Graham Linehan has confirmed that IT Crowd will be retirning for a one-off 40 minute special.
Chris O’Dowd, Richard Ayoade, Katherine Parkinson and Matt Berry are expected to return for the new episode, which will be filmed in three weeks’ time. As yet, there’s no news as to whether Noel Fielding will be joining the cast for the grand finale.
Last year that O’Dowd revealed that he would be interested in reprising the role of Roy, claiming that the show’s stars still “need closure”.
“I’d love to do something more with those characters,” he said. “I don’t think we said goodbye to them properly.”
The script for the special was written over a year ago, but the cast have been too busy with other filming commitments – and in one case a pregnancy – to work on it until now.
As yet there’s no news about when the special will air, but as soon as we hear anything we’ll be sure to let you know!
