Steve Coogan “planning a sequel” to Alan Partridge: Alpha Papa

The North Norfolk Digital radio DJ will be coming to a cinema screen near you in the not too distant future

Alan Partridge might have made his silver screen debut just last summer, but it looks as though the North Norfolk DJ could be returning to a cinema screen near you in the not so distant future. 


Henry Normal, the co-founder of Steve Coogan’s production company Baby Cow, has revealed that plans for a sequel to Alan Partridge: Alpa Papa are under way. A-ha! (Sorry, we couldn’t resist.)

“We are planning a sequel,” Normal told the Guardian, adding: “that will be great.”

Fans of the fictional small-town media personality won’t have to wait that long to get their next Partridge fix, though. 

“We are also looking at doing more Mid Morning Matters and another Sky special, a little bit like Coast with Alan Partridge, except I don’t think he goes out of Norfolk,” continued Normal. “We start writing now. I think we make it at the end of summer.”

Alan Partridge’s well received foray into filmmaking, Alpa Papa, saw the broadcaster become an intermediary between the police and a disgruntled colleague who had taken him hostage. 

As well as producing films such as Bafta-winning Philomena and Alpha Papa, Baby Cow counts Gavin & Stacey, Moone Boy, Nighty Night, The Mighty Boosh and The Trip among its TV credits.

Steve Coogan stars in The Trip to Italy tonight at 10:00pm on BBC2.
