Will there be another series of Staged?
For now, there has been no official announcement from the BBC or the show’s cast regarding the return of Staged.
An announcement is likely to be made in the weeks following tomorrow night’s (Tuesday, June 21) finale.
As the series is set during the current coronavirus pandemic and in lockdown, a second series may largely depend on how the coronavirus outbreak is resolved.
The series follows the Good Omens acting duo and their friend Evans as they try to rehearse a performance of Luigi Pirandello’s Six Characters in
Search of an Author during the lockdown.
The first season premiered in early June, so fans can expect season two in summer 2021 if it is given the green light.
Express.co.uk will update this article when more information is available.
Staged star Sheen recently shared his thoughts on a possible second series.
Speaking on Jessie Ware’s podcast, Table Manners, Sheen said there was always the possibility there could more of Staged in the future.
“He’s filming a thing called Around the World in 80 Days or he was just before lockdown you presume he would go back to it and he will be all over the world.
“I’m here or in America or whatever, so there is no reason why we can’t continue that sort of idea that we are talking to each other because we are friends over a laptop.
“It’s possible we could do more if the idea behind it, the sort of through-line is there, then maybe.”
Fans have been sharing their love for the comedy series online ever since it premiered in June.
One fan tweeted: “Very late to this but have just binge-watched @michaelsheen and David Tennant in Staged on iPlayer and it’s truly truly wonderful and just what there should be more of during lockdown! #staged #iplayer #goodtv #bbc.”
