BAD EDUCATION SET TO RETURN FOR FIFTH SERIES ON BBC THREE
Bad Education is set to return for a fifth series on BBC Three, TV Zone understands. It follows a successful reboot earlier this year, which followed a reunion special late last year which saw Jack Whitehall reprise his role.
The rebooted series is led by former Class K students, fabulous diva Stephen (Layton Williams), and lovable geezer Mitchell (Charlie Wernham) - return as Drama and PE teachers, to ‘educate’ a gaggle of rebellious misfits.
Series 4 saw Stephen and Mitchell get to grips with their new career and wayward students, all whilst new headteacher and control freak Ms Hoburn (Vicki Pepperdine) looms large. Meanwhile, recently departed head Mr Fraser (Mathew Horne) and his questionable ‘bants’ continues to hang around the school kitchen, as HR struggle to fire him.
The series also welcomes the glamorous gossip Usma (Asha Hassan), wannabe roadman Inchez (Anthony J Abraham), himbo Harrison (Bobby Johnson), clueless slacktivist Jinx (Laura Marcus), eccentric Warren (Ali Hadji-Heshmati) and energetic hustler, Blessing (Francesca Amewudah-Rivers).
Although a fifth series has not formerly been announced by the BBC, TV Zone understands that filming is due to commence this Summer, with the series expected to air in early 2024.
Bad Education is available now on BBC iPlayer.
