Diane Morgan returns as Mandy, battling through her own personal cost of living crisis.
The BBC have announced that Diane Morgan (Cunk on Earth) is hard at work on a another series of the hilarious Mandy. Six more 15-minute episodes will see the character in a further run of micro-aggressive adventures.
As before, she’s joined by her friend, mentor and nail clinician Lola, played by Michelle Greenidge (Doctor Who) as she navigates her way through the turbulence of her quest for the ultimate aspirational lifestyle. That’s one where she breeds prize-winning Doberman pinchers and has a magic eye picture on every wall.
Alongside Morgan and Greenidge, the show’s returning cast are Tom Basden, Mark Silcox, Roger Sloman, Alistair Green, Michael Spicer, Jackie Clune and Yuriko Kotani.
For series 3, there’s a Motherland reunion as Paul Ready appears. Other new additions include Beverley Callard (Coronation Street), Nathan Foad (Our Flag Means Death) and Robbie Gee (Black Ops).
Diane Morgan wisely says:
“All the quotes used in TV Press releases like this are written by Chat GPT now. This one certainly is. When you’re writing and directing and performing in something you can’t waste time thinking of some pointless quote just to show off. No one reads beyond the first words anyway; because they just repetitively say how thrilled and excited everyone is. No one’s reading this now, are they? Only a fool would do that. Come on, there must be a book you could be reading now instead of this nonsense.”
Mandy series 3 is a BBC Studios Comedy/Witchcraft Industries co-production for BBC Two and iPlayer, written, directed by and starring Diane Morgan. The series producer is Kenny Tanner, executive producer is Ben Caudell.
You can catch up with the first two series of Mandy on BBC iPlayer.
