The much loved modern sketch show Famalam is returning for season three. 

Fans of the show were unsure whether they would be met with another season of the BAFTA winning comedy show but BBC Three took to twitter to reveal it’s coming back on Sunday (August 23).

Not only is the show returning for another season, it has also been given air-time for a Christmas special. The tweet was accompanied by a video, giving fans a sneak peak of the new season, showcasing the return of some of the much loved characters from previous episodes.

The shows writer and producer, Akemnji Ndifornyen, says: “Going for a three-peat! Excited to bring this beast back for another side splitting run! Third time’s the charm!”

Shane Allen, Controller of Comedy Commissioning, says: “Famalam goes from strength to strength in keeping the modern day sketch show flag flying high with its super-talented cast, pin sharp social commentary and ideas that poke fun in all directions.”

For those who are not up to date with the show just yet, season one and two are now up on BBC IPlayer for viewing.

Season three of Famalam airs this Sunday exclusively online on BBC iPlayer.
