Channel 4 Drops Trailer For Friday Night Dinner Season Six
Channel 4 has dropped the trailer for season six of Friday Night Dinner - and it looks like we're guaranteed more of the good stuff from the Goodmans. Check it out below:
It might not be very long, but there are definitely a few clips in there that give us a bit of insight into what is to come.
Firstly, it looks like Martin has gone up in the world. If you look closely, it appears he's upgraded his trusty shed to a caravan - what a treat.
All our old faves are there, with Jackie, Adam and Jonny all making brief appearances, as well as Jim. There is a notable absence though - Wilson, Jim's trusty/terrifying dog who went to the great kennel in the sky in season 5. Will he be getting another to take the pooch's place?
Do you remember when there were rumours floating around that Friday Night Dinner was no more? Thankfully, they were quashed in early 2019 when creators confirmed that it would be back for season six.
Then, back in January, a publicist for the show confirmed to LADbible that filming was finished and we've been patiently - well, kind of - waiting for more news ever since.
It's definitely in good hands, though - the show's creator Robert Popper produced the BAFTA-winning Peep Show, wrote for season 14 of South Park, and also script-edited a variety of shows including The Inbetweeners, The IT Crowd and Him & Her.

Taking to Twitter, Popper posted a photograph of the first slate of the new series, with the caption: "And thus we begin..."
Speaking about season six, before filming began, Popper said: "I'm really looking forward to exploring new avenues with series 6. Inspector de Vries (Paul Ritter) will still be working on the Rynsburger case, but this time he's joined by new partner-in-crime, Mees Janssen (Tom Rosenthal), fresh out of Rotterdam Police Academy.
"Eva de Bruin (Tamsin Greig) is now trying to regain control of her pharmaceutical company, after an aggressive takeover-bid by the always-cunning Sem Teuling (Simon Bird). But can 'Vos' (Mark Heap) and his faithful dog, 'de Welson' save the day?"
Since the show started back in 2011, it's cultivated a loyal following, making Friday Night Dinner one of Channel 4's longest running sitcoms. Series five gained the show's highest ratings in some time, beaten only by series one. It also attracted the biggest audience share across all series.
We can expect to see Friday Night Dinner season six drop on Channel 4 in March, with the exact date set to be announced soon.
