Call My Agent!, the acclaimed French dramedy about a group of film agents, has been renewed for a surprise fifth season and a film.
Thomas Anargyros, the CEO of Mediawan Studios, which produces the series, confirmed the news on Wednesday to the French radio station Europe 1.
The programme’s fourth season, released on Netflix UK and US in January, was expected to be its final one, but that’s no longer the case.
Anargyros told Europe 1 that a film adaptation will come out first, followed by a fifth season.
“We’re making great progress [on the film],” he said. “We want to produce it this year, and we’re looking to air it likely at the end of the year or early next year. And we’ll move forward with a new season for Call My Agent.”
Anargyros added that the fifth season will “absolutely” happen, after the movie airs.
The Independent gave season four of Call My Agent! a four-star review, deeming the series “sharp, sardonic and – of course – irresistibly chic”.
