In The Long Run set to return to Sky One on 22 July

21/05/2020

Sky original comedy In The Long Run will make a welcome return to Sky One and streaming service NOW TV for a third series, transporting us back to 1980s East London - the decade of shell-suits and turtlenecks. All episodes of the third instalment will be available to watch from 22 July.

Creator and executive producer Idris Elba is back on our screens as Walter Easmon, alongside wife Agnes (Madeline Appiah), younger brother Valentine (Jimmy Akingbola) and making her debut this series, Walter's mum (Ellen Thomas). Bill Bailey returns as Bagpipes with wife Kirsty (Kellie Shirley), work colleague Rajesh (Neil D'Souza) and Kobna (Sammy Kamara) back on the decks.

Idris Elba said: Nothing beats a funny story from someone who was there! I can't wait for viewers to see series three.

The third series of this semi-autobiographical Sky One comedy, loosely based on Idris' own childhood, sees the welcome arrival of Walter's mum from Sierra Leone with Walter desperate to impress. Bagpipes has a near death experience that makes him question the meaning of life. Valentine finally finds love and Kirsty sets up her own catering business all while Agnes gets suspicious as some developers start taking an interest in the Eastbridge Estate, threatening the very existence of the community.

Jon Mountague, Director of Comedy, Sky Studios, said: Our chests are puffed out with pride for the return of Idris Elba's award-winning In The Long Run'. Chapter 3 has more LoLs than ever and as we've come to expect, is shot through with family, community and togetherness.

In The Long Run is executive produced by Golden Globe and SAG winning Idris Elba for Green Door Pictures and Gina Carter for Sprout Pictures, also with Ana Garanito at Green Door as Associate Producer. Produced by Alex Walsh-Taylor, the six-part series is directed by Sandy Johnson and Ian Aryeh and written by Grace Ofori-Attah, Fraser Ayres, Shivani Vijayapalan and Jon Macqueen. The series was commissioned for Sky by commissioning editor Tilusha Ghelani and Director of Comedy, Sky Studios Jon Mountague, forming part of Sky's raft of original British comedy. In The Long Run is distributed internationally by NBCUniversal Global Distribution on behalf of Sky Studios.

Series 1, 2 and the Christmas Special of In The Long Run are available now to watch on Sky and NOW TV.
