Gavin and Stacey returning

OH MY CHRIST! Gavin and Stacey is returning this year for a new special

The cast will start filming in summer

Gavin and Stacey will once again be returning for another new Christmas special, Deadline has reported.

According to the Deadline exclusive, a new special is in the works at BBC and will start filming in summer. The special is currently in development and pre production and the cameras will start filming Ruth Jones, James Corden and the rest of the cast in the next few months. It’s being produced by Steve Coogan’s Cow Productions, Ruth Jones’ Tidy Productions and the James Corden co-owned Fulwell 73.

Gavin and Stacey ran for three seasons and a Christmas special between 2007 and 2010 with a returning Christmas special in 2019 – and made a huge Hollywood celeb of James Corden. Don’t let that put you off, though – it’s still one of the best and funniest sitcoms the UK has ever produced and it literally never gets old.

Fans are overjoyed that Gavin and Stacey is returning once again, because the 2019 Christmas special ended on a huge cliffhanger as Nessa (Ruth Jones) proposed to Smithy (James Corden) – who is the father of her child and the two have had a love/hate, on/off love affair throughout the whole show.

No word yet on who is making a return for the new 2024 special, but I’d bet my Marco’s portion of chips on the full Billericay and Barry Island gang being back on board. I am literally so excited. Can’t believe I’m saying this before summer but BRING ON CHRISTMAS, ALRIGH?

The BBC declined to comment when The Tab reached out on this matter.
