Sharon Horgan’s Husband: Will there be another disaster?
Sadly, Sharon and co-writer Rob Delaney have said there will be no more Catastophe series.
The show was first released in January 2015 and has gone on to have four series in all.
The fourth season of Catastrophe premiered in March 2018.
Right before the premiere, the show’s official Twitter account released a statement that the fourth season would be the last.
This decision was in part influenced by the death of one of its stars Carrie Fisher, who played Mia.
The series ended on a cliffhanger as Sharon and Rob waded in the sea …

Sharon Horgan’s Husband – Is She Married?
The actress married businessman Jeremy Rainbird on October 16, 2005 at the Chelsea Register Office in London.
The couple lived in Victoria Park Hackney, London, and had two daughters.
However, they divorced in 2019.
Speaking about life after divorce, she told The Telegraph, “You have to be a lot more organized and you have to plan ahead.
“If you think you’re going to be touring Ireland for three weeks, you better make sure your co-parent knows about it.”
She adds: “But it’s good. I have to grow up.
“Jeremy would probably laugh because I still have so much to learn and my daughters regularly tell me that I don’t know how to ‘run’ the house, like it’s a vacuum cleaner or something. “
She hasn’t revealed if she is in a new relationship.
Together on BBC Two – what is it?
Sharon Horgan and James McAvoy play the role of a couple forced to re-evaluate their unhappy relationship by foreclosure.
Their already rocky partnership threatens to collapse completely when Covid lifts its ugly head and forces the UK to lock down in March 2020.
But their forced time together puts them in close contact again – with unintended consequences.
Billed as a dramatic comedy, we would say it’s more of a drama – often devastating at that.
Imagine an episode of Talking Heads, only with a couple talking to the camera.
And their seemingly oft-overlooked son Arthur / Artie sadly lingers in the background in sometimes heartbreaking scenes.
Prepare to laugh and cry.
Ensemble aired Thursday June 14, 2021 at 9 p.m. on BBC Two.
