Miranda Hart has revealed that her eponymous hit BBC comedy will return after a seven-year hiatus.
The 49-year-old actress told the audience at the end of her final episode, which aired on New Year’s Day in 2015: “I don’t know when or if I’ll see you again.”
However, she has now confirmed that she has written a fourth series for the show which first aired in 2009.

Miranda told The Sun: “A lot of lovely people kept asking for Miranda to come back so here we are and I hope everyone likes her.”
Apparently, a live tour was also planned for the hit BBC sitcom which followed a woman called Miranda who was desperate to fit into society and find a man.
The comedy also starred Tom Ellis, Patricia Hodge, Sarah Hadland and Sally Phillips, but it’s not yet confirmed who will be returning.

Last year, Miranda told The Gaby Roslin podcast that she was “definitely thinking about” reviving her comedy program.
At the time, the comedian said, “When you create characters like that, that you’ve lived with for a long time, they become a part of you.”
“I think of them once in a while, kind of like you would a friend you haven’t seen in a while, ‘Oh, what would they do.

“And so I certainly thought about where they might be and what would happen with all of them.”
“Circumstances didn’t quite align. But that’s something I would say I don’t rule out now.
“While a few years after the end, I completely finished it and that’s it.”
The BBC has yet to confirm whether it will air Miranda’s new series.

In 2020, viewers of BBC’s Big Night In rejoiced when Miranda reunited with her former co-stars for a special skit at the fundraiser.
Miranda, who played her title character, told viewers the lockdown was fine with her, with flashbacks showing scenes from the sitcom that prove she’s best left inside.
This included attending her parents’ “naughty knitting night” and entertaining herself in various unique ways at home.
During the skit, Miranda was taken aback as she talked to a mop with Gary’s [Tom] face on it, and told her she knew she was beautiful.
However, moments later, Gary appeared on screen for a Zoom call and he asked what she was doing and if that was her face.
