Plebs the ITV2 comedy set in Ancient Rome, is returning for a third series with a host of new cameos as well as the old favourites we’ve grown to love.
So far this year, British television has been dominated by drama. Excellent drama at that. But one genre with seems to be the most difficult for channels to crack, is scripted comedy. ITV in particular have this problem.
The main channel only has Birds of a Feather and Benidorm, and both those air at the start of the year meaning for around 10 months of the year, ITV are a comedy-free channel.
As for sister channel ITV2, there's only The Keith Lemon Sketch Show and Plebs, which is returning for a third series.
