Man Down is to return for a third series, Channel 4 has announced.

The sitcom, written by and starring Greg Davies, follows the misadventures of Dan, a childish idiot trapped in an adult’s life whose world is consistently staggering towards collapse.

Averaging ratings of 1.5 million viewers, the show returned to critical acclaim earlier this year, despite the death of cast member Rik Mayall shortly after the second series was confirmed.

Also starring Mike Wozniak and Roisin Conaty, the third installment is set to reach screens next year.

Nerys Evans, Channel 4’s Deputy Head of Comedy said: “We’re delighted to have Greg back with the Man Down team. We are in awe of quite how many utterly humiliating situations he’s willing to put himself through for the love of comedy. But we’re definitely in no mood to ask him to stop!”

Greg Davies added: “I’m so thrilled that Channel 4 want me to spend the next sixth months locked in my home crying over a keyboard in my pants. The characters in Man Down series three are really going to pay for their generosity…”
