Gavin & Stacey's Rob Brydon Doesn't Want To Make More Episodes

Gavin & Stacey's Rob Brydon Doesn't Want To Make More Episodes

Bad news Gavin & Stacey fans, star Rob Brydon has said there's 'no plans' for a third series of the beloved sitcom and that he reckons its time to 'leave it'.

Brydon, who stars as Stacey's Uncle Bryn, was quizzed about a potential new series while on the red carpet at the National Television Awards this week.

Speaking to Heat magazine, he said: "There are no plans whatsoever and personally I would say leave it where it is, with people wanting more.

"It's always my instinct and I said that before this special and I was very surprised then to see that they had written it.

"Everyone is saying 'you must want to do more' but I'd much rather leave it on a high and it's really hard to come back after 10 years and to make something as popular as it has been because you can get it wrong."

Sorry, folks.

Fans have been hoping for a third series of the hit show for a decade - and even more so following the 2019 Christmas special, which left us all with one helluva cliffhanger.

Taking to social media just moments after the episode aired, fans demanded the show's creators write a fitting ending for Nessa and Smithy.

One person wrote: "Surely they HAVE to do more Gavin & Stacey episodes now?"

While a second chipped in: "Erm I'm sorry but they can't just end Gavin & Stacey like that!"

But it looks like it's hard luck for them, because co-creator Ruth Jones, who plays Nessa, backed up what Brydon said.

She was also stopped on the NTA red carpet this week where she revealed: "We had no idea whether after 10 years people would be interested still. We thought a few people would watch it but we did not expect eight-and-a-half million.

"It was a shock - a lovely shock and a huge compliment. We don't have any plans at all [for a new series]. That's the truth.

"We still have the same situation, which is that James and I live on different continents so getting together to write is very difficult, so who knows? At the moment there are no plans."

Please guys, sort something out - you're breaking our hearts.
