The cast has been announced for Inside No. 9 series four.
Filming is underway on the fourth series of Reece Shearsmith and Steve Pemberton‘s dark comedy anthology series. We now know that among the guest cast will be Zoë Wanamaker (Harry Potter), Noel Clarke (Kidulthood), Emilia Fox (Silent Witness), Monica Dolan (W1A), Sian Gibson (Car Share), Nick Moran (Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels), Nigel Planer (Episodes), Kenneth Cranham (Maleficent), Fenella Woolgar (War & Peace), Phoebe Sparrow (Downton Abbey), Rory Kinnear (Count Arthur Strong), Marcia Warren (Sherlock), Bill Paterson (Fleabag), Helen Monks (Raised by Wolves), Tanya Franks (Chewing Gum), Hattie Morahan (Outnumbered), Nicola Walker (Unforgotten), Miranda Hennessy (Pramface), Weruche Opia (Bad Education), David Calder (The Moonstone) and TVO favourite Kevin Eldon.
Reece and Steve have said: “We feel ridiculously privileged to find ourselves at Pinewood Studios filming a new set of episodes (though sadly not in Studio 9). We are getting through more actors than Midsomer Murders and it’s a dream to work with the country’s finest once again. As ever we’ve attempted a real mix of styles and genres, including one really brilliant episode and one really disappointing one; we look forward to viewers debating which is which.”
The fourth series will be directed by Graeme Harper, who directed series three’s the Devil of Christmas, David Kerr, who directed series one, and new addition Jim O’Hanlon.
As we’ve mentioned before, Reece and Steve have dropped a few hints about series four episodes so far, including that one will be entirely in iambic pentameter, one will take place in reverse chronological order, and one has required them to learn a dance.
ICYMI: Series one and two of Inside No. 9 are now available to watch on Netflix, and you can order series three on blu-ray here with special features including audio commentaries.
