Mrs. Brown's Boys recommissioned for a third series
Well this will we hope please most of you. Not only is Mrs Brown's Boys returning to BBC One this Christmas with a second series straight on its heels, a third series has already been commissioned before the second one has even gone out!
Originally a theatrical production, Mrs Brown's Boys is created, written by and stars Brendan O'Carroll as misbehaving matriarch Agnes Brown.
"What an extraordinary Christmas present," says Brendan, "The BBC must be mad! To allow us to dress up and play again is an extraordinary gift and we genuinely don't take it lightly. We're overwhelmed with the support of the audience and hopefully when they see what we've done with the second series they'll see that maybe the BBC is not totally mad."
When aired earlier this year, the series one viewing figures peaked at more than four million.
Danny Cohen the Controller of BBC One adds, "Mrs Brown's Boys is a joyful, laugh-out-loud comedy that I'm delighted to have on BBC One. It's great news for us that we are extending our deal to a third series."
