Miranda Hart has squashed the rumors that a fourth season of her self-titled BBC comedy series is in the works. 

Earlier today, The Sun reported that Miranda Hart has already written the fourth season of Miranda and had said: “A lot of lovely people have kept on asking for the return of Miranda so here we are and I hope everyone likes it.”

Unfortunately, for anyone hoping to see more from the likes of Miranda, Gary (Tom Ellis), Stevie (Sarah Hadland) and Penny (Patricia Hodge), Miranda Hart has squashed all rumors over on Twitter.

Her post read: “It’s so lovely when some people get excited there might be more Miranda. Means a lot. But I’m afraid what was in papers today didn’t come from me. Nothing planned at this time.”

She also joked: “And yes Twitter I look forward to all the “thank God for that” etc! This just for the few that were excited. No need to tell me that you’re relieved.”

If you're unfamiliar with the show, Miranda is a semi-autobiographical sitcom that originally ran for three seasons from 2009 to 2013, with two further specials airing in 2014 and 2015. The series follows Miranda's everyday life and sees her getting dragged into countless awkward situations, especially when it comes to her love life.

Miranda lives above a joke shop which she runs with her best friend Steve (Sarah Hadland) and frequents a local restaurant where Gary (Lucifer's Tom Ellis)— aka the love of her life— works. She's also a constant source of disappointment to her mother, Penny (Patricia Hodge), who is constantly pushing her to find a "proper job" and a husband.

Miranda Hart later reunited with members of the cast for a 10th-anniversary celebration in 2019 at the London Palladium. This was aired in 2020 as Miranda: My Such Fun Celebration.

The Fox sitcom Call Me Kat is also based on the British series. Call Me Kat follows 39-year-old Kat (played by The Big Bang Theory's Mayim Bialik) who decides to leave her job as a university professor behind to open a cat cafe in Louisville, Kentucky.

Miranda is currently available to stream on BBC iPlayer and on BritBox in the US.
