After the cliffhanger at the end of series 2 it is no surprise that Man Like Mobeen is to return for a much anticipated third series.

The commission comes following the success of the recent second series – particularly with younger audiences which saw 63% of the audience under 35 – well above the average for BBC Three. It will start filming in Birmingham later this year.

Man Like Mobeen, written and created by Guz Khan and Andy Milligan, follows Mobeen (Guz Khan), friends Eight (Tez Ilyas) and Nate (Tolu Ogunmefun), and little sister Aks (Duaa Karim), from Small Heath.

Guz Khan, said, “Woah, series three of Man Like Mobeen?! This is dope news, we have a chance to create even more authentic stories for the people. I can’t wait to get cracking, providing Mobeen and me can stay out of prison, does anyone know a good solicitor?”

Myfanwy Moore, Head of Comedy at Tiger Aspect, added, “I’m so glad we all get to hang out with Mobeen and the gang again, and particularly now - it’s liberating to be able to make a comedy show that talks about things other shows don’t. Thanks to the brilliant Guz Khan and the team, and their genuine love for Small Heath and Birmingham, we can’t wait to show people what the crew are up to next.”

Shane Allen, Controller Comedy Commissioning at the BBC, said, “Guz and the team capture the spirit and voice of the Small Heath world it depicts and the issues that are important to that community. It’s a comedy which deftly shifts between hilarity and poignancy in bringing us this rich character world and their misadventures.”

Man Like Mobeen is a Tiger Aspect production written and created by Guz Khan and Andy Milligan. 

The producer is Gill Isles, the director is Ollie Parsons, the executive producers are David Simpson and Myfanwy Moore. The Commissioning Editor for the BBC is Kate Daughton.
