Zapped: series 3 air date announced

Dave’s popular sitcom, Zapped is set to return for a third series and the channel has now announced that the show will return next month…

The series follows everyman Brian (played by The Inbetweeners‘ James Buckley) who is whisked to the magical world of Munty and his attempts at getting back home. Over the years the cast has included the likes of Paul Kaye, Sylvester McCoy, Sally Phillips and Sharon Rooney.

The third series was announced earlier this year after the cliffhanger ending of series two. On the renewal, commissioner Pete Thornton said, “Zapped has now established itself as one of Dave’s most popular programmes, and I’m absolutely delighted to be returning to Munty for another series of dazzling comic invention, care of the creative heavyweights at Black Dog and Baby Cow [production companies], complimented by our incredibly talented cast.”

Executive producer Steve Coogan (yes, that Steve Coogan) added, “I can’t wait to pull up a chair in The Jug And The Other Jug, pour myself a Ginger Steamer and maybe risk a slice of Herman’s legendary fish pie as I rejoin my favourite Muntyites.”

Dave have now revealed that the series will return on Wednesday 17th October at 10pm so pencil that one into your diary.
