Those across the pond have already seen the start of the third season of Ricky Gervais' An Idiot Abroad, and while those of us in the U.S. have to wait for Season 3 to make its debut here, on the bright side, Science has confirmed that they will be premiering the third season of the show early next year. And we have the episode descriptions for the three installments.
An Idiot Abroad is an unscripted travel series that follows Gervais' pal Karl Pilkington as he treks across the globe, reluctantly having adventures, meeting the locals, trying foods and complaining about things that bother him. Science doesn't actually title Season 3, The Short Way Round in their announcement, as it's titled on Sky1 (opens in new tab). The subtitle is likely a nod to Pilkington's travel companion in the new season (if not the briefness of the season, which only consists of 3 episodes). Joining him on his adventures is Life's Too Short star Warwick Davis (of Willow and the Harry Potter movies). Season 3 will have Pilkington and Davis following in the footsteps of Marco Polo, traveling from Italy to China.
It's going to be very interesting to see what kind of dynamic Davis and Pilkington have as travel companions. Given Karl's nerves, perhaps having a partner with him throughout his trip will help boost his spirits. Or else, maybe Warwick will give Karl something new to complain about.
Season 3, which has already begun airing in the U.K., will premiere Saturday, January 19 at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT on Science Channel. For those of you who want a few more details about what's ahead, below are the episode descriptions, beginning with Karl and Warwick's visit to Venice, Italy.
