The Comedy series will not return for Season 2

#Pompidou Cancelled, No Season Two :(

Pompidou is a British comedy series airing on BBC 2. The series first aired in March 2015 and has seen one season so far. The series features a downtrodden aristocrat who is living in a caravan with his butler and his dog. There has been no word yet on a renewal for the series.

What It’s About?

The series features @Pompidou, a down on his luck lord of the manor who is living in a caravan with his butler Hove and his Afghan hound Marion. The series seeks to reinvent silent comedy for a modern audience so the character of #Pompidou rarely speaks apart from mumbling or speaking in a kind of gibberish. Hove generally bears the brunt of whatever issue #Pompidou has created but he always stays faithful to him.

Where We Left Off?

In the last episode of season 1, the caravan has turned frightfully cold and the repair man is refusing to come and repair the heater. To try and stay warm @Pompidou attempts to set a fire built from a pile of chairs. Hove is able to stop him and suggests that they go on a vacation to somewhere warm. All they can afford is a camping trip and it’s too cold outside so they have it in the caravan, putting up a tent an everything inside. This naturally leads to a series of disasters.

What’s Next?

The series had mostly very negative reviews. It seems that a modern audience is not very accepting of a new take on silent comedy. With overwhelmingly negative feedback on the show it is unclear at this time whether the network will be ordering another season of the series. We will have to wait for an announcement from the network about their plans for the series before we know for sure what will be happening.

Since the series has not yet been renewed for a second season, we don’t yet know about what might happen in a new season of the series. It will certainly involve more slapstick humor and Pompidou mucking about in his caravan with Hove at the ready to clean up, but beyond that we don’t have any information. We will just have to wait for an announcement from the network before we know for sure what will be happening in a new season. Until then we are in the dark as to what might happen in future episodes.

We also don’t know when to expect another season to air. The first season aired in March, but without word from the network about the series’ renewal that seems like an unlikely air date for a second season. We can only really wait on more information from the network to give us a better idea of what to expect and when to expect it. If we hear word from the network soon we could still be looking at an air date sometime this year. Otherwise it will likely take a while for the series to be produced, pushing an air date back.

Pompidou is one of the funniest series I have ever watched. I hated it when I watched the 1st show in the series. I then gave it another try and saw a few oddities. I have since watched the entire series over a few times and always catch things that I missed before.
