My Mad Fat Diary

My Mad Fat Diary will return for a third and final series it has been confirmed.

Filming is now underway on the series which will feature 3 60-minute episodes. The show stars BAFTA-nominated Sharon Rooney, Jodie Comer, Jordan Murphy, Ciara Baxendale and Dan Cohen. Ian Hart and Claire Rushbrook will also return for the final series.

Faye Marsay has joined the cast in the role of Katie Springer and Nico Mirallegro will reprise his role as Finn. The official synopsis for the new series is:

Rae Earl (Sharon Rooney) is boss. Drinking, dancing and dating the hottest guy in the North – Rae has life as a teenager nailed. However, change is on the horizon as the gang grows up. Chloe has ambitions to attend business school, Finn wants to settle down and the spectre of university applications looms large. A new friend for Rae also forces her to see everything differently. As Rae struggles to maintain the status quo, will she be left behind or embrace the biggest adventure yet?

Piers Wenger, Channel 4 Head of Drama said, ‘My Mad Fat Diary has touched the hearts of the E4 audience and it is with both sadness and pride that we announce filming on the third and final series. But anyone expecting Rae Earl to go quietly will be sorely mistaken. We’re delighted to welcome back Mad Fat’s exceptional cast, led by Sharon Rooney, as Rae faces her greatest challenges yet”.

Sharon Rooney said, “It has been a privilege to tell Rae’s story. My Mad Fat Diary has been a huge part of my life and, although I am sad that this amazing rollercoaster ride is almost over, it’s not over YET. We have more drama, more tears and more rude bits to bring you. The support of the E4 audience has been amazing, and I couldn’t have done it without them. So, in the words of Rae, “LET’S DO THIS”.’

Adapted from Rae Earl’s real-life diaries, and subsequent book My Fat, Mad Teenage Diary, the new series is written by George Kay, and is a Tiger Aspect Production. The series is due to broadcast in summer 2015.
