‘The League Of Gentlemen’ are plotting a “Brexity” return

Co-creator Mark Gatiss says the comedy troupe are "talking seriously" about a reunion

The League Of Gentlemen‘s co-creator Mark Gatiss has told fans that a “Brexity” reunion is being plotted by the comedy troupe.

Gatiss created the cult comedy series with Steve Pemberton, Reece Shearsmith and Jeremy Dyson, and starred alongside Pemberton 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.


“We’re hoping to [more],” Gatiss said today (October 6) during a BBC Radio 6Music interview. “We’ve talked seriously about doing something – we’re not quite sure what it is yet but we’d love to do something, it is 10 years…”

“I think increasingly, talking about prescience, we have become a local country for local people and I wonder if there is something Brexity in us that we can do,” he continued. “Michael Gove’s resemblance to Edward from the local shop is not a coincidence.”
