Some bloody wonderful news in the world of TV this week because we’ve just got word that hilarious BBC parenting sitcom Motherland will be returning to screens next month for its third season. YAS!
Starring Anna Maxwell Martin (who you’re probably more used to seeing as Line Of Duty’s no-nonsense Patricia Carmichael), Motherland will resume on BBC2 at 9pm on Monday 10th May.
It’s looking like it’ll be a case of watching each episode weekly rather than the whole lot appearing on iPlayer ready for a weekend binge – past seasons have had six 30-minute episodes so we’ll expect the same this time.
For anyone new to the BBC show, it follows a gang of British school mums (and one stay-at-home dad) through the highs and lows of raising kids in today’s middle-class world. There’s storylines about everything from PTA fundraisers to weekly swim classes, and it’s fantastically funny and relatable as its written by Sharon Hogan.
We place it up there with the likes of Catastrophe, Workin’ Moms and The Let Down. Bring on May 10th!
And in the meantime, you can watch season one on Netflix (season two is being added on May 11th)…
