BBC Studios’ Two Doors Down Scores Seventh Season, Moves to BBC One


BBC Studios Comedy Productions’ sitcom Two Doors Down has been commissioned for a seventh season and will move from BBC Two to BBC One.

The series, written by co-creators Simon Carlyle and Gregor Sharp, centers on the residents of Latimer Crescent. It has consistently grown as a series, and its most recent Christmas special attracted its highest audience to date with 2.8 million viewing it across 30 days, marking the show’s highest audience since its 2013 launch.

All previous seasons of Two Doors Down are available to watch on BBC iPlayer.

Sharp and Carlyle said: “We’re excited to be spreading our wings and lowering the tone as we introduce BBC One audiences to life in Latimer Crescent.”

Josh Cole, head of comedy at BBC Studios, and Steven Canny, executive producer at BBC Studios, said: “We couldn’t be more proud of the success story that is Two Doors Down. It’s an absolute joy to work on and loved by a large loyal fanbase that have embraced these families and neighbors as though their own over the years! We can’t wait to get going on series seven and look forward to the move to BBC One.”

Jon Petrie, director of comedy commissioning at the BBC, added: “Two Doors Down continues on its understated march toward classic BBC sitcom status with the last series pulling in some of its highest viewing figures to date. We’re delighted to be doing more and are excited to see the show move to BBC One for a whole new legion of fans to enjoy.”
