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...
