Channel 4 today announced at its Upfronts 2017 event for the advertising industry, that it will recommission its hit show SAS: Who Dares Wins for a third series which will begin filming next year.
The announcement comes off the back of the end of series two, which was another hit for the Channel, attracting an audience of 2.3million per episode.
The series drew an impressive 17% share of 16-34 year old viewers, outperforming Channel 4’s slot average by 29% for the key young demographic.
The series will again be commissioned by John Hay. Head of Specialist Factual and will be executive produced by Colin Barr, Creative Director of Minnow Films.
John Hay. Head of Specialist Factual, Channel 4: ““I love this series – it pushes the limits of reality television, reveals a secret world, talks honestly about mental health, loss and modern masculinity, looks like a feature film, makes me laugh and cry and attracts a massive audience. And if that recipe doesn’t deserve a recommission, nothing does. I’m delighted it’s become a mainstay of the schedule – all credit to the brilliant team at Minnow who make it.” (C4)
