Peep Show pair Mitchell and Webb are doing a brand new sitcom on Channel 4

We just know this is going to be hilarious


They’re back for more.

Peep Show has consistently been one of the funniest shows from the last decade and we’re delighted to see that the duo of David Mitchell and Robert Webb will be working again on a new Channel 4 sitcom.

The new sitcom, titled Back, is an ‘odd couple’ sitcom, written by Emmy-award winning Simon Blackwell. Blackwell was also a writer for Peep Show, and the duo expressed their excitement at the prospect of working with him again.

“It’s great to be making a new show for Channel 4, a broadcaster which has always been huge supporter of new comedy, and with a writer of Simon Blackwell’s talent,” said Webb.

“And, in Simon Blackwell, we’ve found a writer of precisely Simon Blackwell’s talent.”

Webb went on to say “His writing is deep, dark, warm and funny – like a hot tub brimming with laughing gravy. That sounds disgusting.”

Back, a six-part comedy, is set to air in early 2017.

All we need now is Super Hans.
