Motherland lands another Christmas Special

Motherland lands another Christmas Special with fan favourite Joanna Lumley reprising her guest role

Motherland will be returning for a Christmas special next month.

The BBC2 comedy has earned a legion of fans since it first aired in 2016, taking a comical look at the jealousies, rivalries and insecurities among a group of mums at primary school. 

While there is still no word on whether a fourth season will be made, despite pleas from fans, it’s been confirmed that the cast will reunite for a one-off special featuring the return of guest star Joanna Lumley.  

One to watch: Motherland will be returning for a Christmas special next month and will see Kevin (Paul Ready), Julia (Anna Maxwell Martin), Liz (Diane Morgan), Anne (Philippa Dunne), Amanda (Lucy Punch) and Meg (Tanya Moodie) back on our screens 

After quickly becoming a fan favourite when she appeared in season three, the British icon will be reprising her role as Felicity, Amanda’s impossible to please mother.  

The special will see the mums and Kevin (Paul Ready) busy prepping for the ultimate in blended Christmas celebrations.

It’s a full house at Julia’s (Anna Maxwell Martin) with an influx of grandparents demanding endless cups of tea.  

Kevin is also joining the family this year after Julia learnt that his alternative was dining on turkey crisps from the hotel vending machine in the company of the other divorced dads.

Liz (Diane Morgan) also turns up when her ex cancels following a massive Christmas Eve bender, letting her down on his first ever offer to host.

Things aren’t looking any better for Amanda (Lucy Punch), who is spending Christmas Day with her ex Johnny (Terry Mynott), the kids and Johnny’s new wife Tamara (Louise Delamere). 

Amanda’s mother Felicity has been invited too and jumps at the chance to revel in the awkward atmosphere. 

The contrast with Christmas at Anne’s (Philippa Dunne) house couldn’t be starker; Anne is hosting her mammy (Maggie McCarthy) and the cousins – all 29 of them – and is beside herself with excitement.

Despite their enduring love-match, Meg’s (Tanya Moodie) husband Bill buys her a present so dire that it has her questioning whether he really knows her at all. 

She gets stuck into the plentiful supply of booze she’s bought for the day but regrets the drunken results when something really shocking happens over the road at Julia’s.

Motherland: Last Christmas airs on Friday, 23 December at 9:30PM on BBC One and iPlayer.
