Story by Jack Foley

MATT LeBlanc comedy series Episodes has been renewed for a third season by the BBC and Showtime.

The show, which plays for the former Friends luminary playing a fictionalised version of himself, will return in 2013 for a nine-episode run.

Stephen Mangan and Tamsin Greig also star in the comedy, which essentially follows the misfortunes of a British married writing couple who head over to the US for a largely-reworked American version of their UK programme.

Although the show performed modestly in the US during its second season, it remains a critical favourite and is also a popular addition to BBC’2 comedy line-up.
