Audible today announces the return of the critically-acclaimed Audible Original, Coupledom with Idris Elba and Sabrina Elba. Comprising of six new episodes, series two will once again see the couple explore partnerships in love, business, creativity or as a family, as they are joined by iconic duos from the worlds of sport, film, music, and beyond.
Featuring a new all-star line-up, each episode will see the Elbas dive back into the world of extraordinary partnerships. These include: Olympic gold medallist Tom Daley and his husband, Academy award-winning screenwriter, director, film and television producer and LGBTQIA+ activist Dustin Lance Black; popstar and actress Rita Ora with her sister and manager Elena Ora; actor and comedian Seth Rogen with his childhood best friend; Canadian director and writing partner Evan Goldberg; internationally-renowned author George R R Martin with House of the Dragon showrunner Ryan Condal; Oscar-winning song-writing team and spouses, Robert Lopez and Kristen Anderson-Lopez, and Heart of Dinner founders Yin Chang & Moonlynn Tsai.
Listeners will be privy to honest and unguarded conversations about the joys and complexities of living a shared life, as the series highlights a breadth of first-hand experiences, including themes such a surrogacy, sexism, racism, sisterhood, and high-stakes collaborations.
Posing the question of whether finding the right partner in life can help us to reach our full potential, Coupledom with Idris and Sabrina Elba gives a behind the scenes glimpse at some of the world’s most recognisable duos, providing thought-provoking insight for listeners to incorporate into their own, personal ‘coupledoms’.
Following a successful first season, launched in June 2021, Coupledom Season Two is once again created and produced by award-winning actor, producer, director, DJ and S’ABLE Labs co-founder Idris Elba (OBE), and model, activist and co-founder of S’ABLE Labs, Sabrina Elba. Featuring prestigious guests including Kim Kardashian & Kris Jenner; Ben & Jerry; and Nadiya & Abdal Hussain, its inaugural season saw its co-hosts declared the “the new first couple of podcasting” (Evening Standard, 2021), with this follow up series promising a return to form.
Sabrina Elba, co-host of Coupledom with Idris and Sabrina Elba, said: “Hosting my first podcast, Coupledom series 1, with my husband was such a great opportunity and rewarding experience. It’s not often that you get to pick the brains of such remarkable people. We are so grateful to our guests for allowing us to be a part of their meaningful and personal moments. Coupledom series 2 has only solidified our love for this project and our appreciation for our new set of duos. As we often say, we are not the “relationship experts”; Coupledom was created for us to listen and learn; we can’t wait for you to listen with us!”
