Murder in Successville to Return for a Third Series

The clues were there, with talent tweeting and live streaming from the set, but today the BBC have confirmed that there will be a third series of Murder In Successville on BBC Three.

Filming has already begun on the third series of BBC Three's unique improv comedy format, Murder In Successville with Tom Davis back as DI Sleet to solve more crimes against the world of celebrity in Successville.


DI Sleet is a hapless yet loveable detective investigating a crime. Each episode a guest celebrity joins him to solve the crime, without a script to follow and no idea what awaits them.

The series will return with six more episodes this year, and so far his rookie recruits include Professor Green, Richard Osman, and Reggie Yates, with more names set to be announced soon.


The new run follows two series broadcast in 2015 and 2016, both of which won considerable critical and audience acclaim. Speaking about the new series, Tom Davis said:</
