It’s confirmed. Deadline’s scoop from earlier this year says something else Gavin and Stacey The Christmas special was in the works and was approved and it will be the last for the hit comedy.

Posting to Instagram in the last few minutes, co-creators James Corden and Ruth Jones wrote: “News… It’s official!!! We finished writing the last episode of Gavin and Stacey. See you on Christmas Day, BBC One. I love Ruth and James.

Deadline revealed that the episode was in the works several weeks ago, although several cast members quickly sought to downplay our story. Baby Cow, Corden’s Fulwell 73 and Ruth Jones’ Tidy Productions are behind the special.

Gavin and Stacey is undoubtedly one of the best-loved British sitcoms of all time and the 2019 Christmas special was the most-watched show in a decade with over 18 million viewers.

The last Christmas special, which aired almost five years ago, ended with a cliffhanger, with Nessa (Jones) marrying the always cheeky but lovable Smithy (Corden). This cliffhanger led to constant talk over the past few years about Corden and Jones returning to the show, noise which only grew louder with Corden’s return to the UK as it ended to his eight-year term. Late show stay in the United States.

We understand the cameras will be rolling over the summer. Deadline has learned that the majority of the main cast will likely return. Aside from Corden and Jones, Gavin and Stacey stars Matthew Horne and Joanna Page play the lead roles with an ensemble including Rob Brydon, Alison Steadman, Larry Lamb and Julia Davis.

Following the ups and downs of the main characters and their beloved families and friends, the series which made famous the Welsh seaside town of Barry and the Essex town of Billericay began in 2007 as a small BBC Three sitcom, but quickly became cult. fan base and was transferred to BBC One.

It ran for three seasons from 2007 to 2010, winning a BAFTA along the way, and also aired a highly rated Christmas special in 2009. The BBC hopes Gavin and Stacey can give a little boost to what has been a quiet few Christmases, with the most-watched show in 2023 being The King’s Christmas Message followed by a Strictly Come Dance special watched by just over 5 million people.

The 2019 Christmas special was not without controversy. The ep featured Nessa and Bryn, played by Brydon, singing a karaoke duet of the Pogues’ “Fairy Tale of New York” that included a homophobic slur, which was not released. The insult was removed from BBC iPlayer and was removed from reruns of the show the following year.
