Friday Night Dinner renewed for 6th series

OHMYGOSSIP — ‘Friday Night Dinner’ has been commissioned for a sixth series.
The popular Channel 4 comedy has been renewed by bosses for another season with Tamsin Greig, Paul Ritter, Simon Bird and Tom Rosenthal set to return as the Goodman family.
Writer and producer Robert Popper said: “I’m really looking forward to exploring new avenues with series six.
“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?”
Martin Dennis will be back as director, and Big Talk CEO Kenton Allen – who is executive producer alongside Caroline Leddy – is delighted at the chance to continue working on the show.
He said: “‘Friday Night Dinner’ has grown into a monster hit for Channel 4 and it’s incredibly exciting to see the audience growing every season as new viewers fall in love with the antics of the Goodman household.
“It’s also incredible that Robert has singlehandedly written and produced all 31 episodes so far, which must make him one of the most prolific comedy writer/producers working today.
“We’re incredibly grateful to C4 for letting him have another go. Fingers crossed.”
Channel 4’s head of comedy Fiona McDermott added: “We’re delighted that audiences love ‘Friday Night Dinner’ as much as we do at Channel 4, and are thrilled that it will be returning.
“It’s always brilliant when audiences for a show grow over time and we’re thrilled that more and more people are falling in love with the Goodmans.
“We are so pleased to be making a new series with Robert and Big Talk.”
‘Friday Night Dinner’ – which launched in 2011 and has become one of the broadcaster’s longest running and most popular sitcoms – will film its sixth series later this year, and it is set to air on Channel 4 in 2020.
