Outnumbered to return to BBC One this Christmas

Outnumbered will be making a comeback on BBC One and BBC iPlayer this Christmas.

The part-improvised comedy ran for five series between 2007 to 2014, with a previous one-off Christmas episode in 2016.

The forthcoming festive outing reunites original stars Hugh Dennis as dad Pete, Claire Skinner as mum Sue, Tyger Drew-Honey as eldest son Jake, Daniel Roche as the middle child Ben, and Ramona Marquez as the daughter, Karen.

Hugh Dennis said: 

“I can’t wait for the Brockmans to be back together again. Pete and Sue have downsized, the children are no longer children, but I’m sure family life will prove to be just as chaotic as ever.”

Claire Skinner said: 

“I’m really looking forward to being reunited with my TV family. Working on this wonderful BBC comedy doesn’t feel like work and is one of the greatest joys for us all.”

The show, written and directed by its creators Guy Jenkin and Andy Hamilton, will once again delve into the chaotic lives of Pete and Sue Brockman as they navigate the challenges of parenting their now-adult children who have their own lives to lead.

In a moment of adversity, Sue and Pete gather all their offspring (including one grandchild) to try and celebrate a traditional family Christmas. But fate, neighbours, hyenas and bus replacement services get in their way.

Jon Petrie, Director of BBC Comedy, said:

“Outnumbered is one of the crown jewels of British sitcoms. We’re so grateful to Guy, Andy, Hat Trick, and the cast for dusting it off and putting it back on display.”

The 40-minute special will air on BBC One this Christmas. Previous series are available on BBC iPlayer.
