Could Human Remains return?

Rob Brydon says 'maybe...'

Rob Brydon says he wants to reunite with his Human Remains co-creator Julia Davis… possibly for another series of the dark comedy.

The cult programme ran for only one series in 2000, but Brydon said it could come back in some form.

He told Digital Spy: ‘With Human Remains, me and Julia are always talking about [doing more].

‘But Human Remains was such a labour of love. The writing period was very intensive and we had a lot of time then. But we do keep talking about doing something else.

‘I'm always in contact with Julia and we often see something on TV and say, “That would be a great Human Remains character”. So, yes, something could happen there.’
