Twice Bafta nominated, Roy is now in its 3rd series on CBBC.
The show is filmed as a fly on the wall “mockumentary” and follows Roy, an 11-year-old cartoon boy who lives in Ballyfermot, west Dublin, with a real family and real friends.
Created by Jam Media, it features Simon Delaney as Roy’s taxi-driver dad, who stars alongside Cathy Belton, Martha Byrne, Scott Graham and Mark Lambert.
John Rice, chief executive of Jam Media, said he was delighted the BBC had re-commissioned a series:
The series and the character of Roy really seems to resonate with viewers in the UK, Ireland and beyond, One of the reasons for this is that we’re able to have so much fun with his physicality and really exaggerate his reactions and expressions. Roy is a true fish out of water but he doesn’t see himself that way.
