'Benidorm' will return for another series.
The eighth season of the popular comedy - starring Sherrie Hewson, Tim Healy and Jake Canuso - is set to wrap up tonight (22.02.16) but fans won't have to wait too long to see their favourite characters getting up to mischief in the Solana hotel as bosses have confirmed they're set to kick off filming for the next installment in four weeks' time in Costa Blanca, Spain.
Saskia Schuster - the commissioning editor of 'Benidorm' - said: "The storylines for the new series of 'Benidorm' are wonderfully sharp and funny capturing the very heart and soul of what's made this comedy so successful with ITV viewers. We've got some really good surprises in store for viewers this year with filming set to commence on location next month."
Producers are remaining tight-lipped on details surrounding the new series - including who will return, guest stars and storylines - but have teased all will be revealed nearer the time.
And, although it's only series nine that has been given the go-ahead so far, it's believed production company Filming Spain has provisionally signed for series 10 as well, according to reports from Costa Blanca.
Meanwhile, fans are set to be in for a surprise tonight when Liam Conroy (Adam Gillen) - who made a dramatic exit last year - turns up to surprise his father Les - also known as Lesley - (Tim) and confirms he'll be staying at the resort for good.
