Peep Show ran for nine seasons from 2003 to 2015, and focused on the uptight Mark Corrigan (Mitchell) and his self-obsessed slacker roommate Jeremy Usbourne (Webb).
Speaking to LadBible, Mitchell and Webb revealed their plans for a potential revival of the series.
“What we always say is that if David and I are blessed to be in good health in our 60s or whenever, to come back and do another series where Mark and Jeremy are having exactly the same conversations in exactly the same flat, but are moving into their older age, would be funny,” said Webb.
“The way we have it in mind – though the need to work may intervene, who knows, we may be pitching it in six months time – was not to do it when they were middle-aged but when they were old,” said Mitchell.
“So literally at least 20 years after the show finished, not seven.”
Mitchell and Webb have collaborated on several projects throughout their career, including the BBC sketch shows Bruiser and That Mitchell and Webb Look.
The pair can next be seen starring in the second season of Back on Channel 4, which begins on 21 January at 10pm.
