The news was shared by Neil Gibbons, who has been writing for Partridge shows with Coogan, alongside his twin brother Rob, for more than a decade.

“YES!!” Gibbons wrote on Instagram, sharing a photo from the set of a clapperboard with the note: “That’s a wrap.” The slate reveals that filming on the show finished on Friday (December 18).

“On what to look forward to in the new season, the star explained: “We’re trying to set ourselves a task of having the stuff on-screen [with the chat show] and then have a kind of parallel unseen story that we get glimpses of, this parallel narrative of what’s going on in [Alan’s] private life and Jennie, his co-presenter’s, private life.
“And then, sort of, have those two things go parallel. We haven’t quite realised where it goes but we want it to end up in a strange and unexpected place. That’s all I can say.”
The confirmation comes after Coogan revealed last month that he’s planning on taking Partridge out on the road for a live tour in the near future.
In a five-star review of the first season of This Time with Alan Partridge, NME said: “Alan Partridge might have left the BBC under a cloud of shame, but his return is the complete opposite. It’s a slice of comedic gold and an early contender for the funniest show of the year.”
