The final series of Leeds comedy Ladhood has landed on BBC iPlayer ahead of the beginning of its weekly broadcast on BBC Three at 10pm this evening.

Series writer Liam Williams confirmed in July that this third season of the hit comedy would be its last. He said: “It’s been a bittersweet privilege to make this final full series of Ladhood with an unimprovable cast and crew and an excellent new director, Ruth Pickett. Thanks to everyone who’s ever watched or contributed to the programme, not least producer Joe Nunnery for whose hard work and dedication I am almost inexpressibly grateful.”

Josh Cole, head of comedy at Ladhood producer BBC Studios, added: “We’re so proud of this final series of Ladhood. Liam has created such a special show, and this one is better than ever. Much like the end of school it’s never easy to say goodbye but Ladhood is going out on a high and will live on in our hearts – and more importantly on iPlayer.”

In the third and final series, young Liam (Oscar Kennedy) stands on the threshold of adulthood, as he approaches the end of sixth form and eyes up a potential place at a top university. All he has to do is ace the interview, nail his exams, and not get side-tracked by the more exciting adventures on offer with his best mates Ralph (Samuel Bottomley), Addy (Aqib Khan) and Craggy (Shaun Thomas).

As in previous series, the noughties timeline runs in parallel to scenes of Liam in the present day, reflecting on his teenage years in Garforth and trying his best not to make the same mistakes again.

Ladhood is produced by Joe Nunnery and executive produced by Josh Cole, Gareth Edwards and Liam Williams. Seb Barwell is the commissioning editor for the BBC.

Series one and two of Ladhood are also available to watch now on BBC iPlayer.

BBC Three’s Ladhood is coming to an end.
