Britain’s favourite corner store and its owner, Granville, the local grocer with the gift of the gab, are back for a sixth series, with David Jason being joined by returning cast members including Johnny Vegas, James Baxter and Kulvinder Ghir.
Here’s everything you need to know about Still Open All Hours…
When is Still Open All Hours on TV?
The series began on 18th October 2019, with episodes on Fridays at 8pm on BBC1.
What is Still Open All Hours about?
The sequel to the beloved 1970s-80s sitcom Open All Hours, which starred David Jason alongside the late Ronnie Barker, the new series follows Granville, a chatty and stingy grocer who inherits a corner store from his uncle and runs it alongside his son, Leroy, whose mother is out of the picture.
Series six will include the usual ingredients of the famous snapping till (now said to be haunted by the ghost of Arkwright, Granville’s late uncle and former owner of the shop), Granville’s cunning attempts to offload stock, and Leroy’s pursuit of the local librarian.
The series will also see Eric and Cyril get a little too close to nature trying to impress their wives on a camping trip…
