The BBC has confirmed that the next series of Miranda will move to BBC One. There had been increasing speculation that the popular comedy, starring Miranda Hart, would be promoted to BBC One. The first two seasons of Miranda have aired on BBC Two were its audience has topped four million viewers and has won over critics. At the recent British Comedy Awards the sitcom won three prizes.
“Miranda’s been a tremendous hit with audiences on BBC Two. I’m very glad she’s let us persuade her to move to BBC One, where we believe we can build an even bigger following.” – George Entwistle of BBC Vision.
The third season of Miranda, which Hart also writes, will start later this year for broadcast on BBC One. At the British Comedy Awards Hart was named Best Actress and Miranda won Best New TV Comedy.
