The new series of The Trip, starring Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon, will start filming in September.
The third series of the part-improvised comedy travelogue will be filmed in Spain. The duo will be visiting Cantabria, the Basque region, Aragon, Rioja, Castile-La Mancha and Andalusia. We hope, and assume, that the show will feature plenty of over-dinner banter and Michael Caine impressions from the pair.
Steve has said of his decision to agree to a third instalment of the Michael Winterbottom-directed show: “Having thought long and hard about yet another sojourn into culinary distractions and middle age, I have reluctantly agreed to Eviva Espana. I have a hole in my diary, there will be free food and accommodation and Rob Brydon is surprisingly good company. I also like Michael.”
The first series of The Trip covered Steve and Rob’s tour of the Lake District in 2010, and was followed by 2014’s The Trip to Italy. This new series will be moving from its previous home on the Beeb to air on Sky Atlantic. Time to invest in Now TV if you haven’t done so already…
