Steve Coogan Confirms There Will Be A Second Series Of This Time

Steve Coogan Confirms There Will Be A Second Series Of This Time

Good news Partridge fans/people with good taste in comedy - there's gonna be a second season of This Time with Alan Partridge.

The first series aired last February and saw the Norfolk DJ take on 'a heady mix of consumer affairs, current affairs, viewer interaction, highbrow interview and lightweight froth' in a sort of The One Show-style spoof.

Now, the main man Steve Coogan has confirmed we'll be getting a second series.

Speaking to Zoe Ball on the Radio 2 Breakfast Show, he said: "There'll be another series of This Time in the next 12 months, but there's a podcast starting next month."

Yes, not only do we get more This Time, we also have a Partridge podcast to tide us over in the meantime. Back of the net.

In an interview with Dave Berry on Absolute Radio, Coogan explained what we can expect from that and hinted we may get another documentary series too.

The 54-year-old said: "There is going to be more Partridge in 2020. There'll be another This Time though that won't be this year, that'll be probably next year. Then there might be a documentary series with Alan roving around Britain.

"But the next thing that's coming out is a podcast which is out next month, called From the Oast House with Alan Partridge. There's 18 of those and they're about 20 minutes each. They're very sort of one-on-one. If anyone wants Alan up close and personal in their own space then the podcast is an opportunity."


So it seems we're going to be absolutely spoilt on the Partridge front over the course of the next year.

It will be interesting to see what direction the second series of This Time take us too, with the first season coming to a close as the presenter was summoned to see BBC executives about his behaviour towards his co-host Jennie Gresham, who was excellently played by Susannah Fielding.

Coogan and writers Rob and Neil Gibbons will certainly be hard pushed to reach the high bar they set for themselves with series one, but I look forward to seeing them try.
