BBC One has renewed Still Open All Hours for Series 3, star Sir David Jason has revealed.
While the BBC has yet to officially announce the renewal, Jason told The Mirror that the high-rated sitcom will return for a third outing:
“We beat practically everything on television in the ratings. We beat everybody. The reaction is amazing. “We’re doing more – be there or be square.”
I think we get seven million viewers and 30% of the audience. You used to huge figures, but seven million is unbelievable.
“The thing about Still Open All Hours is that it’s a show you can watch with your entire family and you’re not going to be worried about too much sex, so you feel safe.
