UK comedy series Inside No. 9, by Steve Pemberton and Reece Shearsmith, has been renewed for a third season.
The BBC anthology series set in a different location each week, combines horror, thriller, drama and comedy all inside a “number 9” address.
Drawing upon guest performers it has included Gemma Arterton, Denis Lawson, Sheridan Smith, Timothy West, Anna Chancellor, David Warner, Alison Steadman, Tamsin Greig, Jane Horrocks and Jack Whitehall.
Shane Allen, Controller, Comedy Commissioning, says: “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.”
Steve Pemberton and Reece Shearsmith say: “We (Steve and Reece) 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. (If you can get tears of terror.)”
It airs in Australia on BBC First.
