team behind the series is already excited and overwhelmed by all the response it has received over the past few weeks. “I am really looking forward to getting back into our pen and into our characters,” says Jelle De Beule, aka Uncle Luc. “Certainly after all the warm reactions of the past few weeks. The series has made young and old laugh. That’s the best compliment for all of us. We have really become family. For that alone it is Uncles II a present: a long-awaited family reunion.”

The pancakes

Rik Verheye, aka Uncle Willy, sounds the same: “The response was absolutely overwhelming. From quotes that were yelled at us to a bulging mailbox with photos of, according to Carine, correctly served – rik an rik, equal two half moons – pancakes. Not to mention hilarious selfies with Uncle Willy’s grass-green Porsche and the many photos of a random patch of artificial grass. How sweet is that?”

A big thank you also goes out to the cast and crew. “I’m just thinking about our fantastic female renditions. Because let’s be honest: no uncles, without aunts. Not a ton of tons, without a brilliant Innocent. And no barking at Luc without our Kürtje. I can’t wait to dive back into our Persyn world.”
