The 'Angry Boys' creator will return to TV with a new show set to begin filming later this year.

Australian comic Chris Lilley is set to create a new 10 episode series for Netflix.

Deadline reports that the Summer Heights High and Angry Boys creator will star in the series which will be shot on Australia's Gold Coast. The currently untitled show has been developed by Lilley with his longtime production partner Laura Waters.

Plot details are also currently being kept under wraps although we certainly hope we might get to see a reprisal of the egomaniacal drama school teacher Mr G.

Fingers crossed.

However, not everyone is happy with the decision given Lilley's history of using blackface in his previous shows.

Lilley was forced to apologise as recently as last summer when he posted a fan-made remix video of a song from Angry Boys featuring the comedian in blackface rapping about an Aboriginal boy being run over by a truck, just days after a controversial court verdict over the death of indigenous teenager Elijah Doughty by a 56 year old driver.
