The new series of W1A will be its last

Award-winning comedy W1A returns to our screens next week, with the programme about the inner-workings of the BBC debuting on Monday 18th September at 9pm, on BBC One. But enjoy it: for its writer has cautioned that it’s set to be the last run of the show.

Writer John Morton confirmed this to the Radio Times, admitting that series three “is probably going to be the final one”. As such, he’s written an ending for the show, although added that “spoiler alert, there’s no plane crash, they’re all still alive at the end, but with that in mind I thought ‘God, if this is the final one, it better be good’”.

Morton revealed that the new series took a year to write, describing the process as “unbelievably slow”.

Hugh Bonneville will lead the returning the cast.
