IT Crowd gets fifth series run
'This isn’t actually a computer, it’s a briefcase'
Readers rejoice, the IT Crowd is to return with a fifth series of the popular Channel 4 sitcom.
IT Crowd creator Graham Linehan confirmed to reporters at a Bafta screening of the upcoming fourth series last night that a fifth instalment of the show had already been commissioned.
The über “turn it off and on again” IT support nerds of all our hearts have in fact been away from Blighty's TV screens for well over a year now, but series four is set to hit C4 this summer.
In 2008 Linehan, who has written all 24 episodes to date, put out a request for geeky items to make the IT department look, well, geeky.
Vulture Central dutifully stepped in with some choice BOFH and El Reg mugs and T-shirts for the gang to sport on the show. ®
Oh - you are a load of old grumpy pants, arent you?
Is there one of you who hasn't wished that they'd thought of doing the "Internet Presentation" to a team of managementroids?
I just hope the Jesus phone doesn't not make an appearance as it isn't a geek's device.
But didn't see any of the votive El Reg offerings in the show.
Still Katherine Parkinson back on the screen is no bad thing ;-)
