Good news for fans of quirky humor and the comedic brilliance of Diane Morgan—filming for the third series of "Mandy" is officially underway. This time, Diane takes on the roles of writer, director, and star, promising another dose of micro-aggressive adventures and offbeat humor.
The Return of Mandy
In "Mandy," Diane Morgan plays the role of the nation's hero of the zero-hours economy, Mandy. The new series continues to follow Mandy as she navigates a never-ending series of short-lived, ill-conceived, and poorly paid jobs, all while battling her personal cost-of-living crisis.
Joining Mandy on Her Journey
Mandy's trusty friend, mentor, and nail clinician, Lola, portrayed by Michelle Greenidge ("Code 404"), will be right by her side as she embarks on the quest for an aspirational lifestyle, complete with prize-winning Doberman pinchers and magic eye pictures on every wall.
A Star-Studded Lineup
Series three of "Mandy" introduces a fresh cast, adding more flavor to the eccentric world of Mandy. Notable names joining the fun include Paul Ready ("Motherland"), Beverley Callard ("Coronation Street"), Nathan Foad ("Our Flag Means Death"), and Robbie Gee ("Black Ops").
The returning cast members from previous series include Tom Basden ("Here We Go"), Mark Silcox ("Man Like Mobeen"), Roger Sloman ("Nuts in May"), Alistair Green ("The Great"), Michael Spicer ("The Room Next Door"), Jackie Clune ("Motherland"), and Yuriko Kotani ("Pls Like").
