This makes us so incredibly happy. We always used to look forward to our evenings watching Mitchell and Webb make absolute fools out of themselves in the amazingly funny Channel 4 TV show, Peep Show. Now, Mitchell and Webb are back with a new show that promises to be just as funny.
Channel 4 have now released the first official image for Mitchell and Webb’s new comedy, ‘Back’ which marks the first project the comedy duo have worked on since Peep Show (tragically) ended in 2015. However, it’s not just Mitchell and Webb who are reuniting. The duo will also be teaming up with Peep Show writer, Simon Blackwell – who brought the incredible lives of Mark and Jeremy ‘Jez’ to life back in 2003.
The new sitcom will follow the life of Stephen (played by David Mitchell) who has to return to his hometown after the death of his father, and take over ownership of a pub. But just like Peep Show, Webb will be on hard to make it even more difficult. Webb will star as Andrew, the former foster child of Stephen – and Stephen is convinced that Andrew wants to steal all aspects of his life. The comedy duo will also be joined on set by Sherlock actress Louise Brealey who will star as Stephen’s sister, Geoffrey McGivern who will play Stephen’s wacky uncle, and Penny Downie as their mother.
The six-episode show has already been filmed, and is due to debut on Channel 4 sometime in the Autumn this year. And just like us, the world of Twitter are pretty darn excited.
Mitchell and Webb, TOGETHER AT LAST! https://t.co/fQTVcDKFOO
