The Daily Mirror today reports that when the latest series of Outnumbered has aired – it will be the show’s fifth series which was produced after a year long hiatus – the show will be axed.
Tyger Drew-Honey, who of course plays Jake, told the paper, “This series is the last series.
“Never say never, but the directors and writers have said that they don’t want to do another.
“Some shows do go on too long and some of them are just making more series for the sake of it.”
He added that he and his fellow cast members are currently working on the fifth series as well as a Christmas Special.
He said, “We’re starting filming in November for seven weeks.
“The Christmas special will be Christmas Eve, probably, and series five will probably not be out until May.” Read more & comment »
