Speaking about the new series when it was announcement in September, Shearsmith and Pemberton said: “We hope you’ll join us and another incredible cast of actors for more surprises that will make your jaws drop and spines tingle.

“Heads might even roll, and if not heads, definitely eyes.”

Last year, Shearsmith told NME he believes the BBC anthology show could go on for another three series.

“It just goes on,” he said. “It’s a brilliant thing but also horrific to try to keep coming up with the stories because there is such a high turnover of storytelling. What haven’t we done? It’s become a tyranny that we’ve got to keep trying to keep thinking of things.

“If we can get to nine, Inside No.9 series nine then we can stop and then I can die,” he joked.
