UK comedy Outnumbered is set to be revived for a 2016 special.
The part-improvised sitcom was last seen its fifth season last year with writer-creators Andy Hamilton and Guy Jenkin thereafter suggesting that the hit series could return from time to time in a number of one-off specials.
Hamilton has recently confirmed that a special episode is being planned for 2016.
“Probably not as a series, but we are hoping to do some one-offs, where we catch up with the family and see what stage they’re at now,” he said.
Outnumbered stars Hugh Dennis and Claire Skinner as Pete and Sue Brockman, the long-suffering parents to Jake, Ben and Karen (Tyger Drew-Honey, Daniel Roche and Ramona Marquez).
“We’re hoping to do one of those next year, so that would be the next time that people will see the Brockman family on their TV screens – sometime next year.”
The comedy aired in Australia on ABC2.
