Steve Coogan to return for new Alan Partridge series

OHMYGOSSIP — Steve Coogan will return as Alan Partridge for a new comedy series.
The 58-year-old comic will reprise his alter ego for ‘And Did Those Feet’, a six-part show following the hapless broadcaster as he settles back into life in the UK following a year living in Saudi Arabia.
An announcement from the BBC teased: “What begins as a documentary about homecoming soon morphs into something more personal, as Alan realises that the happiness he thought he’d feel at being back in Norwich just hasn’t materialised. Something’s missing.”
Alan will then go “on a quest to understand his funk” exploring topics such as home life, work, relationships and nature and how they “play a part in keeping us funk-free”.
The synopsis added: “And if he ends up being seen as a mental health champion for the middle-aged, who’s also a good fit to present other issues-led documentary strands, so be it.”
A statement from Alan himself explained how he “felt incomplete” living in the middle east.
He said: “The kingdom of Saudi Arabia enjoys extensive oil and natural gas reserves, but has also seen economic growth in other areas such as agricultural production, retail trade, construction and transport.
“It directs some $69 billion to military expenditure each year. And yet despite all that, I somehow felt incomplete.”
The BBC are delighted with the new series.
The network’s director of comedy commissioning, Jon Petrie, said: “Alan Partridge is the most iconic comedy character in the UK.
“The wonderful Steve Coogan and Neil and Rob Gibbons continue to innovate and create an even richer world for Alan to inhabit.
“This unflinching look at the state of the UK through Alan’s eyes promises to add more brilliance to the Partridge canon.”
