What’s all this noise!? First images and footage from The League of Gentlemen’s return appear online

October 23rd, 2017 by Marc Comments

We’ve known for a while now that Tubbs and Edward, Hilary Briss, Pauline and all the rest would be returning (here) but now we have our first look… and it’s beautiful. Well, in a League Of Gentlemen sort of way.

The images and footage below feature – among other things – Reece Shearsmith and Steve Pemberton back as Tubbs and Edward! Yes, twenty years later they’re back!

But you will also spot The Walking Dead’s Governor himself, David Morrissey, making an appearance!

There’s also a cool image of Mark Gatiss, Steve Pemberton, Reece Shearsmith and Jeremy Dyson altogther before filing began back in September.

BBC Two can confirm that the much-loved and critically-acclaimed comedy The League Of Gentlemen will be back on screen later this year for three special episodes, to commemorate the twentieth anniversary since their debut on BBC Radio. Their career launched with the BBC in the same year they won the Perrier Award for Comedy at the 1997 Edinburgh Fringe Festival. Mark Gatiss, Steve Pemberton, Reece Shearsmith and Jeremy Dyson will be reuniting for a return to Royston Vasey. The League Of Gentlemen ran for three series on BBC Two and won the Rose D’Or and the BAFTA for Best Comedy Series in 2000.

The specials are commissioned by Patrick Holland and Shane Allen, Controller BBC Comedy, and they will be produced by BBC Studios. Executive producer is Jon Plowman, the producer is Adam Tandy, and the director is Steve Bendelack.

An official airdate for the specials is yet to be confirmed but we’re guessing Christmas time is the most likely… either way, we’re heading back to Royston Vasey in December for the three specials. Are you?

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….
