The El Dude brothers are back… literally.
If you were to make a list of the funniest shows on TV since the turn of the millennium then Peep Show would be close to, if not at the top of, that list.
Anyone who doesn’t have it there would just be wrong. Dead wrong.
The stars of that show, David Mitchell (Mark) and Robert Webb (Jez) are set to pair up again in a new sitcom called Back, which will be released on Channel 4 at an as yet unannounced date.
In Back, Mitchell once again plays a fairly uninspiring character called Stephen, who’s set to take over the family pub following the death of his father, a local legend.
At his father’s funeral, Andrew (Webb), one of many children once fostered by Stephen’s parents and beloved by all of Stephen’s family except Stephen himself, turns up out of the blue and has a few plans of his own.
Check out the trailer below.

Mitchell and Webb are not the only Peep Show connection to Back; Peep Show writer Simon Blackwell is also involved and it will air on Channel 4, which was where Peep Show first gained wider exposure back in 2003.
