The BBC has ordered a third series of the hit comedy series Miranda.
The BBC has ordered a third series of the hit comedy series Miranda. The comedy stars Miranda Hart and the recent second series proved to be a hit for BBC Two with audiences peaking at 4.3 million viewers. The series also won good reviews from critics. However, it appears as though the comedy is about to become the subject of a bidding war with BBC One and BBC Two both keen to air the new series.
“We are delighted that Miranda will be continuing to create fabulous comedy for the BBC,” a spokesperson said. “As yet there have not been detailed discussions about which channel she may appear on.” – Cheryl Taylor, BBC’s comedy commissioner
Starring alongside Miranda Hart in the comedy are Patricia Hodge, Tom Ellis, Sarah Hadland and Sally Phillips – all of whom are expected to return for the new series.
