“Hello, IT. Have you tried turning it off and on again?” (CH4)

The IT Crowd, written by Graham Linehan (Black Books) and starring Chris O’Dowd (Bridesmaids), is set to film a one-off special, reports BBC News.

The Bafta-winning sitcom, revolving around two office IT (information technology) guys and their tech-challenged supervisor, was on the air for four seasons between 2006 and 2010 on Channel 4. Originally, a fifth season was expected but it never happened. Surely, this left audience members unsatisfied, scratching their heads and wondering, “Wait, what happened to the last season?” More importantly, “WHERE is the ending?”

Well, all of that is about to change with the original cast members – O’Dowd, Richard AyoadeKatherine Parkinson and Matt Berry – returning to film the 40-minute reunion finale, in just a few weeks.

Graham Linehan kept his confirmation short and to the point, tweeting:

In 2012, O’Dowd talked about wanting a reunion telling DigitalSpy, “I don’t think we said goodbye to them properly. We need closure, as they say.”

O’Dowd took to his Twitter account to send out a teaser:
