Two more series for Russell Howard & Mum: Road Trip

Comedy Central recommissions comic's travelogue

Comedy Central has commissioned two new series of Russell Howard & Mum: Road Trip.

The new episodes will also be increased in length from 30 to 60 minutes, as Howard and mum Ninette voyage around Northern Europe and Asia. 

The news comes before the second series has even aired. It is due out later this year, with the third series in 2018 and the fourth the following year. 

Louise Holmes, vice president of programming for Comedy Central UK  said: ‘Russell is a comedy genius who can create endless humour out of any situation he finds himself in.

'The huge success of the first series of Russell Howard & Mum: USA Roadtrip has shown that his unique relationship with his mum, Ninette, has captivated the nation and we’re looking forward to more of their hilarious endeavours across both Europe and Asia.’

Comedy Central said the first series achieved the highest ever audience of 16-34s for a UK commission on the channel.

James Taylor, who is executive producer with programme-makers Avalon, said: ‘We’re delighted with the support from Comedy Central and, most importantly, to be sending Russell and Ninette into a host of new unusual places and situations to see what unfolds.’

Howard said: ‘I can't wait to travel the world with mum again. I'm glad everyone enjoys her brain as much as I do!’
