Filming has started for Mandy's third series.

Starring, written and directed by Diane Morgan, the comedy will return in 2024 for six further 15-minute episodes.

Tom Basden, Mark Silcox, Roger Sloman, Alistair Green, Michael Spicer, Jackie Clune and Yuriko Kotani all return for Series 3, which sees the eponymous antihero "battle her own personal cost-of-living crisis in a number of short-lived, ill-thought-through and poorly-paid jobs".

Michelle Greenidge also returns as Mandy's best friend, mentor and nail clinician, Lola.

New cast joining the series include Paul Ready (Motherland), Beverley Callard (Coronation Street), Nathan Foad (Our Flag Means Death) and Robbie Gee (Black Ops).

Diane Morgan says: "All the quotes used in TV press releases like this are written by Chat GPT now. This one certainly is. When you're writing and directing and performing in something you can't waste time thinking of some pointless quote just to show off. No one reads beyond the first words anyway; because they just repetitively say how thrilled and excited everyone is. No one's reading this now, are they? Only a fool would do that. Come on, there must be a book you could be reading now instead of this nonsense."

Josh Cole, Head of Comedy at BBC Studios says: "We are thrilled and excited to be returning to Mandy with the peerless Diane Morgan."

The series is a co-production between BBC Studios and Witchcraft Industries.
