It seems the Christmas gossip is coming thick and fast right now! It has been announced that Ben Elton’s Comedy “Upstart Crow” is due to return for a new season and a Christmas special for 2017.
We know, we know. Christmas 2016 is still a few months away left alone 2017!
The William Shakespeare based sitcom which followed him as he makes a name for himself in London whilst trying to maintain a family life in Stratford Upon Avon. The majority of the current series has used plots from the works of Shakespeare and this is expected to be the key theme in the new series which will contain 7 episodes (and of course a Christmas special!) .
Talking about the new series, Ben Elton said:
“Making a sitcom for the BBC is the holy grail of British comedy writing. I am absolutely thrilled that Upstart Crow has earned a second series and am sorry for some of the things I thought about the Bard while studying for my English Lit O Level.”
