BBC Three’s Him and Her gets second series

BBC Three hit comedy Him and Her has been recommissioned after a successful first series.

The comedy, which stars Russell Tovey and Sarah Solemani has proved popular with audiences, attracting a series average of 600,000 viewers to BBC Three. The BBC has said that Him and Her is BBC Three’s most successful ever sitcom launch.

 

BBC Three controller Danny Cohen said today “Him and Her was beautifully written and brilliantly performed. It went on to become BBC Three’s most successful ever sitcom launch. I’m delighted it’s coming back for a second series.”

 

Big Talk Productions, will continue to produce the show. Kenton Allen, Chief Executive of Big Talk Productions said “The tremendous support that BBC Three has given to a lo-fi romantic comedy in which nothing much ever happens has been amazing. We are delighted that their faith has been repaid with a brilliant reaction from audience and critics alike and we can’t wait to return to the tea, toast and unwashed bed linen of series 2 to enjoy the further adventures of Steve and Becky.”

 

Filming is due to begin in 2011 and it is expect to air later next year.
