The soundtrack breakdown for Extraordinary has been released – check it out below.

Created by Emma Moran, the British superhero comedy series follows Jen (Máiréad Tyers) who lives in a world where everyone has a superpower except her.

A synopsis reads: “Meet Jen. She lives in a world where everyone has a superpower. Everyone except her. Which is just sodding great. Extraordinary is somewhere between a sitcom and an existential crisis: an eye-popping, shocking, hilarious, and bittersweet comedy about finding your way in the world, when all you’ll ever be is ‘ordinary’.”


Alongside Tyers, the show’s cast includes Sofia Oxenham, Bilal Hasna and Luke Rollason. Siobhán McSweeney (Derry Girls), Robbie Gee (Snatch), Ned Porteous (Bridgerton) and Patricia Allison (Sex Education) also star in supporting roles.
