The Misadventures Of Romesh Ranganathan is returning for a third series, the comedian has revealed.

Location details for the BBC Two travelogue's new episodes have yet to be disclosed.

However Ranganathan, who is making his Have I Got News For You hosting debut on Friday, told Adam Buxton on his podcast: "I'm doing another series of the travel show".

The format, which launched in 2018, has previously seen him visit Columbia, Mongolia, Zimbabwe and Bosnia and Herzegovina.

A spokesperson for Rumpus Media, which makes the show, told British Comedy Guide that they were unable to confirm "anything more at this stage".

Specialists in comedian-fronted travel series, having also worked with Nish Kumar, Joel Dommett, Tony Robinson and Henning Wehn, Rumpus's next such project is the company's first Netflix commission, Perfectly Legal, following Sue Perkins as she explores Latin America.

Ranganathan has postponed his stand-up tour, The Cynic's Mixtape, until January because of the coronavirus pandemic, except for two London Eventim Apollo dates, rescheduled for September 26th and 27th.

The prolific comedian's focus group series, The Ranganation, featuring his mother Shanti, returns to BBC Two on Sunday 10th May, another format adjusted for home-filming; and Rob And Romesh Vs, in which he and fellow stand-up Rob Beckett compete with professional athletes and a variety of entertainers in their chosen discipline, returns to Sky One for a second series on Tuesday.

Meanwhile, The Reluctant Landlord star has piloted a second semi-autobiographical sitcom. Shot in November for BBC One, Parental Guidance co-stars Amanda Abbington as his wife and Guz Khan as his younger brother.

Co-written with Max Davis, the family comedy is based on the pair's 2017 Radio 2 pilot of the same name.

Further details on Series 3 of The Misadventures Of Romesh Ranganathan will be revealed in due course.
