'Inbetweeners' creator denies fourth series reports: 'Total b*llocks'

By and Christian Tobin
The Inbetweeners co-creator Iain Morris has denied tabloid reports that the show is set to return for a fourth series.

The Daily Star quoted James Buckley - who played Jay Cartwright in the E4 comedy show - as saying that a further series was in the works, even allegedly hinting that one of the central characters would be killed off.

"Maybe one of them dies and the other three have to join up for the funeral," he was reported to have said during a trip to the US. "But the question is - who are they gonna get rid of?"

However, Morris took to Twitter to dismiss the claims, responding to a user's call for comment: "is 'total b*llocks' succinct enough? for those that care, the last time james was in the US was my wedding last year, so the story is either a; v old or b; totally made up"

The writer, who created the show with Damon Beesley, added: "the thing about the daily star story is that people are getting excited, and now we look [like] a**eholes by just maintaining our position

"it's really unfair of them, and i'm sorry if it got you excited. I really am. i seem to have disappointed quite a lot of people today by doing nothing. i'm genuinely sorry hopes were raised, but i didn't raise them."

The Inbetweeners also starred Joe Thomas (Simon Cooper), Simon Bird (Will McKenzie) and Blake Harrison (Neil Sutherland).

The cast was last seen together in the big-screen Inbetweeners Movie, which was released in August 2011.

The show's Greg Davies (Mr Gilbert) said last year that a possible sequel to the movie would not be "driven by money".
