"When it ended more than three years ago viewers were hopeful it would come back but it always looked unlikely because of Miranda's busy work schedule. But all parties have come to an agreement and it'll be back later this year if all goes to plan."
However, writing on Twitter this morning, Hart said: "Don't know where this came from, it's news to me. Have thought about it but that's all."
She later added: "To confirm re The Sun, I don't know where it came from that there's a new series of Miranda. I write & play her & she's still on honeymoon!"
Replying to Hart's correction, co-star Sally Phillips posted on Twitter: "Boo. Shame."
First shown in 2009 on BBC Two before moving to BBC One, the comedy concluded on New Year's Day 2015 with the second of a two-part finale special that saw Miranda's eponymous character marry long-term love interest Gary, played by Tom Ellis. The final episodes of the show saw audiences of around 7 million viewers per episode. Most other television comedy struggles to reach as many as 2 million viewers in overnight figures.
Running for just three series before its concluding specials, the sitcom followed Miranda's hapless character through life and love. It also starred Sarah Hadland as Miranda's best friend, colleague, and regular foil, Stevie; with Patricia Hodge as her pushy mother, Penny; and Sally Phillips as school friend Tilly.
Hart most recently hosted one-off Channel 4 show Miranda Does Christmas and The Royal Variety Performance, which saw her appearing in character alongside Hadland, Hodge and Phillips in a series of on-stage sketches. She is currently filming new Hollywood film The Nutcracker And The Four Realms, playing Dew Drop Fairy.
Sally Phillips has taken on a variety of high-profile comedy roles since the conclusion of Miranda, including Tim Vine Travels Through Time, Zapped and Henry IX. She was a contestant in the last series of Taskmaster, and can currently be seen in the new series of Trollied.
Tom Ellis has been almost exclusively been filming US fantasy drama Lucifer since the conclusion of the sitcom. He has starred in the titular role in over 40 episodes of the show, which launched in 2015.
A complete DVD box set of all Miranda episodes produced to date is now available.
