BBC Confirms Gavin & Stacey Will Return With Future Episodes
It's the news fans have been waiting for since the short-lived return of Gavin & Stacey last Christmas. Now, BBC's Charlotte Moore has said that although the follow-up won't be this festive season, it is definitely on the cards.
"That wasn't something that was going to happen this year," she said. "One day."
For months, there has been speculation over whether we might see Gavin & Stacey return to our screens.
The hit British sitcom - which ran for three seasons between 2007 and 2010 - returned at Christmas for a one-off special on BBC One.
The hour-long episode was the most-watched TV of Christmas Day, and it left us on an almighty cliffhanger, with Nessa (played by Ruth Jones) proposing to Smithy (James Corden).
Earlier this year, Larry Lamb, who plays Mick Shipman in the show, teased "it's a question of when, not if" the show would return.
"I think it would be pretty cruel to leave us on that cliffhanger," the 72-year-old actor told OK! Magazine.

"After the response it got at Christmas, you can more or less be certain that, sooner or later, there will be more.
"I'm sure the BBC can persuade Ruth and James to write more, so it's a question of when, not if."
Larry went on to explain that it's more an issue of logistics as the cast are so busy with their careers.
While he ruled out there would unlikely be another series, he did say he "imagined" there could be another special.
"I've always thought a logical thing to do would be a Gavin & Stacey movie, but that's just my idea," he added.
Um, yes please!
Of course, with the pandemic halting so many of our favourite shows this year, it makes sense that there wouldn't be a follow up special this Christmas.
But we've got our hopes pinned on 2021 - come on BBC, make it happen!
