The best mates are back. Mark and Jez will return for the final season of the popular British sitcom Peep Show on November 11 on Channel 4.
Created in 2003 by Sam Bain and Jesse Armstrong, Peep Show uses POV shots to follow the lives of roommates Mark (David Mitchell) and Jeremy “Jez” (Robert Webb). It’s become the longest-running series in Channel 4 history, with a run so far of eight seasons and 48 episodes. This will be the series’ ninth and final season, which arrives a full three years since the last one ended.
The series has gained a cult following in the U.S. and there have been multiple attempts to develop an American version, including a recent effort this year from a “major U.S. player.”
Episode 1 description from the British Comedy Guide:
Last time we saw Mark and Jeremy they had just been mildly electrocuted in a field, abandoned by Dobby despite their declarations of love.
It looked like the end of the El Dude Brothers. But now time has passed, and while Jez has some rather constrictive new living quarters, and Mark has a new flatmate and has landed a bank job, it seems that the wounds have not yet healed. Jeremy is reluctant to apologise, at least until the right time is right. Mark on the other hand – content thanks to Napoleon’s correspondence – is determined not to show any emotional scars.
The pair have to put their differences aside however in order to celebrate with a newly clean and healthy Super Hans. But despite his best efforts a good detox can only last so long. When Jeremy goes cap in hand to ask for a loan it appears Mark might have his chance for revenge…”
