The forthcoming series of “Ladhood” (6x25’), the critically acclaimed coming-of-age BBC Three comedy series made by BBC Studios Comedy Productions, is set to conclude this summer, as announced by writer and creator Liam Williams on Twitter. “It's been a bittersweet privilege to make this final full series of ‘Ladhood’ with an unimprovable cast and crew and an excellent new director, Ruth Pickett. Thanks to everyone who's ever watched or contributed to the programme, not least producer Joe Nunnery for whose hard work and dedication I am almost inexpressibly grateful,” Williams said.
Josh Cole, Head of Comedy at BBC Studios, commented: “We’re so proud of this final series of ‘Ladhood.’ Liam has created such a special show, and this one is better than ever. Much like the end of school it’s never easy to say goodbye, but ‘Ladhood’ is going out on a high and will live on in our hearts - and more importantly, on iPlayer.”
Seb Barwell, Commissioning Editor, added: “‘Ladhood’ series three sees the joyous teenage larks and rueful mid-life reflections of previous series come together in a perfectly-executed climax that confirms Liam as one of the UK’s sharpest comic minds.”
In the third and final series, young Liam (Oscar Kennedy) stands on the threshold of adulthood, as he approaches the end of sixth form and eyes up a potential place at a top university. All he has to do is ace the interview, nail his exams, and not get side-tracked by the more exciting adventures on offer with his best mates.
“Ladhood” is a BBC Studios Comedy Production produced by Joe Nunnery and Executive Produced by Josh Cole, Gareth Edwards and Liam Williams. Seb Barwell is the Commissioning Editor for the BBC. Seasons one and two of the show are available to watch now on BBC iPlayer.
