Him & Her’s Becky and Steve to finally leave the flat!
BBC Three and Big Talk Productions has announced the commission of fourth and final series of 6 episodes of award winning comedy Him & Her.
The series starring Russell Tovey and Sarah Solemani as the loved-up yet hygienically challenged couple, Steve and Becky, has seen Him & Her become the most successful sitcoms launched on BBC Three to date since its launch in 2010.
The series has won a Royal Television Award for Best Comedy Performance by Sarah Solemani and Russell Tovey and received a Breakthrough Talent nod at the 2012 BAFTA TV Awards for Stefan Golaszewski.
Writer Stefan Golaszewski returns to write the final series which will follow Becky and Steve as we see them leave the flat for the first time, for Laura and Paul’s wedding. Richard Laxton, who has directed all 18 episodes to date, will also return to helm the final series that he directed the pilot for in 2010 with Big Talk CEO Kenton Allen and Lyndsay Robinson producing.
Writer Stefan Golaszewski says: “After three series in Steve and Becky’s bedsit, we’re moving them into the outside world as we reach the final chapter of their story. It’s been a great few years and I feel incredibly lucky to have worked with such a talented team.”
Kenton Allen says: “Stefan’s brilliant dissection of young love and all the problems that come with it have given us four series of perfectly realised writing, acting and technical achievement. We’re so proud of H&H and think it will stand the ultimate test of time and I can’t wait for audiences to join Steve and Becky to witness the wedding of Laura, one of the most appalling characters on Television for a very long time.”
Him and Her starts filming over the summer to transmit later in the year on BBC Three.
