A new image has been released from the forthcoming return of The League of Gentlemen, and it’s looking typically chaotic.
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 BBC has released a new image to tease the show’s return after a revival for two special episodes was announced earlier this year.

That's a wrap on The League of Gentlemen! What a ride! 541 slates in 18 days. Exhausted but so happy with what we got – it's going to be dynamite. Royston Vasey will visit your screens at Christmas… Huge thank you to my crew for giving it their all, worked so hard to make me look good! Also a big thank you to @panavisionofficial for providing us with amazing kit, in particular those wonderful primo lenses. . . . #roystonvasey #theleagueofgentlemen #panavision #cinematography #cinematographer

It’s yet to be revealed when the two specials will air, but it has been suggested that they could make their debut over Christmas after filming wrapped last month.
The episodes will premiere in York and Hull next month as part of a new BBC initiative that will see anticipated shows being shown at special screenings in the North of England.
Ahead of its premiere on BBC One on December 25, the Doctor Who Christmas special will be shown on big screens in venues across the north as part of the BBC’s preview of its Christmas Day schedule.
