‘Alan Partridge’s Mid-Morning Matters’ to return in 2015

New series and one-off "hard-hitting documentary special" will both air on Sky Atlantic

Alan Partridge’s Mid-Morning Matters is to return for a new series in 2015.

The series will be written by Steve Coogan alongside Neil Gibbons and Rob Gibbons and will be followed by a one-off “hard-hitting documentary special.” Both the special and the series will be broadcast by Sky Atlantic.

“I am both thrilled, humbled, gladdened and excited to be bringing Mid Morning Matters back to Sky Atlantic,” said Partridge.

“I expect those who doubted its success feel suitably chastened to never again doubt the wisdom of my career choices and to say nothing in response unless their comments are wholly supportive and positive. I hope I’ve made myself clear… thank you, let’s leave it there.”

Meanwhile, a sequel to Alan Partridge: Alpha Papa is in the works, according to the film’s producer. Henry Normal recently revealed that there are plans to release a follow-up Partridge film, which was released in 2013.
