BBC Three have announced that they have commissioned a second series of mockumentary sitcom This Country.
Later this year, cameras will return to the Cotswold village of Northleach to further explore the lives of cousins Kerry and ‘Kurtan’ Mucklowe.
Writers and stars Daisy May and Charlie Cooper said, ‘we are beyond thrilled to have a second series. We wrote something else in case this wasn’t recommissioned which ended up being exactly the same plot as the BBC drama Life On Mars. So this second series is a godsend really as we can’t do anything else.’
Controller of Comedy Commissioning Shane Allen added, ‘it’s been a pure joy to see Daisy and Charlie get the recognition their talents deserve with this show. It has been an instant hit with the audience and they’ve got cracking ideas for the series ahead.’
Meanwhile BBC Three Controller Damian Kavanagh said, ‘I’m delighted we’re going back to the Cotswolds to catch up with the latest antics from Kerry and Kurtan. Series one was a huge hit with the BBC Three audience and we are excited to bring them back for more.’
