Sky Comedy Yonderland To End After Three Series

Yonderland, Sky’s hit fantasy sitcom starring Stephen Fry and Mathew Baynton, is ending after three series.


In an announcement posted by Yonderland co-creator and actor Laurence Rickard, the show’s writers said the portal to the wacky fantasy land had closed for the last time.

It reads: “After three series, and a ridiculous amount of fun, the time has come to hang up our Elders’ robes. With no cliffhangers left dangling, and a Christmas Special as the cherry on top of our Yonderland cake, the decision has been made to close the portal for good.”



The eccentric family comedy was written by and starred the cast of CBBC's Horrible Histories: Mat Baynton, Simon Farnaby, Martha Howe-Douglas, Jim Howick, Laurence Rickard and Ben Willbond.

It follows bored Debbie Maddox (Martha Howe-Douglas), a stay-at-home escaping to adventures fantasy kingdom Yonderland, where most characters are puppets. It notably starred Stephen Fry as the show's villain Cuddly Dick during its third season.



Series one aired in November 2013, and the final series was broadcast in November last year, followed by a festive special on Christmas eve.

No word if Nick the Stick will finally get to retire though.

It's Wacky!
It's Fun!
It's Cr-a-a-a-zy!
It's outrageous!
Fun House,
It's a whole lot of fun,
Prizes to be won!
It's a real crazy show where anything can go!
Fun House,
It's a quiz,
It's a race,
It's a real wacky place!
Use your body and your brain!
If you wanna play the game!
