Third series for Liam Williams's Ladhood

Coming of age comedy to return

The BBC has ordered a third series of Liam Williams’s  coming-of-age comedy Ladhood.

Six new episodes will pick up where series two left off with young Liam (Oscar Kennedy) approaching the end of 6th form and eyeing up a potential place at a top university.

As always, the show straddles two timelines as the modern-day Williams looking back at his noughties adolescence in search of answers to his modern-day millennial angst.

The comic said: ‘I’m absolutely buzzing at the prospect of returning to the mid-2000’s again to explore more themes, emotions and half-forgotten sportswear brands.’

Series two was released on BBC Three’s iPlayer last month, costarring Samuel Bottomley, Aqib Khan and Shaun Thomas as young Liam’s school mates.

Josh Cole, head of comedy at programme-makers BBC Studios, said: ‘Liam is an extraordinary talent and in Ladhood has created a beautifully realised world we can all (painfully) relate to. He is a joy to work with and we are delighted the BBC has ordered a third series.’

Producer Joe Nunnery added: ‘It’s a privilege and a pleasure to make Ladhood with Liam and our exceptionally talented cast and crew. We’re very grateful to BBC Three and thrilled to have the opportunity to return to mid-noughties Garforth.’
