Inside No 9 has left us in tears of laughter and hiding behind the sofa in fear and the show’s sixth season has been no different.
But now series 6 has ended, the fate of the show’s seventh season is our biggest concern.
Inside No 9 season 6
Inside No 9’s sixth series arrived on BBC Two and iPlayer on May 10th, 2021 and as ever, each new episode has brought us something a little different.
From a Reservoir Dogs-inspired heist to an overly obsessed TV fan’s attempts to right a final season gone wrong, Steve Pemberton and Reece Shearsmith have served up another treat that currently boasts a 100% score on Rotten Tomatoes.
After six superb episodes, season 6 came to an end on June 14th, leaving fans with a gaping Inside No 9-shaped hole in their lives.
Will Inside No 9 return for season 7?
- Yes, it has already been announced that Inside No 9 will return for a seventh season.
The season 7 announcement came back on March 9th, 2020 as Inside No 9’s fifth instalment came to an end.
Not only did the BBC renew the series for a sixth instalment but season 7 was confirmed as well.
Speaking to the BBC about the fate of Inside No 9, creators Reece Shearsmith and Steve Pemberton said: “Little did we know when we started Inside No. 9 in 2014 that we would end up with as many episodes of it as Countryfile.
“We are delighted and exhausted in equal measure at the prospect of two more series-worth of tall tales and fearsome fables.
“However, we will endeavour to showcase the very best of what the BBC can do in every genre with 30 minutes of story-telling and some half-decent wigs.
“We might even try a Countryfile episode, no one would expect that…”
Season 7 predicted release date
As season 6 has only just concluded, season 7’s release date has yet to be announced.
However, if we look at the release schedules of Inside No 9’s previous series we can form a rough idea of when the new instalment might arrive.
The gaps between all six series of Inside No 9 have ranged from as little as nine months to almost two years but as the BBC renewed the show for two series at once, it’s likely that season 7 will arrive sooner rather than later.
While this is not confirmed, our predicted release date for season 7 would be sometime between January and March 2022 as the majority of Inside No 9’s series have released during this window.
Inside No 9 co-creator Steve Pemberton tweeted on June 14th to reveal that filming on series 7 will be taking place later this year, cementing the likelihood of an early 2022 release, pandemic-permitting, of course.
Season 6 of Inside No 9 concluded on June 14th while all six series are available to stream now on BBC iPlayer.
