The six-part sitcom airs every Wednesday at 10pm on Channel 4
Click below to watch an exclusive first-look clip from Back episode three, the new Channel 4 sitcom which sees David Mitchell and Robert Webb reuniting with Peep Show writer Simon Blackwell. Back follows Stephen (David Mitchell), who is forced to take over his father’s pub when he dies. Webb plays Andrew, a former foster child of his parents that he’s constantly at loggerheads with. Back episode three airs tonight on Channel 4 at 10PM.
Here’s another clip from episode one which aired earlier this month.
The show also stars Sherlock actress Louise Brealey as Stephen’s sister Cass, Penny Downie as mum Elaine, and Geoffrey McGivern as Stephen’s eccentric Uncle Geoff.
The star pair recently discussed the possibility of revisiting Peep Show in future. “When it ended, Sam Bain and Jesse Armstrong and Rob (Webb) and I agreed that we would be up for doing a return to those characters in 10 or more years time”, Mitchell told NME.
“I think it would be a different show. I think we would give it a different name but I’d certainly love to work with Sam and Jesse again and I think they would be interested to write those characters again but basically at the other end of their lives when they’re 50 odd or even older.”
Webb, meanwhile, is up for the prospect of revisiting Jez and Mark as pensioners. “In its perfect form, it is over. I know that all four of us have said that we’re keeping the door on the latch for a return when Mark and Jeremy are much older and I mean seriously older otherwise it’s just a tired reboot”, he said.
