The final series of Inside No.9 has begun; closing the door on this much-loved anthology show.


But, just when you thought you may have shrieked your last shriek, or laughed your last laugh, Steve Pemberton and Reece Shearsmith have done what they do best, and hit us with yet another twist.

In May, the pair announced a new stage version of Inside No.9 would be coming to the West End next January, written by and starring the two co-creators.

The show, titled Inside No.9 Stage/Fright, will run at Wyndham's Theatre for just 12 weeks, featuring a brand-new story alongside a number of familiar faces and characters.

Pemberton and Shearsmith have said that they are still writing the scripts for the show, but added they had been asked about creating a live show since the series started: "Each episode is like a mini-play. There are small casts and single locations, and we were definitely inspired by our work in theatre when writing the stories for TV."

They added: "Inside No.9 viewers go into each episode not knowing what to expect and we want this to be the same for the theatre show, with the ability for each audience to experience the performance for the first time and go on that theatrical journey with us.

"While it would be foolish to try and get the upper hand on the pair, audiences can be sure to expect a combination of scares, laughs and so much more, or better put by the duo: "There’ll be something old, something new, something butchered and something… BOO!"

So, whether you were drawn in by Sardines, cried your eyes out at the 12 Days of Christine, or spent days scarred by the Harrowing, here's what mischief they've got in store.
