Xfm Series 2 ran from August 2002 to August 2003. Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant were back from filming the second series of The Office, and Karl Pilkington was back having recently produced Simon Pegg and Nick Frost's Xfm show.

Soon things were back to normal, with Ricky and Steve equally entertained and scornful of Karl's peculiar outlook on life. And as well as through his opinions and anecdotes, Karl also contributed to the series with several features such as 'Rockbusters', 'Monkey News' and 'Educating Ricky'.
