‘The League Of Gentlemen’ will reunite in ‘a couple of years’

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.
