Good news, comedy fans! BBC Three have decided to renew Jack Whitehall’s hit comedy show Bad Education. (YAY!)
Some Girls and Bluestone 42 have also been re-commissioned by the BBC, along with the hilarious Bad Education. The show’s third series will start in autumn, while Some Girls and Bluestone 42 will return at a later date.
“BBC Three is at the heart of new comedy in the UK and is not only still on air, but thriving.” according to BBC Three Controller Zai Bennett. Talking about the BBC Three shows he added: “These four deliciously different and brilliantly written series and pilot demonstrate our ongoing commitment to bring our viewers even more cutting edge, exciting and most importantly of all, funny, comedy this year.”
Unfortunately, BBC Three was confirmed to close as a broadcast channel in 2015 and most of its programming will move to iPlayer.
Does promising new series of great shows make up for the closing of such a well-loved channel? Let us know what you think in the comments below!
