Steve Pemberton reassures fans that the show's four creators have plans to work together again
The League Of Gentlemen‘s co-creator Steve Pemberton has promised fans that a reunion will happen – but not straight away.
Pemberton created the cult comedy series with Mark Gatiss, Reece Shearsmith and Jeremy Dyson, and starred alongside Gatiss and Shearsmith as a variety of grotesque characters living in the fictional northern village of Royston Vasey.
After beginning as a 1997 radio series, The League Of Gentlemen ran for 19 episodes on BBC Two between 1999 and 2003. The League were last seen together in an acclaimed spin-off film, The League Of Gentlemen’s Apocalypse, which hit cinema screens in 2005.
Asked about a potential reunion, Pemberton told the Daily Mirror: “I think there’s still an appetite for it, we’re all still great mates and I see no reason why not. We talked about doing a reunion and said, ‘Let’s do it’. We won’t rush it, we want to do to it properly so it might be a couple of years – but it will happen.”
Though a full-scale League Of Gentlemen reunion has yet to happen, Pemberton has continued to work with Shearsmith in recent years on the BBC Two comedy series Psychoville and Inside No.9.
