Mid Morning Matters with Alan Partridge Series 3? The Trip Series 4?
Sky has cancelled the Steve Coogan comedies with comedy chief Jon Mountague confirming that there are ‘no immediate plans’ to renew either series, though they may be resurrected in the future, per RadioTimes:
Mountague told RadioTimes.com there were no immediate plans to bring back either show – but he is keen for them to return at some point.
Sky Atlantic comedy The Trip – which sees versions of Coogan and Rob Brydon engage in an impression-filled restaurant tour – aired earlier this year with The Trip to Spain. This followed the BBC series The Trip and The Trip to Italy.
“The beauty of it is that it could go anywhere,” said Mountague. “They could travel anywhere or it could be as local as Wales. [Director] Michael Winterbottom and I talk all the time and I would like there to be a fourth series.”
Mountague added that Coogan also had no immediate plan to bring back Alan Partridge show Mid Morning Matters which has run for two series on Sky, the latter finishing in March last year, but that he is hopeful of more.
With the cancellation door apparently not completely locked and bolted, stay tuned to find out whether Mid Morning Matters and The Trip resurrect in future years…
