And it has officially been confirmed!
The Bafta-nominated series stars Greg Davies and Helen Baxendale as a couple whose young daughter returns from her gap year with an American husband.
Andy Samburg, who played the unwanted son-in-law (Cuckoo), will not return for the second series.
He has recently won a Golden Globe for his role in the US comedy Brooklyn Nine-Nine.
It is the first TV role for Lautner since he found fame in the Twilight films, playing the role of Jacob Black.
Cuckoo, which launched in September 2012, was the biggest comedy launch in BBC Three’s history.
It was nominated for two British Comedy awards as well as Davies’ nomination for best male comedy performance at the Baftas.
The second series will pick up two years after Samburg’s character has disappeared while walking in the Himalayas.
He is presumed dead and Rachel has found love again with a new boyfriend, “a nice-but-dull lawyer”.
Lautner will play a mysterious stranger who arrives to turn their lives around again.
Controller of BBC Three Zai Bennett said: “I’m delighted to welcome it back with the addition of superstar Taylor Lautner”, adding it would be “one of the comedy treats of the year”.
There are no details yet about a transmission date for the new series.

Can you believe it’s already been five years since Bella Swan and Edward Cullen’s epic romance first filled theaters?
The first “Twilight” film came out November 5, 2008, and like summer flowers, a followup came every year after. Until this year. Sigh.

Canadian actress Marie Avgeropoulos (Cult) has signed on to entice Taylor Lautner into the dangerous world of parkour in Tracers, the 2014 action thriller from Twilight Saga producers Marty Bowen and Wyck Godfrey’s Temple Hill Entertainment. Avgeropoulos, who also stars on The CW‘s midseason series The 100, will play Nikki, a skater girl who runs with a gang of street criminals. She meets Lautner’s bike messenger Cam and pulls him into her world – and, naturally, into a love triangle with a member of her crew. Filming is set for NYC with Spanish helmer Daniel Benmayor (Bruc, The Manhunt) directing. Avgeropoulos is repped by AKA Talent, Protégé Entertainment, and attorney Rick Genow. FilmNation took the pic to Cannes last month. WME is repping domestic rights.
The Blu-ray and DVD of the final chapter in the Twilight franchise come packed with extras including a seven-part making-of documentary, a music video for “The Forgotten” by Green Day, a “Two Movies At Once” featurette, and more!
The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2 hits DVD/Blu-ray shelves on Saturday, March 2nd!
Two years after Robert Pattinson’s wax figure was unveiled, Taylor Lautner is finally getting his due. Madame Tussauds New York will unveil Lautner’s wax figure on Nov. 15 at 11 a.m. ET. Pictured is the clay sculpture that artists used to create the mold and cast of his head. We have definite stubble. As for what clothing Lautner will be immortalized in, the press release says he’s “styled in a tailored charcoal grey suit and black dress shirt with an open collar.” I suppose that’s more timeless than a soft charcoal grey T-shirt underneath a soft black leather jacket, which could be removed in the summer months to showcase his biceps. Not that I’ve given this any thought.
