Brendan O'Carroll is considering writing a fourth series of 'Mrs. Brown's Boys' following the release of 'Mrs. Brown D'Movie' in June 2014
'Mrs. Brown's Boys' creator Brendan O'Carroll is considering penning a fourth series.
The 57-year-old comedian - who portrays the titular character in the BBC sitcom - is thinking about writing a fourth season of the popular show, but first he is putting pen to paper on 'Mrs. Brown D'Movie', a big screen adaption of the programme which is due to be released in June 2014.
Speaking at the National Television Awards - where he picked up the Best Situation Comedy accolade - at London's The O2 last night (23.01.13), he told BANG Showbiz: "I always said from the outset to my producer Stephen McCrum that it would be three series and that would be it. But it's been so successful and brought in so much money, that we will do the movie this year, which we start shooting in September. It's called 'Mrs Brown D'Movie. That should be in theatres in June next year to compete with the World Cup.
"Once we've finished that there may possibly be a fourth series. I certainly didn't think I would be as fond of it after three series as I am. I thought I would be a bit tired and a bit fed up."
He joked: "We didn't do it for the awards, we did it purely for the money!
The Irish star gets his inspiration for the show from the comedy he "grew up on" and insists he only writes content he thinks the audience will enjoy.
He added: "I can only write what makes me laugh, and what makes me laugh is the comedy I grew up on. You write what makes you laugh and you hope that the audience agree, and so far they do."
