Remarkable Television, part of EndemolShine UK, has been commissioned to make a fourth series of the hit BBC Two show Richard Osman’s House of Games.

“We are so pleased that the BBC has asked us to make another 100 episodes. Each series has gone from strength to strength and has been so well received by the BBC Two audience. It is a joy of a show to make, and we couldn’t be prouder of it.”
