Computer says YES!
British comedian and actor David Walliams has confirmed that hit comedy sketch show ‘Little Britain’ will be making a comeback to our TV screens for the first time in 12 years.
The series started on BBC Radio 4 back in 2000 before morphing into a TV series three years later and starred Walliams and co-creator Matt Lucas playing multiple roles.
The pair brought the show back for a one-off radio special about Brexit, but now Walliams has said that a full television series is “definitely” on the cards.
“I would say there will definitely be some more Little Britain coming,” he told The Sun. “I can’t say when exactly but at the right time and place. It was fun coming back for radio because that’s where we started.”
“We had to put it together quite quickly as it was about Brexit,” Walliams continued. “Plus no one expected us to come back on the radio. You would have expected Comic Reilef or a big live tour. Thee reaction was great, which was encouraging.”
While we can still expect to have the same big laughs with the new series, Walliams did say that a new series would see changes made to some of the more inappropriate characters in today’s cultural landscape.
“You’d definitely do it differently because it’s a different time. There’s all kinds of tolerances that change.”
No word yet on when the series could head to the small screen but we’re sure it will be worth the wait when it does!
