Meet The Richardsons gets a third series

More domestic strife from Jon Richardson and Lucy Beaumont

Meet The Richardsons is to return for a third series, the Dave TV channel has announced today.

The show, offering a fictionalised look at the married life of comedians Jon Richardson and Lucy Beaumont, will be back for ten new 40-minute episodes.

That’s two more than in the second series, currently airing on Thursday nights, and four more than the first, which ran in 2020.

Beaumont writes the show with Tim Reid, who previously worked on Car Share. 

She said: ‘Oh god; I’ve got to stay married to him another year.’

Meet The Richardsons is currently the most popular show on the channel. The episode which aired on April 22, the last for which figures are available, attracted 648,000 viewers within its first seven days, 70 per cent more than the second-rated show, a QI rerun.

It has previously featured several celebrity guest stars, including Rob Beckett, Alan Carr and Johnny Vegas.

The recommission  from programme-makers Second Act comes as Dave announces a swathe of comedy programmes today, also including Richard Ayoade’s Question Team; Tom Allen’s The Island; David Mitchell’s survival show Outsiders and British As Folk with Fern Brady, Darren Harriott and Ivo Graham.
