While Miranda Hart is currently denying us a further series, Michaela Coel has announced that inspiration has struck and there will be a third series of Chewing Gum!
Multi-award-winning Michaela had said she had “reached a creative peak” where her character Tracey was concerned and that we’d all have to survive on just two series of the E4 sitcom.
But a third series will now go into production later this year, although Michaela will be bringing some other writers on board, “because I don’t want to die” she explained to the Times paper.
Michaela described the process of making Chewing Gum as: “a beautiful catastrophe. I am running around like a headless chicken. I don’t sleep because I am writing. It’s manic. I love it – I don’t know if I would want it any other way, but I’ve learnt from working with proper people… they really prepare in advance.”
Describing herself as a “control freak” Michaela said she often rewrites the scripts during filming: “You can always make it better, can’t you? Other people draw a line and I can’t.”
We can’t wait for a new, chaotic, series of Chewing Gum!
