Mark Gatiss has confirmed a 'League of Gentlemen' special is in the works.
Speaking during the BFI & Radio Times Television Festival over the weekend, the 'Doctor Who' and 'Sherlock' writer revealed that the comedy series will be back on screens possibly to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the creation of the dark characters.
He said: "We're going to do a special of some sort for the telly."
The 'League of Gentlemen' was created by Gatiss, Reece Shearsmith, Steve Pemberton and Jeremy Dyson and the show originally aired on BBC Radio 4 before moving to television on BBC Two.
It is based around residents of the fictional Pennines town of Royston Vasey and ran for three series from 1999 to 2002 and went on to win a BAFTA.
A film adaptation was also made in 2005 called 'The League of Gentlemen's Apocalypse'.
Back in October 2016, Gatiss revealed he and the rest of the gang had discussed doing something to mark the special date.
He said at the time: "We're hoping to do it again. We've talked seriously about doing something. We're not quite sure what it is yet but we'd love to do something. I think increasingly talking about prescience, we have become a local country for local people and I wonder if there is something Brexity in us that we can do."
