Steve Pemberton and Reece Shearsmith’s anthology show Inside No 9 will begin broadcasting its final series on 8th May, here are the details.

You have to take your hat off to Steve Pemberton and Reece Shearsmith. By the end of the next series, The League Of Gentlemen stars will have written 55 completely new, original comedy dramas, complete with shocks, surprises and twists aplenty. We’re talking about the majestic Inside No 9.

From the silent shenanigans of the wonderful A Quiet Night In (which featured Charlie Chaplin’s granddaughter Oona Chaplin) to the astonishing drama of The Twelve Days Of Christine and, arguably the greatest episode, beautiful ode to double acts Bernie Clifton’s Dressing Room, if you’ve never had the pleasure, it is a series well worth delving into.

Perhaps appropriately, the upcoming series will be the last.

The BBC has revealed that the ninth and final series will begin broadcasting from the 8th May at 22:00 on BBC Two.

The title of the first episode is Boo to a Goose, the synopsis reads as follows:

Late-night passengers get stuck in a tunnel when their train breaks down. Patiently, they wait for the replacement service until a nurse gets her purse stolen and tempers start to fray.

Guest stars include include Dorothy Atkinson, Charlie Cooper, Philippa Dunne, Joel Fry, Katherine Kelly, Matthew Kelly, Eddie Marsan, Vinette Robinson, Hayley Squires, Susan Wokoma, Pemberton’s Benidorm co-star Siobhan Finneran and Psychoville co-stars Adrian Scarborough and Mark Bonnar.

Pemberton and Shearsmith have no plans to make any more episodes, but in an interview with the Radio Times last year, Pemberton said “We’re not saying it’s over for good. After all, The League of Gentlemen came back [for an anniversary specials], but we won’t be looking to make any more episodes for the time being”.

You can watch all episodes of Inside No. 9 on BBC iPlayer.
