BAFTA-nominated comedic sensation “Man Like Mobeen” is set to grace our screens once again as the BBC greenlights its fifth series. Co-creators Guz Khan and Andy Milligan, celebrated writers behind the show, have been given the go-ahead to extend the series to six episodes, promising an uproarious continuation of Mobeen’s escapades. The upcoming season will be exclusively aired on BBC Three and iPlayer.

Guz Khan, reprising his role as the charismatic Mobeen, teased fans about the impending chaos in the wake of the tantalizing cliffhanger that concluded the fourth season.

Guz Khan says: “You lot love Man Like Mobeen, don’t you? Like, LOVE it. As a man once said to me whilst I was using a urinal at Beaconsfield services, “I love Mobeen more than my wife and kids”. Bit much I think. But as a result, I think you should have some more. This time, much more. 6 episodes coming your way baby. See you soon b*stards.”

Jon Petrie, BBC Director of Comedy, says: “Well we couldn’t exactly end on that cliff-hanger could we?! Guz continues to bring his infectious energy to the scripts and screen, it’s no surprise that Man Like Mobeen is so well loved.”

In a nod to fostering regional talent, Tiger Aspect’s Man Like Mobeen New Talent Trainee Scheme will offer paid entry-level production positions to candidates within the West Midlands. Further details on how to apply for these opportunities will be announced in due course.

Produced by Tiger Aspect, a part of Banijay UK, and Dice Roll Productions founded by Gill Isles and Guz Khan, “Man Like Mobeen” (6×30) has been commissioned for BBC Three and BBC iPlayer by Jon Petrie, Director of Comedy Commissioning at the BBC. Navi Lamba serves as the Commissioning Editor for the BBC, while Banijay Rights will handle the series’ distribution. Prepare for more laughs as Mobeen takes centre stage once again in this highly anticipated fifth series.
