The League of Gentlemen: ‘We Will Reconvene’

League of Gentlemen Titles

Horror comedy foursome, The League of Gentlemen, have hinted that their eponymous show may make a return to TV screens in the future.

At The League of Gentlemen‘s high point in the schedules, episodes would attract well over four million viewers and 2005′s big screen outing The League of Gentlemen’s Apocalypse was a critical success. After this, Mark Gatiss, Reece Shearsmith, Steve Pemberton and Jeremy Dyson have not worked as a quartet since.

However, in a recent interview with Radio Times, Gatiss said:

Just as Abba never split up, we just stopped doing it. We’ve always talked about doing something else.

Shearsmith added: “I genuinely think the time will come, and not years and years away, when we will reconvene…It probably wouldn’t be Royston Vasey but it will be something.”

Reece Shearsmith and Steve Pemberton had collaborated on the multi-award winning comedy, Psychoville, before stopping after two series and a Halloween special. Mark Gatiss, meanwhile, has earned major plaudits for his work in Sherlock and Doctor Who – both flagship programmes for the BBC. Jeremy Dyson, the League’s non-performing arm, has found work as a script editor for comedies such as Grandma’s House and The Armstrong and Miller Show.
