It’s official: The League of Gentlemen are coming back!

June 21st, 2017 by Marc Comments


You may recall that back in February we reported that The League of Gentlemen could be making a return (here), well now it’s actually happening!

Yes, one third of the league, Reece Shearsmith, has tweeted (below) that he’s back writing the show’s return: “Fun and strange to be writing The League of Gentlemen again. Evidently, it’s true…. we’ll never leave.”

Shearsmith was the co-creator of The League along with Mark Gatiss, Steve Pemberton and Jeremy Dyson. Gatiss has earlier hinted that the League would be returning soon with new material, although he age no details. Is this the project he’s been working on that’s in front of the Dracula series (here)?

The last time we saw the League was in 2005’s  The League of Gentlemen’s Apocalypse and before that the BBC series ended in 2002.

The show became an instant classic because of it’s dark humour and deliciously un-PC attitude… it’ll be interesting to see if it can still run the risks in the current climate.

We don’t know about the rest of you guys but this is very, very exciting news…

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
