Sky Atlantic will; exclusively air the third series of multi-award-winning comedy series The Trip, starring Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon, and directed by Michael Winterbottom. The first two series have aired on BBC2

The Trip to Spain sees Coogan and Brydon’s fictionalised characters back on their culinary quest as they head off on a road trip from the North Atlantic to the Mediterranean coast for a fresh helping of gastronomic adventures.

Coogan commented: “Having thought long and hard about yet another sojourn into culinary distractions and middle age, I have reluctantly agreed to Eviva Espana. I have a hole in my diary, there will be free food and accommodation and Rob Brydon is surprisingly good company. I also like Michael.”

Zai Bennett, Director of Sky Atlantic, added: “The Trip is as close to perfection as you get in comedy. It’s a rare chance to watch comic masters, totally authoring their work with creative freedom. It’s an absolutely perfect fit for Sky Atlantic. We are very happy to ensure that this award-winning comedy will continue building on the channel’s relationships with Steve, Rob and Revolution Films showcasing our continued investment in top-flight original comedy.”
