Well, it’s apparently finally happening. The IT Crowd is getting the chance to close out. If you aren’t in the know, I suggest heading over to Netflix. The show is available as an Instant Stream, and it’s brilliant. This is one you’ll binge watch. If you are in the know, start celebrating now. Apparently a problem with scheduling has kept the show from coming together thus far, what with Chris O’Dowd being in everything, and Richard Ayoade being busy as well (well, yes, Katherine Parkinson and Matt Berry have other things too).
Whether it’s movies or TV, or any other screen, this is the happiest news in a while.
Series creator and writer of the Channel 4 sitcom set in a company’s IT department, Graham Linehan just announced during an IT Crowd Q&A at German conference re:publica that the long-teased special, which he has previously stated will serve as the finale to the series, will be filmed in three weeks’ time.
The script for the forty-minute special was written over a year ago, but the actors, including Richard Ayoade, Katherine Parkinson, Chris O’Dowd and Matt Berry, have been too busy with other filming commitments – and in one case a pregnancy – to work on it until now.
