'Outnumbered' is set to return for a one-off special, co-creator Andy Hamilton has revealed
'Outnumbered' is to return for a one-off special.
Andy Hamilton - who created the comedy series with Guy Jenkin - has revealed they are working on ideas for a new special so that fans can catch up with the chaotic Brockman family following their decision to cancel the show last year.
Speaking on FUBAR radio, Andy said: "We hope to visit the family for a kind of one-off. Me and Guy, on our wall, in our office, we have a list of ideas we are trying to work out.
"We've done a few Christmas specials, but you kind of disappear in a big gap of Christmas programming. We're kind of inclined to do it somewhere else if we can. That's a discussion me and Guy have to have between ourselves and then the BBC. We're hoping to film it next year."
Andy's comments come after Tyger Drew-Honey, 19 - who played eldest son Jake in the show - revealed there was a possibility it would return for a one-off.
He told BANG Showbiz: "There's a chance of a special. I'm not quite sure what kind of special ... But there won't be another series."
When 'Outnumbered' returns, Jake will be studying at university while his brother Ben (Daniel Roche) and sister Karen (Ramona Marquez) will be experiencing the joys of secondary school.
Hugh Dennis and Claire Skinner will also return as their parents Pete and Sue.
