Cuckoo returns with 2 more series

Hit BBC Three sitcom Cuckoo has been recommissioned for a further two series, taking it to at least five series in length. All the cast are due to return for the new runs.

British Comedy Guide, 4th April 2016

But a lot of viewers will have switched off wondering: 'What on earth was that supposed to be about?'
