The final series of Peep Show is almost upon us, with the final miserable misadventures of the El Dude Brothers' set to begin on 11 November, 2015.

Episode 1 will air at 10pm, and has the following synopsis (as per the British Comedy Guide):

'Last time we saw Mark and Jeremy they had just been mildly electrocuted in a field, abandoned by Dobby despite their declarations of love.

It looked like the end of the El Dude Brothers. But now time has passed, and while Jez has some rather constrictive new living quarters, and Mark has a new flatmate and has landed a bank job, it seems that the wounds have not yet healed. Jeremy is reluctant to apologise, at least until the time is right. Mark on the other hand - content thanks to Napoleon's correspondence - is determined not to show any emotional scars.

The pair have to put their differences aside however in order to celebrate with a newly clean and healthy Super Hans. But despite his best efforts a good detox can only last so long. When Jeremy goes cap in hand to ask for a loan it appears Mark might have his chance for revenge...'

Filming on the six final episodes wrapped in September, with David Mitchell admitting it got a bit “emotional”.

Olivia Colman is set to return as Sophie, while Matt King will also be back as Super Hans.

Don’t expect a happy ending for the ne’er-do-wells though.

“They will be in horrible pain as usual,” Webb previously told the Daily Mirror of Jez and Mark’s fate. “They will not win the lottery, they will not have a happy ending.”
