Mrs Brown is set to return with a fourth mini-series of Mrs Browns Boys following last year’s Christmas specials.
The popular comedy has been a regular feature of Christmas schedules for over a decade, making this the first mini-series run since 2013 with four brand new episodes.
Brendan O’Carroll said: “This mini-series was actually planned for 2021. Having been thwarted twice, firstly by Covid-19 and then by a post Covid shortage of studios, it’s fantastic to, at last, have the chance to make it happen. Fasten your seatbelts and hold onto your hats!”
Josh Cole, Head of Comedy, BBC Studios and Steven Canny, Executive Producer said: “There’s no one quite like Mrs. Brown. An absolute force of outrageous wit and slapstick that has audiences hooked and belly laughing. It’s great to be back.”
Jon Petrie, Director of Comedy added: “BBC Comedy are pleased to announce that after a decade since the last full series of Mrs. Brown’s Boys, millions of viewers around the UK will be thrilled to hear that Brendan is bringing Agnes and the family back together for a brand-new mini-series of his award-winning show.”
Last year Mrs Browns Boys aired on Christmas day and New Year’s Day and saw Cathy’s boyfriend initiated into the family and Agnes gets a fright as she looks after spooky twins. Hopefully we will see a Christmas special again this year!
