The cast of The Inbetweeners are reuniting for a special anniversary episode so 2018’s not all that bad after all.
The likely lads – Simon Bird, Joe Thomas, James Buckley and Blake Harrison – will look back on their time as salacious sixth formers for a new Channel 4 programme being shot next month.
It will celebrate the show’s three seasons and two films, featuring behind the scenes stories and unseen footage.
Emily Atack, who played Charlotte Hinchcliffe, will feature despite heading into the I’m A Celeb jungle this Sunday.
Producer Will MacDonald said, as per the Sun:
The love for The Inbetweeners is huge, the kind of love that Jay would boast he’s had many times — big celebrities, millions of viewers and loving fans across the globe. And it’s so exciting the boys will be back together to feel that love from all those people and enjoy it first-hand. What could possibly go wrong?”
The first series aired on E4 in May 2008, before Channel 4 broadcast it in November that year. The second series began in the UK on 2 April 2009 and finished on 7 May 2009.
A third series was commissioned by E4, starting on 13 September 2010 and ending on 18 October 2010, the first episode of which had the highest-ever audience for an E4 original commission. The cast and crew subsequently indicated that there would be no fourth.
The show was nominated for Best Situation Comedy at BAFTA twice, in 2009 and 2010. It won the Audience Award at the British Academy Television Awards 2010, and later in the year won the Best Sitcom award at the British Comedy Awards. In the 2011 British Comedy Awards, the gang bagged an award for Outstanding Contribution to British Comedy.
A welcome return for the lads I imagine.
