Will Gavin and Stacey ever be back for another special?


Here's all the latest on whether or not Gavin and Stacey will be back for another series.

Christmas Day 2019 saw a one-off special of the hit BBC sitcom 10 years after it last aired.


The episode, which peaked at 12.3 million viewers, ended on a cliff hanger as Ruth Jones' Nessa character proposed to Smithy, played by James Corden.

Since then there has been no shortage of rumours about a follow up episode or perhaps even a brand new series.

In the latest update, James suggested that there could be more final outing for the show.

“It certainly doesn’t feel like the end of a book; it feels like the end of a chapter," he said. "But it’s very much the final chapter. I think if we ever did another one that would be the end of it.”

While there's no plans just yet, he added: “That’s not to say there isn’t the want, or the inclination to do one.

“When we wrote that special we never really thought whether we’d make another one. But it’s so open-ended it would be a shame to leave it there. That’s certainly my feeling, and I think Ruth feels the same.”


Meanwhile, writer and star of the show Ruth Jones won't rule out more new episodes.

She told The Sun newspaper: "I do say never say never, as while we did make it work that was after three years of trying to find time when we could sit down and write it.

"Obviously with the way it ends, there is room for more. It’s a shame we didn’t have more time when we were writing so we could have written more, then have it all ready to go."

Although nothing has been announced yet, the BBC also teased the show's potential return.

Chief Content Officer Charlotte Moore told the BBC News of Gavin and Stacey's return: "That wasn't something that was going to happen this year [2020]," before adding: "One day."

For now, watch this space.
