The League of Gentlemen are to be reunited for the first time in five years Ė to spend the night in a haunted house.
Shearsmith broke the news on Twitter this morning, revealing that they would be recording it later this month..
He wrote: ĎAm very excited about it. Been hard to get a date that we all can do We nearly did it for TV a few years ago, but they bumped us for Girls Aloud. Obviously far more interesting a show with them doing it.
ĎWe are not in character. Itís just us four in a reputed haunted house for a night! Letís hope the spooks show up!í
The four last worked together on their 2005, although Gatiss made an uncredited appearance on Shearsmith and Pembertonís BBC Two series Psychoville.
The pair have just finished recording a Halloween episode of that dark comedy; while Dysonís play Ghost Stories, which he co-created with Andy Nyman, is currently playing the West End.
Last Halloween, Shearsmith hosted a brief series for Radio 4 called Haunted House, in which he and guests discussed the horror genre in Sutton House in Hackney, which is said to be haunted.
