Outnumbered gets fifth series
...but not for awhile
Outnumbered is to return for a fifth series, plus 40-minute Christmas special, producers Hat Trick have announced.
Stars Hugh Dennis, Claire Skinner, Samantha Bond, David Ryall, Tyger Drew-Honey, Daniel Roche and Ramona Marquez will return for the new episodes – which will not be filmed until late 2013.
Last year, Drew-Honey, who is now 16, predicted that the show will end after five series when the young cast become too old.
‘If it gets to a point where they aren't cute any more, though, I think it will have to stop.’
The fourth season aired from September, so it will be more than a year’s gap between series.
Outnumbered is written, directed and produced by Andy Hamilton and Guy Jenkin, whose credits also include Drop The Dead Donkey.
