You'll never leave....
Cult TV show ‘The League of Gentlemen’ is set to officially return after writer Reece Shearsmith announced that he was working on a script for the warped sitcom’s revival.
The show, which follows the lives of residents in the bizarre village of Royston Vasey, originally aired on BBC 2 between 1999 and 2002, before a full-length film was released in 2005.
Now, the show’s revival has been confirmed, after talk emerged of an anniversary special earlier this year.
Posting on Twitter, Reece Shearsmith wrote: “Fun and strange to be writing “The League of Gentlemen” again. Evidently it’s true, we’ll never leave.’
Referencing one of the show’s most notable catchphrases, one fan wrote: “A local show? For local people?? Count me in.’
Another said: “Oh my gosh, this is the most exciting thing ever. I cannot wait to watch.”
During its time on air, The League of Gentlemen won a BAFTA award, a Royal Television Society Award, and was praised for its dark and warped humour.
More recently, Reece Shearsmith teamed up with co-star Steve Pemberton for acclaimed BBC show Inside No.9, which features a slew of dark, self contained tales in half hour episodes.
The show, which first aired in 2014,debuted its third series earlier this year.
