Once again written by Jeremy Dyson, Mark Gatiss, Steve Pemberton and Reece Shearsmith, the new series of three 30-minute instalments is once again directed by Steve Bendelack (We’re Doomed!, The Harry Hill Movie, Dead Boss, Friday Night Dinner), with Adam Tandy joining as producer having previously worked on Inside No. 9The DetectoristsThe Thick of ItCome Fly With Me and Time Trumpet.

As for the plot of the series – well, that’s strictly under wraps and there are no doubt other, non-local sites revealing far too much already. What we can say, to borrow from one of the show’s famous faces, is that you’re in for a real good treat, mmmm!

Instead, feast your eyes upon the packed out gallery we’ve got for you below. The images feature many of the returning characters you’ll be seeing across the trilogy of new installments, many of which were previously confirmed in the series trailer doing the rounds on the good ol’ tellybox at the moment, and as usual, most of them played by Gatiss, Pemberton and Shearsmith.

These include: Tubbs & Edward Tattsyrup; Valerie and Benjamin Denton (alongside the twins Chloe & Radcliffe); Olly Plimsoles, Dave Parkes and Phil Proctor of Legz Akimbo; the often-ill Lydia Beasley; plastics experts Geoffrey Tipps, Mike Harris and Brian Morgan; sleazy landlord Pop; harmful veterinarian Mr Matthew Chinnery; failed rocker Les McQueen; and the power-house love/hate-triangle of Pauline, Ross and Mickey.

Also returning are movie nerds Henry and Ally, passive aggressive Reverend Bernice Woodall and hapless council bigwig Murray. The pictures also give you your first glimpse at new characters Toddy and Lindsay, both played by Mark Gatiss, as well as confirming a return for Carshare star Sian Gibson as Al’s partner Trish.

The League of Gentlemen Series Four airs on 18th, 19th and 20th December at 10:00pm on BBC Two. It will be available on iPlayer shortly after transmission, and is expected on DVD (and hopefully blu-ray) in the new year.
