'The IT Crowd' Is Coming Back for a Finale, Filming This Month

Beloved British sitcom The IT Crowd is coming back for an extra-long finale episode after ending its run in 2010. Bleeding Cool reports that creator Graham Linehan announced at a Q&A in Germany that the 40-minute special is set to start filming in three weeks after two-plus years of pre-production and delays. The show ended its four season run in 2010 and was renewed for a fifth season, but the fifth season was never made and everyone involved has been talking about wrapping things up with a special finale for years now. Stars Chris O'Dowd, Richard Ayoade, Katherine Parkinson, and Matt Berry will all be returning for the last episode, and all of their busy schedules are part of the reason it's taken so long. Hopefully, Chris Morris returns from the afterlife, as well.
