ITV2 has confirmed that Plebs, the multi-award-winning sitcom set in Roman times, is to return for a fourth series.

Filming begins today in Bulgaria on 8 brand new episodes.

The show has been recommissioned as over a million viewers regularly tuned in across the first three series, making it the highest rated British scripted comedy on multichannel television.

Plebs, described as a "a thoroughly modern comedy in an ancient setting", is written by Sam Leifer and Tom Basden. It stars Tom Rosenthal, Joel Fry and Ryan Sampson as three young men living in Rome who are "trying to get laid, hold down jobs and climb the social ladder".

Filming takes place at a studio in Bulgaria, with Leifer also directing the Rise Films production.

The channel says: "Casting and storylines will be confirmed nearer transmission in Spring 2018."

The first three series of the sitcom are available on DVD, and the popular original sound track is also available to buy.
