Sherlock’s Mark Gatiss and Back to Life star Daisy Haggard will also be appearing in the series. Speaking about what to expect in a joint statement, Reece and Steve said: “We hope you'll join us and another incredible cast of actors for more surprises that will make your jaws drop and spines tingle. Heads might even roll, and if not heads, definitely eyes.“

The Commissioning Editor at the BBC, Gregor Sharp, added: “Inside No. 9 is a crown jewel of comedy and we can’t wait to see what twisted gems Reece and Steve have in store for us in the new series.”

Jason Isaacs is also set to star

The show has received critical acclaim over the years, particularly in regards to their 2018 Halloween special, a live episode set in a supposedly haunted set, in which the show (temporarily) lost a fifth of its viewing audience after appearing to be suffering from technical issues (which were, of course, related to ‘paranormal' goings-on in the studio).

Chatting about the idea at the TV Fest, Steve joked: “Our original idea was to cut to an episode of Mrs Brown’s Boys... It involved her getting her head chopped off.” We can’t wait to see what they have in store next!
