Channel four picks up Catastrophe for two more series
The brilliant UK comedy Catastrophe starring and written by Rob Delaney and Sharon Horgan has been renewed by Channel 4 for a third and fourth series, with the next run of episodes due to air in 2017. The stars made the following statement...
"We are thrilled to be making a third series of Catastrophe. Rob and Sharon are a blast to spend time with. And we’re not talking about ourselves in the third person, we’re talking about the characters. We’re eager to breathe life back into Rob and Sharon. Okay, now we are talking about us.
"In the first series Rob and Sharon went through a lot (us) and even more in the second series (back to the characters). We’re looking forward to putting Rob and Sharon (both us and the characters) through further pain for your enjoyment (now we’re talking about you)." - Channel 4
Channel 4's Head of Comedy Phil Clarke added:
"I am thrilled to commission a third and fourth series of the multi award-winning Catastrophe. It’s a welcome return for the brave, razor edged, excruciatingly honest and painfully funny portrayal of a modern, long term relationship." - Channel 4
The second season has recently been made available on Amazon.
