As the highly praised second series comes to an end tonight, it is announced today that BBC Three sitcom Josh has been commissioned for a third series by Shane Allen, Controller, BBC Comedy Commissioning, returning with six brand new episodes in 2017.
Written by Josh Widdicombe, Tom Craine with Henry Paker and directed by David Schneider (I'm Alan Partridge and The Day Today), the quirky comedy follows theahighs and lows of the eponymous Josh, an anxious old man trapped in an anxious young man's body.
Josh will once again be joined by the regular ensemble cast: his hopelessly selfish flatmates, Owen (Elis James) and Kate (Beattie Edmondson), plus the world's most annoying landlord, Geoff (Jack Dee). Cameos throughout the two series have included; Jennifer Saunders, Michael Ball, Miles Jupp, Emma Bunton, Tamzin Outhwaite, Romesh Ranganathan, The Chuckle Brothers and James Acaster.
Josh Widdicombe says: "I am delighted that the BBC has given me another opportunity to humiliate myself for six 30 minute episodes. We absolutely loved every moment of creating the second series and are so proud that so many people enjoyed it. My only hope for series 3 is the British public get to enjoy Elis James's wonderful torso again."
Watch Alex Brooker give Josh possibly the worst pep talk minutes before his live stand up DVD is recorded...

Following a sold-out 2015 autumn tour, Josh Widdicombe, that guy from the TV comedy shows with the curly hair, has announced some new UK tour dates for summer 2016.
Since he's been away from stand up Josh has been working hard on other things... but don't worry in his spare time he has found a lot of minor things to get annoyed about, and now he has a chance to talk about them on stage (in the form of jokes). If you have seen him before live or on TV and enjoyed yourself then this is the show for you. If you didn't like him then it probably isn't.
Since he was last on tour, Josh's Channel 4 show The Last Leg has gone from strength to strength and been nominated for various awards including a British Comedy Award and a Broadcast Award, while finally winning one at the Royal Television Society Awards. The series returned in 2016 with a two-part Australia special as well as an eight episode series this spring. The show has been commissioned for another series later this year, and the trio will also be heading to Rio for the 2016 Paralympics.
Josh's self-penned sitcom Josh aired on BBC Three and BBC One in November 2015 to much critical acclaim. A huge ratings success for both the BBC Three and BBC One transmissions, the sitcom is currently filming a highly anticipated second series due to air this autumn.

We are delighted to announce that as of 16th August, Josh Widdicombe will be the new host of BBC Radio 5 Live's hugely popular Saturday morning points for punditry show, Fighting Talk.
On his new role at the station he commented: 'I am delighted to be joining 5 Live and getting the chance to host a radio show I have been listening to for almost a decade. I won't let my record of never winning an episode of Fighting Talk cloud my judgement now I am in charge.'
Formerly a sports writer at the Guardian newspaper, Josh has had a remarkable impact on the comedy circuit since his debut gig in 2008 with him now considered one of the most in demand and highly regarded comedians in the UK for both his live stand up and TV work.
Josh's coveted XFM show will then move to Sundays at 10am and will still be available as a podcast.
