Staged season 3 on BritBox: Simon tries to resurrect his career with a Christmas classic
An official trailer for Staged season 3 has not been released by BritBox. But based on the platform's press release, normalcy has been restored as Michael and David resume their daily lives.
Simon Evans' career, however, seems to have gotten to a saturation point. So he plans to get Michael and David to perform a Christmas version of Six Characters in Search of an Author.
Here's the official synopsis of the third season of the comedy series, as per ITV Press Centre:
''Things have returned to normal for David and Michael. They have moved on from lockdow and returned to their everyday working life, while Simon’s career remains stagnant. His phone does ring, but only to ask if he can get David and Michael back together; and they’ve made it clear they want nothing more to do with him.''
The description further reads:
''But Christmas is approaching, and Simon hopes the warmth of the season might soften them to the idea of a radio version of a Christmas classic…but that’s as far as Simon’s plan has got!''
The third season premiered in the UK on November 24, 2022, and it received highly positive reviews from critics and viewers, with praise majorly directed towards the show's unique plot, esthetics, and humor, among various other things.
