Peter Kay calls time on Car Share 0

Peter-Kay-calls-time-on-Car-SharePeter Kay has announced that his popular BBC sitcom Car Share is to come to an end.

Series two finished last week and the comedian has told BBC Radio Manchester that he has no plans to make a third series or any Christmas specials.

Kay said: “I am absolutely delighted and overwhelmed by everybody’s support and the fact that everyone’s loved it so much has been wonderful for everyone who’s made it, but you’re better quitting while you’re ahead.

“There’s only so much you can do in a car and the last thing you want to do is ruin it because I think it’s a lovely thing.

“It’s been wonderful working with Sian, who’s one of my closest friends in the world. We have a good laugh but I think sometimes you’ve got to just leave things.

“You need good ideas – that’s the problem. You need good strong stories. A lot of series tend to go on for one series too many, especially with comedies, and I think people say ‘ooh, it’s gone off, that’.

“If you’re struggling and you just get a sense when you’re writing that you might be running out of ideas, that’s when I think you should walk away.”

Kay, who also co-writes and directs Car Share, also revealed he’s had the opportunity to make more of his Channel 4 comedy Phoenix Nights – but hasn’t got around to it.

He said: “I love Phoenix Nights and I would love to go back. I’ve got a lot of ideas about Phoenix Nights.

“In fact there’s a whole series three been written for about 15 years but so many things get in the way in life like touring and being a father. Real life continues and Car Share takes about a year to make and edit.”
