More dark humour behind No. 9
The BBC has commissioned a third series of BBC Two’s award-winning comedy-drama, Inside No 9, written by and starring Steve Pemberton and Reece Shearsmith.
The critically acclaimed series will return for six new episodes, each film being set in a different location, the style and tone changing each week, combining a different mix of horror, thriller, drama and comedy, always aiming to surprise, delight, unnerve and amuse in equal measure.
Reece Shearsmith also tweeted the news…

Shane Allen, Controller, Comedy Commissioning, says: “Reece and Steve’s grasp of story-telling and comic inventiveness slices the top of your head off. This return will continue to enthral and surprise audiences with some ideas that may even make you want to sleep with the light on.”
Steve Pemberton and Reece Shearsmith say: “We (Steve and Reece) are thrilled to have the chance to explore six more number 9s. Every story is a labour of love, so we will do our best to ensure the viewers are once again moved to tears of laughter and terror. (If you can get tears of terror.)”
Inside No. 9 is an in-house BBC Comedy production.
