Alright Channel 4, no pressure or anything … when should we expect some details? “Soon” is kind of vague.
Back in May, we announced via BBC News that the original cast members – Chris O’Dowd, Richard Ayoade, Katherine Parkinson and Matt Berry – are returning to film the 40-minute reunion finale.
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?”
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.”
The Family Tree actor retweeted the below announcement on his Twitter account today:
