Peter Kay has today confirmed there will be no series 3 of his brilliant sitcom, Car Share, but the Bolton comic has hinted that Phoenix Nights could be making a return to screens

With Tuesday nights episode being the finale of popular sitcom, Car Share, Peter Kay has confirmed the show will not return but he has hinted that Phoenix Nights could be next on his agenda when talking to BBC Radio Manchester.

‘Quit while you’re ahead’

Kay explained: “I am absolutely delighted and overwhelmed by everybody’s support and the fact that everyone’s loved it so much has been wonderful for everyone who’s made it, but you’re better quitting while you’re ahead.

“There’s only so much you can do in a car and the last thing you want to do is ruin it because I think it’s a lovely thing”.

More Phoenix Nights?

Kay, who also co-writes and directs Car Share, revealed he’s had the opportunity to make more of his Channel 4 comedy Phoenix Nights – but hasn’t got around to it.

He said: “I love Phoenix Nights and I would love to go back. I’ve got a lot of ideas about Phoenix Nights.

“In fact there’s a whole series three been written for about 15 years but so many things get in the way in life like touring and being a father. Real life continues and Car Share takes about a year to make and edit.”

With the huge success of the Phoenix Nights live tour and the majority of the cast knowingly up for a reboot, could we see the Phoenix Club back up and running in the coming years?
