The Inbetweeners Creators 'Can't Imagine' Not Working With Cast Again

The Inbetweeners Creators 'Can't Imagine' Not Working With Cast Again

The creators of The Inbetweeners have said they 'can't imagine' not working with the cast again.

The last time we saw the boys together on screen was in 2014 in the second Inbetweeners film and there is definitely an appetite for more among fans of the comedy.

As such, it can only be good that the creators envisage working with Joe Thomas, Simon Bird, James Buckley and Blake Harrison again - though how and when remains to be seen.

Speaking to Digital Spy, co-creator Iain Morris said: "We've written and shot two new series [of The Inbetweeners] and a film. We just didn't mention it before. That's all done. Maybe we'll release it."

Sadly though, this was definitely sarcasm.

He added: "No, we are... I don't know, really. Again, I love everybody involved in it so much, and we all still talk, and we've got a hilarious WhatsApp group. And, you know, I can't imagine not doing something with them ever again. I don't know if it would be The Inbetweeners."

Fellow writer and creator Damon Beesley also admitted thinking about a reunion frequently and revealed the main thing stopping it from happening.

He said: "Yeah. We always talk about it, don't we? It's hard to say. The main stumbling block would be us, because we haven't got any ideas for it that would do it justice.

"If we could think of something and thought, 'Oh, that's a brilliant idea for those four characters!' I think it would be the easiest thing in the world to just go back there and do it.

"It depends, really. If Iain keeps having children, he's going to need to probably work well into his 60s and maybe his 70s."

While all of the above sounds fairly encouraging, the briefcase w****r himself Simon Bird was making far less positive noises last year, describing the prospect of a reunion as 'depressing for everyone'.

Speaking to Screen Daily, the 35-year-old actor said: "I don't know how that would work. I don't think it would work with the characters grown up, which we now all are.

"No one is going to buy us as teenagers any more. And I think the idea of the four of us back together as 30-somethings is going to be a bit more depressing for everyone. I can't see us doing any more of it."

Fair point, really. You're not even really 'inbetween' anything in your 30s, are you? Except for maybe steady career progression and an ever-growing urge to sack it all in and become a hermit.
