Alan Partridge to return in This Time with Alan Partridge

After waiting all of 2018 for his return it has finally been confirmed that Steve Coogan will reprise Alan Partridge in a new BBC show called This Time with Alan Partridge – a six-part series that will be a comedic take on shows like The One Show and This Morning – in which Partridge will be tackling the big issues of the day including the #MeToo movement!

When asked about what we can expect from Alan Partridge this time around Coogan stated that Alan has come a long way since it first saw life more than 25 years ago: “He’s sometimes ignorant and prejudiced but he tries to do the right thing. Early on we made him too predictably conservative…a bit like shooting fish in a barrel – a caricature. Whereas now we do him as someone who realises that he’s got to get ‘on message’. He’s struggling to do the thing he’s supposed to.”
