Inside No.9 is a new set of darkly comic tales from Steve Pemberton and Reece Shearsmith, best known for The League Of Gentlemen and Psychoville. For six weeks, you are invited into six very different No.9s, where the ordinary and mundane rub shoulders with the extraordinary and macabre.
Just recently, the series trailer was released online and now the news has come that Series 2 has been commissioned before the first one has even aired. Writer-creator Reece Shearsmith confirmed to Chortle: “There’s a few things which I’m doing. We have now got a second series of No 9. We’ve got to get the scripts going because I think we film them at the end of autumn, so we want to make sure that they’re good and ready.
You want to set yourself a bar quite high where you can look back at the first series and think, “Oh god these are really good, we’d better carry on and top them again”. We’ve got to get our thinking caps on again.”
Also, the BBC have released online two new clips from the first episode: “Boo” and “Someone make a noise“. Check them out below and Inside No.9 starts on BBC2 on Wednesday February 5th at 10pm:
