The multi-award-winning sitcom Two Doors Down will return for a brand new series with six episodes and will have a new home as it transfers over to BBC One with filming taking place in the summer this year.
The much-loved sitcom has built a fanbase which has grown with each series with the most recent Christmas special attracting its highest audience to date with 2.8 million viewing the festive special; across 30 days on all screens, the highest since the show launched in 2013.
Co-creators Gregor Sharp and Simon Carlyle said: “We’re excited to be spreading our wings and lowering the tone as we introduce BBC One audiences to life in Latimer Crescent.”
Josh Cole, Head of Comedy and Steven Canny, Executive Producer, BBC Studios, said: “We couldn’t be more proud of the success story that is Two Doors Down. It’s an absolute joy to work on and loved by a large loyal fanbase that have embraced these families and neighbours as though their own over the years! We can’t wait to get going on series seven and look forward to the move to BBC One.”
Jon Petrie, Director of Comedy Commissioning at the BBC, says: “Two Doors Down continues on its understated march towards classic BBC sitcom status with the last series pulling in some of its highest viewing figures to date. We’re delighted to be doing more and are excited to see the show move to BBC One for a whole new legion of fans to enjoy.”
Last year’s Two Doors Down Christmas special which aired on BBC Two saw the neighbours test their friendship to the limit and we can’t wait to see if there will be another festive edition of the show.
