The Ricky Gervais Show will return for a third series next month on E4.

The animated series is based on the comedian’s podcasts with collaborators Stephen Merchant and Karl Pilkington. This is not Derek we hasten to add.

The cartoons will even feature unheard audio from the three stars but will not feature a Scooby snack.

The comedy brand that keeps on rolling, aka, Ricky Gervais says: ‘Karl is not only my best friend but also my gift to the world. This is my favourite series so far and it even features some previously unheard audio.’

Can you bear to read a quote from Channel 4’s Head of Comedy, Shane Allen…?

Of course, you can. Hit it Mr Allen: ‘A very welcome return to E4 of these comedy masters. Their flights of fancy and infectious banter are a joy as Stephen and Ricky delve into the inner workings of Karl Pilkington's oddly wired brain.’

This business will arrive in the US on HBO on 20th April and for us in May. Thanks a bunch.
