Gavin & Stacey fans disappointed after season 4 wasn't confirmed at the NTAs

Some fans hoped that the stars might use their acceptance speech to announce a full new series

Gavin and Stacey’s Christmas special has already become one of the biggest shows ever on BBC iPlayer – and the stars of the beloved sitcom were given more cause to celebrate last night after picking up a special National Television Award.


But fans who were hoping the stars might use their acceptance speech to confirm a full new series of the show were left disappointed, with no such announcement forthcoming.

Many took to Twitter to voice their disappointment that there was no further news about the sitcom’s future.

One Twitter user wrote, “Surely Gavin and Stacey winning at the NTAs is enough for James and Ruth to announce season 4?!?!”

Another tweeted, “Me after Ruth Jones didn’t announce another series of Gavin and Stacey at the #NTAs” alongside a reaction gif of Amy Poehler making a disgruntled face.

Another fan made a reference to a famous line of dialogue on the show, writing, “’How many paracetamol would it take to do me off?’ – how we all feel after no season 4 announcement for Gavin and Stacey at the #NTAs.”

Hopes for a further series of the show still remain high, however – with Ruth Jones and James Corden hinting earlier this week that they hope to continue with the show after the Christmas episodes ended on a cliffhanger.

Speaking to on the red carpet at the NTAs, stars Mathew Horne and Joanne Page said they were both desperate to know what happens next.


Horne added, ““I’d love there to be some more Gavin & Stacey, yeah, I love playing that character and I love being with those people, so I would love to do more.”
