‘Motherland returns on Monday 10th May at 9pm on BBC Two and BBC iPlayer.’

‘We’ve got five episodes in season 3, which follows on from the Christmas special at the end of 2020.

The first episode back finds the parents battling a nit pandemic at school, with Julia standing accused of triggering a second wave.

A BBC preview of episode 1 reveals:

“Ostracised by the other Mums, Julia needs to find a way back into their good books so she throws a nit treatment party that brings everyone’s drama (and headlice) into her home.

“The party reveals that Anne has some big news, Meg is facing a crisis, and Kevin has committed a terrible crime of passion. As Amanda super spreads the gossip, Liz waits for news about a career move.”’
