The Inbetweeners will reunite on Channel 4 to celebrate their 10th birthday.
Damon Beesley and Iain Morris’ sitcom, which followed a quartet of hapless sixth-formers, first aired back in 2008 and aired on E4 until 2010, before going on to spawn two feature films. Now, Channel 4 will be marking a decade since The Inbetweeners hit our screens, with the original gang of four – Simon Bird (Will), James Buckley (Jay), Joe Thomas (Simon) and Blake Harrison (Neil) – back together for one night only.
The two-hour studio show will celebrate 10 years of futile teenage crushes, clunge, fwends and a lot of drinking. Featuring behind the scenes VTs, the story behind the show, surprise guests, celebrity fans, unseen footage and plenty of embarrassing stories, The Inbetweeners 10th Birthday Party promises to be the ultimate treat for fans.
To celebrate those must see moments from Rudge Park and beyond, the special will honour the funniest moments across the three TV seasons and two movies in the coveted Inbetweeners Awardsm where categories will range from Best Sex Scene and Best Bullshit to Best Ever Moment. The special was commissioned by Ed Havard, Head of Entertainment at Channel 4 and Tom Beck, Channel 4’s Head of Live Events and Commissioning Editor for Entertainment. It is a Fudge Park and Monkey Kingdom co-production and the Executive Producers for Fudge Park are Damon Beesley, Iain Morris and Simon Wilson, and David Granger and Will Macdonald for Monkey Kingdom.
Tom Beck, Channel 4’s Head of Live Events and Commissioning Editor for Entertainment says: “Will, Jay, Simon and Neil spent years failing to sneak into the best parties, so I’m very pleased to throw one that they’re definitely invited to. I just hope Will brings his Mum.”
Simon Wilson from Fudge Park adds: “We can’t wait to throw The Inbetweeners the 10th Birthday Party they deserve, and we’re thrilled that the original four comedy superstars are joining us as guests of honour.”
Will Macdonald from Monkey Kingdom comments: “The love for The Inbetweeners is huge, the kind of love that Jay would boast he’s had many times – big celebrities, millions of viewers and loving fans from across the globe. And it’s so exciting the boys will be back together to feel that love from all those people and enjoy it first-hand. What could possibly go wrong?”
The special’s exact air date is yet to be confirmed.
