End of the road for This Country

Third series to be its last

This Country is set to end after its upcoming third series, the BBC Three has announced.

The multi-award-winning comedy, created by siblings Daisy May and Charlie Cooper, will return on February 17.

But the channel has also revealed that these six episodes will be the last.

The Coopers also confirmed the news at a screening of new episodes at the BFI in London tonight, saying the comedy had come to a natural end.

The news comes six months after This Country star Michael Sleggs died at the age of 33.  The comedy is set to pay tribute to him in the forthcoming final season.

This Country launched in 2017 and the following year scooped a Bafta and a Royal Television Academy award.
