Congratulations, please – there’s good news for dubious London estate agents.
Stath Lets Flats has officially been confirmed for a third series, after the show won the Bafta for best scripted comedy earlier this year.
Channel 4 has announced that the comedy has been recommissioned for six new episodes, with Jamie Demetriou returning as the hapless letting agent Stath Charalambos as he faces rescuing the family business, Michael & Eagle.
Demetriou said: ‘This is lovely. I love Channel 4. Thanks so much for having us back for a series 3. Sorry the title is still hard to say. Love Jamie Demetriou from Stalph Les Flav.’
Meanwhile, his alter ego added: ‘Thank you so truly for this energetically and development news. I never seen something on Channel For (4) in my life, but someone told me they done a programme about people being embarrassed about their body. Which is a shame.
‘I’m proud of my body, even though my eyebrow is a bit too wide and I’m panickin’ it’s joinin’ to my head hair.’
Fiona McDermott, Head of Comedy at Channel 4, said: ‘Stath’s irrepressible and bewildering approach to life, love and business is just what the nation needs right now.
‘We’re so proud of Jamie and the team’s multiple award-success and delighted that we can celebrate this roster of incredible domestic talent by backing another series.’
And Ash Atalla, managing director of RoughCut TV, which produces the show, said: ‘So happy to be back making Stath 3 with the team after their stunning Bafta success. As long as things continue to go well, I’m right behind them.’
Back in July, Stath Lets Flats won best scripted comedy at the TV Baftas, as well as best male actor in a comedy and best writer of a comedy for Jamie Demetriou.
The show follows Stath, an incompetent Greek-Cypriot letting agent in London who works for his father.
Series three will see Stath trying to save the family business, all while managing his relationship with Katia and expecting his first child with Carole.
Meanwhile, Stath’s sister Sophie and his best friend Al will deal with the aftermath of declaring their feelings for each other – which we can’t imagine will go too smoothly.
The Big Flower Fight host Natasia Demetriou returns to play Sophie, while Al Roberts (Al), Christos Stergioglou (Vasos), Katy Wix (Carole), Kiell Smith-Bynoe (Dean) and Ellie White (Katia) are all confirmed for series three.
Stath Lets Flats series one and two are available to watch on All4.
