Star-studded cast and media chiefs hit the red carpet, but it’s the pooch that everyone wanted to see.

The Foxtel Group last night celebrated the Season 2 launch of Binge’s global hit comedy original, Colin From Accounts. Series creators and stars Patrick Brammall and Harriet Dyer walked the red carpet at Sydney’s Factory Theatre for what was billed as the world premiere.

They were joined by the cast of Colin From AccountsHelen Thomson, Emma Harvie, Tai Hara, Michael Logo, Genevieve Hegney, Annie Maynard, John Howard, and Justin Rosniak.

Creating the most fuss on the red carpet was the real star of the show – Colin. The seven-year-old Border Terrier Zak was most in demand as he was cuddled by the cast, and hounded (!) by the paparazzi.

What happens in Colin From Accounts season 2

TV critics have received instructions from Binge that they shouldn’t reveal any plot points from the new episodes being dropped in season two.

What we can say is that Colin’s owners Gordon and Harriet are together, sort of, after splitting at the end of the first season. They gave away Colin to new owners at the end of Season 1. Will they be reunited with their beloved pooch?

There is also a significant twist at the end of the first episode which will have viewers wondering if they missed something in Season 1.
