The fifth, and likely final series of The IT Crowd looks set for a Spring broadcast. Speaking to The Guardian this weekend, Channel 4′s head of comedy Shane Allen, discussed his plans for the future following a whopping £9m addition to his comedy budget after the channel dropped reality series Big Brother. Alongside plans for fresh episodes of Peep Show and the long awaited one-off return of The Comic Strip Presents…, Allen confirmed that The IT Crowd would return in April. At present, judging by the increasingly successful careers of its stars, it’s looking increasingly likely this will be the show’s final run. Richard Ayoade recently told The Velvet Onion he planned to move increasingly behind the camera after the next series, stating: “If I was better at it, I’d probably be more keen. It’s not really my strength, so I think just on the basis of ability, I’ll probably end up doing less of it.” The article also makes a passing reference to the forthcoming Noel Fielding’s Luxury Comedy, and notes that a new three part series about the perils of technology, entitled Black Mirror, is being written by Nathan Barley co-creator Charlie Brooker, as well as indicating that teen sitcom The Inbetweeners (which has previously featured our very own Waen Shepherd) is to go on hiatus indefinitely.

Clearly a case where someone is their own harshest critic. He’s phenomenal on The IT Crowd.
He is, but he’s also a phenomenal director. Did you see Submarine? The direction on it was gorgeous. Really lovely cinema. (I had a bunch of issues with it, but the direction and cinematography weren’t any of them.)
ANYWAY MORE IMPORTANTLY Charlie Brooker is writing a new series yessssss my husband I did so love Dead Set~
magnass asked: Omigod, your Tumblr is AMAZINGGGG.
How was I not already following you???
Seriously tho, the IT crowd rocks, right? I started watching it and got 5 of my friends hooked on it within like a week.
Also - your gifs are awesome!! Do you mind if I steal some of them as reaction gifs? I never claim gifs as mine, but I usually can't remember where they're from so I rarely give specific credit. Are you cool with that?
Hi thankyou! I haven’t posted anything in so so long though, I’ve been so busy!
The gifs aren’t mine, but I do have a link to the credits so you can check those :)
