Darkplace fans get kicked in the face


Or at least a light slap.

Channel 4 has commissioned new series of Friday night comedies Peep Show and The IT Crowd, despite lacklustre ratings for both.

Speculation had been rife that the network was planning to axe Peep Show after its most recent series averaged just 1.3 million viewers. Lead actors David Mitchell and Robert Webb, who were being considered for a sketch show project, have now signed on for the fourth series, although it is currently unknown when production will commence.

C4 has also given the go-ahead to a second, eight-episode series of office-based sitcom The IT Crowd, for transmission early in 2007. All of the main cast have signed on for series two, as well as series producer Ash Atalla.

i bet the Dvds for both shows will be out by the end of the year.

Is there no justice in the world?

Well, The Peep show new series is great news. (and I actually quite like the IT crowd) so this post isn't too much of a kicking for me. However it is disappointing that they didn't extend darkplace the same courtisy despite low viewing figures.

Re: Darkplace fans get kicked in the face


Although I stick to my point that there is a lack of justice, I do love the Peep Show and Morris and Ayoade keep me watching The IT Crowd.

However, if DVD's for those shows do indeed come out before Darkplace I think I will actually go beserk and stress that we all storm Channel 4 and much like Dean Learner, get thrown out at reception. We could always head off down the drip afterwards.

'peep show' is very entertaining so a new series of that wont go a miss!

Darkplace still rules in my book

Re: Darkplace fans get kicked in the face


yer i heard about peep shows low ratings but it is just too good not to make another series, and if people like ricky gervais like it(as he said at the last comedy awards) channel 4 would jump back on it, and IT crowd the same, ash atella, is the director of comedy(or something!) at talkback thames, and graham lineham, wrote it so there is a lot of weight behind it and a lot of string pulling

I loved It Crowd and for one cant wait for the new series. Peep show wasnt that bad. So it isnt all that bad. More darkplace would be to good to be true though.

To be fair, I think Darkplace always had the feel of a one off series.
