NEWS: Guest cast announced for Series 5 of Inside No.9

by | Feb 18, 2019 | All, TV News

With filming underway for the fifth series of the award-winning and critically-acclaimed Inside No. 9, a host of talented actors are set to join masterminds Reece Shearsmith and Steve Pemberton as they create six brand new stand-alone stories which promise to bring more exceptionally twisted tales to BBC Two.

The new series follows last year’s live Hallowe’en special Dead Line, which has been cited by The Guardian’s TV reviewers as the best TV episode of 2018. Season five will stay true to the show’s anthology format, with each episode bringing an original story, a cast of new characters and surprising twists in the most unexpected of places. Combining horror, thriller, drama and comedy, Inside No. 9 never fails to amaze, delight, unnerve and amuse in equal measures, with series four treating audiences to an episode written entirely in iambic pentameter and a murder mystery told in reverse chronological order.

As ever, there will be a stellar cast joining Reece and Steve: the line-up includes Maxine Peake, Jenna Coleman David Morrissey  Dipo Ola, Phil Davis, Ralf Little, Jill Halfpenny, Steve Speirs, Tom Goodman-Hill, Fionn Whitehead. Kadiff KirwanDebbie Rush and Ioanna Kimbook.

Reece Shearsmith and Steve Pemberton say: “We’re delighted to announce a guest cast brimming with both emerging and established talent, all judiciously chosen to make us look a bit classier by association.”  

Shane Allen, Controller, BBC Comedy Commissioning says: “Reece and Steve consistently dazzle  and delight with what is undoubtedly the most inventively prolific storytelling series on television. Their ability to subvert and surprise makes each show a unique experience for the viewers. It’s the antidote to a world of familiar cosy TV formats.”

Inside No.9 will return later in the year on BBC Two.
