Peter Kay has revealed on Children In Need 2017 that his comedy Peter Kay’s Car Share is returning for a series finale.
Peter Kay had to apologise to fans earlier this year after he upset them over the decision to end his comedy Peter Kay’s Car Share.
The second series of Car Share ended with a cliffhanger when Kayleigh (played by Sian Gibson) confessed her love for John (played by Peter Kay).
“I am sorry I have upset people,” Peter Kay told presenter Becky Want. “Sian [Gibson, his co-star] put her phone on and had about 50 messages. And she said ‘what have you said, my phone’s gone mental?’.
“I just mentioned that that we weren’t doing another one. That’s just the truth. I didn’t mean to upset anybody. I didn’t think there would be petitions.”
Back in May, Kay said there would be no further episodes to the show.
Announcing on Friday’s Children In Need 2017 appeal show, Peter Kay revealed there will be a series finale to Car Share explaining what happened after Kayleigh confessed her love.
“We were completely overwhelmed by the response and even though we’ve no plans to write a third series we knew we couldn’t end the story there,” Peter said.
He also revealed this special teaser trailer:
Before then, BBC One will broadcast a special episode called Car Share: Unscripted which will follow John and Kayleigh home on their daily commute only the entire episode will be completely improvised.
Peter says: “We were always very fond of ad libbing around the script when we were filming the series so we decided to see what would happen if we took the script away and just relied on just our chemistry alone, reacting to whatever came on the radio.”
Car Share: Season Finale will air in 2018.
