Inside No.9 to Return for Third Series

by | Oct 22, 2015 | All, TV News

The BBC has today confirmed that Inside No 9, written by and starring Steve Pemberton and Reece Shearsmith, is set to return for a third series.

The anthology format continues as before, each film being set in a different location, the style and tone changing each week, combining a different mix of horror, thriller, drama and comedy, always aiming to surprise, delight, unnerve and amuse in equal measure. With ambitious production values and screenplays that tell original stories in ways which most sitcom and drama series do not attempt, the third series will continue to celebrate the craft of the stand-alone comedy drama.

The first series of Inside No.9 won several major awards as well as being nominated for a BAFTA for its screenplay. Over the last two series guest stars have included Gemma Arterton, Sheridan Smith, Alison Steadman and Jack Whitehall with series three promising to raise the bar higher when it comes to the inclusion of famous faces.

Of the news Reece Shearsmith and Steve Pemberton said, we are thrilled to have the chance to explore six more number 9s. Every story is a labour of love, so we will do our best to ensure the viewers are once again moved to tears of laughter and terror.”

The BBC’s head of Comedy Commissioning Shane Allen added, “Reece and Steve’s grasp of story-telling and comic inventiveness slices the top of your head off. This return will continue to enthral and surprise audiences with some ideas that may even make you want to sleep with the light on.”
