Just when you thought you’d seen the last of the original Inbetweeners on the small screen, Channel 4 commissions two more specials.
A movie and a US remake were all Inbetweener fans thought they had to look forward to when the third season--widely thought to be the show’s last--ended earlier this month on E4. Channel 4 has reportedly decided, however, to extend the hit British series with two additional specials.
James Buckley (who plays Jay) was apparently unaware of this development last Monday, telling TV.com: “If it does come to it (and the show returns) it means the writers’ have got a really good idea.” In an interview alongside co-stars Joe Thomas (Simon) and Blake Harrison (Neil), James admitted: “we always say, after each series is done: yeah, this’ll be the last.”
The special episodes are expected to follow the feature film, for which filming begins in January. They’ve been commissioned alongside new comedy series starring Noel Fielding ( The Mighty Boosh) and Chris Addison (The Thick of It) according to The Guardian.
