The IT Crowd to return for one-off final episode


Creator of the IT Crowd Graham Lineham has confirmed that filming for a one-off finale episode of the geeky show will begin next month.

The final series of the Channel 4 show was broadcast in 2010.

Lineham announced during a Q&A at German conference re:publica that the special, which was first mooted last year, is due to begin filming in three weeks’ time, according to Bleeding Cool.

The script for the 40-minute one-off episode was written last year but the cast – including Richard Ayoade, Katherine Parkinson, Chris O’Dowd (star of Bridesmaids) and Matt Berry – have been too busy with other commitments to schedule it.
