This Country is a British mockumentary sitcom, first transmission in the United Kingdom on BBC Three on 8 February 2017. Made by, composed by, and featuring kin Daisy May and Charlie Cooper, the arrangement is about the everyday existence of two youngsters living in a little town in the Cotswolds. The program focuses on topics of social awkwardness, the details of human conduct, the erraticism of living in country England, and the fatigue and social confinement of youngsters in little communities. Following rave surveys and more than 4,000,000 iPlayer demands, on 18 July 2017, the BBC reestablished the program for a subsequent arrangement, the main scene of which was delivered on 26 February 2018. On 20 April 2018, the BBC recharged the program for a 40-minute irregular extraordinary, just as a third and last series, which broadcasted from February 2020 to March 2020.
