'Rab C Nesbitt' to return on BBC Two

By
Rab C Nesbitt is to return for a one-off special as part of a new raft of comedy commissions for BBC Two.

The special will be the first new episode of the long-running sitcom in a decade, with Gregor Fisher and Elaine Smith both reprising their roles.

The channel has also confirmed commissions for Simon Nye's In My Country, which stars Omid Djalili as an Iranian immigrant staying at a guest house with other immigrants, including a Nigerian migrant played by Stephen K. Amos, and Miranda Hart's Joke Shop, starring comedy actress Miranda Hart in a "farcical, affectionate and thoroughly modern comedy about being the odd one out".

Lucy Lumsden, controller of comedy commissioning at the BBC, said: "The return of a great character such as Rab C Nesbitt, along with two new audience sitcoms, reflects the wide range of diverse, distinctive, quality comedy BBC Two continues to offer viewers."
