The League of Gentlemen specials have finished filming, meaning we’ll be reunited with Mark Gatiss, Reece Shearsmith, Steve Pemberton and Jeremy Dyson very soon.
To celebrate the cult sitcom’s 20th anniversary, BBC2 is bringing back The League of Gentlemen this Christmas with three new episodes taking us back to Royston Vasey.
Gatiss, Shearsmith and cinematographer Mattias Nyberg shared posts on social media to mark the end of filming.

That's a wrap on The League of Gentlemen! What a ride! 541 slates in 18 days. Exhausted but so happy with what we got – it's going to be dynamite. Royston Vasey will visit your screens at Christmas… Huge thank you to my crew for giving it their all, worked so hard to make me look good! Also a big thank you to @panavisionofficial for providing us with amazing kit, in particular those wonderful primo lenses. . . . #roystonvasey #theleagueofgentlemen #panavision #cinematography #cinematographer
The pitch-black comedy finished on BBC2 in 2002 and was followed by a film in 2005, The League of Gentlemen’s Apocalypse.
You can next catch Gatiss in BBC1’s new historical drama Gunpowder, alongside Kit Harington, in which he plays Robert Cecil – a ruthless spymaster for King James I.
The League of Gentlemen returns to BBC2 this Christmas.
