Sara Pascoe's Guessable? is returning for a third series, British Comedy Guide can exclusively reveal.

John Kearns reprises his role as co-host on the Comedy Central parlour game panel show, with Alan Davies and Darren Harriott also returning as team captains.

Filming on twelve new episodes has just finished, with the series set to air next year. Guests include Jason Manford, Rachel Parris, Lucy Beaumont, Henning Wehn, Maisie Adam and Miles Jupp, with several new games added to the format.

Made by Tuesday's Child (Ghost Bus Tours), Guessable? was Comedy Central's second highest-rated launch for an original UK commission when it first aired last year.

Audiences for the second series, which aired in spring, were down on the first, averaging about 125,000 overnight viewers over the 12 episodes. Nevertheless, Guessable? remains one of the channel's best performing UK shows, repeated on Comedy Central Extra and Channel 5.

The third series' director is once again Ollie Bartlett and the senior producer is Emily Pickthall (Never Mind The Buzzcocks), with Hana White (Backstage With Katherine Ryan) and Will Brown (There's Something About Movies) also producing. The executive producers are Steph Harris and Jordan Read.

Pascoe is currently hosting the second series of Comedians Giving Lectures on Dave with a third to follow, and takes over hosting BBC Two's Great British Sewing Bee from Joe Lycett in December.

She will shortly begin hosting a new, undisclosed podcast on Audible, having recently produced the comedy-drama Car Crash for the audio streaming service, a ten-part rom-com from Eddie Robson starring Aimee Lou Wood and Alfred Enoch; and is also working on a non-fiction book about murder, and a novel.
