BBC Two's Watson & Oliver, which ended its first run last Monday, have become UK TV's first female comic double act since Dawn French and Jennifer Saunders launched in 1987.
The British Comedy Guide understands that Watson & Oliver will return in late 2013
Broadcast in front of a live studio audience, the first series - which guest starred John Barrowman - achieved ratings of over 1.5m when both Monday and Wednesday airings are combined, and performed particularly well on BBC iPlayer.
BBC Two gave the format the initial green light way back in 2009
