According to the synopsis: "Viewers first met reformed drug-dealer Mobeen as he was trying to turn his life around living as a good Muslim, looking after his little sister, and trying to escape his troubled past. Since then he’s almost made good on living a quiet-ish life, but in the cliff-hanger series three finale, he found himself banged-up behind bars with Nate, after their close friend Eight had been killed.

"As they adjust to life on the inside, familiar faces are also set to return, but in very unexpected situations. All this means Mobeen and Nate must once again negotiate new challenges and circumstances. So can the haphazard heroes make it to the end of their sentence without causing more mayhem and come good on their dream of living a quiet life?"

To mark the show's exciting return to our screens, co-creator Andy Milligan discussed the new season and prison setting in particular at the BBC's preview event for the show. He said: "It is all in prison, a good chunk. It is something we really wanted to explore. Whether it is knife crime or food banks, prison is another arena of society.

"Its not just about crime and punishment as you also have adult illiteracy, faith, class and sexuality under one roof. It is a great pressure cooker to explore those issues."

Is there a trailer for Man Like Mobeen season 4?

As of yet, there isn't a trailer for season 4 but if you fancy reacquainting yourself with the series after its three year hiatus, perhaps a re-watch of this hilarious scene will get you in the mood for more.
