Bafta award-winning comedy Inside No.9 will return for an eighth and ninth series, the BBC have confirmed.

The final episode of the seventh series, created by Steve Pemberton and Reece Shearsmith, aired on Wednesday night.

The next two series will continue the show’s anthology format, with each episode bringing an original story, new characters and surprising twists.

Having launched in 2014, the show won best scripted comedy at the Bafta TV awards last year while Pemberton was also honoured with best male performance in a comedy in 2019.

“Since 2014 it has been the greatest gift to conjure these stories into being and we are thrilled there’s still an appetite for more.

“What horrible surprises are there left to uncover? We remain as delighted and curious as you to find out.”

The next series promises to continue to combine horror, thriller, drama and comedy, inviting viewers into Shearsmith and Pemberton’s “world of the extraordinary and macabre”, the BBC said.

Josh Cole, Executive Producer for the BBC, added: “Reece and Steve are extraordinary talents.

“Very few comedies reach nine series, and even fewer scale the hair-raising heights of Inside No. 9. We’re delighted to be making two more series of a true comedy classic.”
