No More Psychoville but there could be a Happy Ending
I know it was announced a while ago but series 2 of Psychoville is the last they'll be make. Though apparently BBC have signed a deal Reece Shearsmith and Steve Pemberton for 2 new shows.
Reece Shearsmith and Steve Pemberton are to create a fresh comedy horror show for BBC2 as part of a deal to back the Psychoville duo’s next two TV projects.
The League of Gentlemen co-creators are working on Happy Endings (working title), a 6 x 30-minute series of self-contained stories linked by the fact that they are “funny and terrifying”.
The series will be made by BBC’s in-house comedy unit and forms part of a deal to produce Shearsmith and Pemberton’s next two series. It is not clear if this will be two runs of Happy Endings or two distinct projects.
The show signals the end of Psychoville, which ran for two series and pulled in audiences peaking at 1.78 million (9% share).
Head of BBC in-house comedy Mark Freeland said it was “a very mutual decision” to call time on Psychoville, but did not rule out some of its characters or themes returning in Happy Endings.
Always look forward to their work. Should be interesting to see what they come up with next.
One more anal-probing gyro-pyro levitating ecoplasm alien anti-matter story and I'm going to take out my gun and shoot somebody.
