Hapless letting agent Stath will be back on our screens next year, bringing a bit of welcome silliness to the housing market.
Channel 4 has commissioned a third series of the BAFTA award-winning comedy Stath Lets Flats featuring incompetent Greek-Cypriot letting agent Stath who constantly tries to prove himself a worthy heir to the family business – Michael & Eagle.
As he navigates London’s property market, Stath usually tries and fails to convince would-be tenants about the merits of often dubious properties.
Series three will pick up from the cliff-hanger ending of series two, as Stath is faced with rescuing the firm and his relationship with Katia, while expecting his first child with Carole.
Meanwhile his sister, Sophie, and best friend, Al, deal with the fallout of finally declaring their feelings for each other.
Fiona McDermott, head of comedy at Channel 4, says: “Stath’s irrepressible and bewildering approach to life, love and business is just what the nation needs right now.
“We’re so proud of Jamie and the team’s multiple award-success and delighted that we can celebrate this roster of incredible domestic talent by backing another series”.
Writer-performer and comedian Jamie Demetriou won best male actor in a comedy, best writer of a comedy and the programme itself won the award for best scripted comedy at this year’s BAFTA ceremony.
He adds: “This is lovely. I love Channel 4. Thanks so much for having us back for a series three. Sorry the title is still hard to say. Love Jamie Demetriou from Stalph Les Flav.”
