Brilliant news! BBC Two has commissioned a fifth series of Inside No. 9 to air in 2019.
This year, Inside No. 9 scooped the Writers’ Guild Award for the Best TV Situation Comedy and was also crowned Comedy Of The Year and Best TV Comedy Drama 2017 in the Comedy.co.uk Awards, adding to an impressive list of accolades that includes the Rose d’Or Television Comedy Award (2016) and the RTS Programme Award for Comedy Performance (2015).
Steve Pemberton and Reece Shearsmith say: “Having tried and failed to convince the BBC to produce a full Cheese & Crackers series (or at the very least a Summertime Special), we have reluctantly agreed to do another series of Inside No. 9. We will once again attempt to trick, tickle and terrify you – but not necessarily all at once. Unless there’s a twist. Which there won’t be. Or will there? Huge thanks to BBC Comedy and BBC Studios for their continued support, and to our loyal fans for continuing to spread the word.”
Shane Allen, Controller, BBC Comedy Commissioning, adds: “Reece and Steve continue to dazzle, shock and knock audiences for six with their uniquely layered storytelling craftsmanship which attracts the cream of British acting talent. There is not a more distinctive or ambitious comedy show being made anywhere in the world right now as week in week out they create whole new worlds and sets of characters which have instant impact.”
