Here are the exclusive details, as Mark Kermode’s Secrets Of Cinema gets set for a new series, with filming taking place before Christmas.

It feels as though good news is at something of a premium at the moment, but here’s something to look forward to: the new series of Mark Kermode’s Secrets Of Cinema is definitely going ahead.

We’ve learned that BBC Four has ordered a new series of three episodes, that are about to go into production. They’ll reunite the production team of lead writer Kim Newman, producer Nick Freand Jones and executive producer John Das.

Furthermore, we’ve discovered what the themes of the three new episodes will be. We can’t tell you the exact order, but they’ll be:

  • Pop movies
  • Cult movies
  • Brit comedies

We don’t have transmission details as of yet, and as we understand it, the new episodes haven’t yet been filmed. The plan is to get them shot this side of Christmas, though.

Given that the original commission was for one run of three episodes, this latest series will take the count to 14 in total, with hopefully more to come.

No news as of yet as to another run of Kermode & Mayo’s Home Entertainment Service as of yet. Fingers crossed.

More as we hear it…
