King Gary 2020 Christmas Special air date confirmed for BBC One

When is the King Gary 2020 Christmas Special on TV?

A King Gary Christmas Special has been confirmed for BBC One this festive period.

King Gary follows Gary King (Tom Davis) and love-of-his life, Terri (Laura Checkley) as they bowl through family-life in suburbia.

The first series saw the couple handle minor crises at home, at work, on the local Little-League football pitch and even on Deliveroo, as only a pair of major drama-queens can.

Before the second series in 2021, a one-off Christmas special will air later this year.

The BBC tease of the episode: “The Butterchurn Crescent Christmas Light Display is set to brighten up the neighbourhood after a tough year, but the festivities are under threat when Gary (Tom Davis) learns that his neighbours simply can’t afford the ‘leccy’ bill.

“When Gary potentially lands a new contract at work he takes it upon himself to save the lights and indeed save Christmas.”

Alongside Tom Davis and Laura Checkley, a cast will feature Riley Burgin (Teddy), Camille Coduri (Denise), Simon Day (Big Gary) and Romesh Ranganathan (Stuart).

Tom Davis and James DeFrond said: “We are honoured to have been asked to bring the Kings to BBC One this festive season, and after what has been a tough year hopefully we can bring a little joy and laughter with this special episode.”

The air date for the King Gary Christmas special has been confirmed for Wednesday, 23 December at 10PM on BBC One.

A second six-part series of King Gary was previously confirmed by the BBC, set to air in 2021.

For now you can watch the full first series online via BBC iPlayer.
