A very welcome update here. The BBC has confirmed that it has indeed ordered a third series of This Country that’ll feature six episodes. It’s set to go into production next year. Ahead of that, though, we’ll also get a 40 minute special. That’s likely to hit this year.
BBC Three’s currently sitcom of choice is the brilliant This Country, whose second series launched earlier this year. Written by and starring Daisy May Cooper and Charlie Cooper, we now learn too that there are plans for more episodes of the show.
The BBC is in negotiations with the pair for a possible third series of the programme, and Daisy May Cooper has confirmed that they do indeed plan to sit down and pen a third series of the show. The small matter of her new baby in real life is slowing things down a little, though!
No formal announcement has thus far been forthcoming, but it does all feel like it’s a matter of time.
You can catch up with This Country on BBC Three now, where it’s both brilliant, and available to stream.
