BBC and HBO Max co-production Starstruck has been burning up the heath since its premiere in 2021. That’s why Starstruck Season 3 is currently the object of interest for fans of the series. But when will the next season be released?
Starring Rose Matefeo, Nikesh Patel and Emma Sidi, the BBC comedy series Starstruck revolves around a New Zealand woman in her 20s named Jessie who lives in Hackney, London, and works in a cinema and as a nanny. After a one-night stand on New Year’s Eve, she discovers she has slept with a famous movie star, Tom Kapoor. New Zealand comedian Rose Matefeo co-wrote the series with Alice Snedden, and Karen Maine directed it.
A screwball comedy, Starstruck revives the romantic comedy subgenre that was popular during the Great Depression, beginning in the early 1930s and continuing into the early 1940s, satirizing traditional love stories. Without further ado, let’s get right to it!
