Many series have had cast changes throughout the years, including Kevin Spacey’s dramatic departure from “House of Cards” in the last season. None, however, have seen several lead actors come and depart as rapidly as the BBC TV series Cuckoo from 2012. Despite the fact that the last season premiered in 2019, the BBC has still yet to confirm a return flight for “Cuckoo. Part of this is very probably due to the greater gap amongst seasons of British television programs than American television audiences are accustomed to. Each season of “Cuckoo” has aired approximately two years after the preceding one. Which is much sluggish than television dramas and comedy that air once a year on Stateside.
The long gap between seasons has undoubtedly been compounded by the worldwide COVID-19 outbreak. Which has hampered TV and film production in general until lately. Even if the BBC confirmed the show’s comeback as soon as possible, the production process might still take around a year to write, produce, and shoot “Cuckoo. Season 6 of the show is set to premiere in late 2022 at the earliest. The pilot established a fish-out-of-water dynamic when it first aired, as the Thompsons’ Staffordshire family reacted – negatively – to their new American son-in-law, Dale “Cuckoo” Ashbrick, a quirky bohemian portrayed by Andy Samberg.
Cuckoo Season 7 Cast
The cast of “Cuckoo” has passed through three principal characters in past seasons. But the dynamic has stayed the very same: the American character’s unrestricted temperament brushes up against the Thompsons, resulting in a clash of cultures. Nevertheless, one cast member, Esther Smith, co-stars on the series as Rachel and has already substituted some other actress, Tamla Kari.
As the character, may not rejoin at all. Because Smith is currently starring in the AppleTV+ drama “Trying,” her calendar may be too hectic for her to resume the program, which means Rachel may not feature in Season 6. The main cast includes Andy Samberg, Helen Baxendale, Greg Davies, Tyger Drew-Honey. Esther Smith, Selina Griffiths, Kenneth Collard, and Holly Earl. The recurring cast includes Juliet Cowan, Philip Jackson, Taylor Lautner, Sevan Stephan, and Jacqueline Boatswain. The Thompson family lives in Lichfield, Staffordshire, which is the setting for Cuckoo. When Ken (Davies) and Lorna (Baxendale) pick up their daughter Rachel (Kari) from the terminal.

Cuckoo has gone lost in a Himalayan mountaineering disaster, Dylan (Drew-Honey) is intending to attend college. Rachel (now represented by Esther Smith) is moving back home with her new beau Ben after two years (Lacey). A scruffy young American named Dale enters, purporting to be Cuckoo’s son and looking for his dad, whom he has never encountered.
Ken and Lorna, moved by his plight, ask him to remain. Rachel is still upset and grieving Dale six months after his unexpected departure at the end of Series 2’s Christmas episode. But she has succeeded to repair a connection with her spurned former fiancé Ben. After taking quality time laboring for a Chinese ‘businessman’ in Shanghai. Dale reappears to shake up the system all over again as things in the Thompson home seemed to be changing for the better.

Lorna gives birth to their newborn son Sidney during the first episode. Dale and Steve plan to build an establishment called ‘All Steve’s Pals.’ Rachel receives a job offer in Sierra Leone.

Ron reappears, forcing her to choose between him and her household. Ken is her first choice, but Ron kidnaps her in a tiny private jet.
