set to return to BBC One and BBC iPlayer
It follows news that the sitcom is set to return to BBC One and BBC iPlayer for a new series, with filming for a four-episode run set to begin in the spring. The third series ended in 2013 and despite several Christmas specials since then, a fourth series has never materialized, with planned filming in 2021 “failed” during the pandemic.
Live Show Mrs. Brown, or ‘Mammy’
The live show follows Mrs. Brown, or ‘Mammy’, and her dysfunctional family as they “cry their way through” their last days at the house. After hearing her children plot to put her in a house, Agnes decides to prove them wrong by embarking on a new life. However, it’s not going to be as easy as it seems as she ends up dealing with a psychiatrist Joe is trying to put him in his place, his neighbors are waiting for a heart bypass, and worst of all, a family secret that everyone seems to know except him.
Mrs. Brown’s Boys D’Movie, 2014
The hit sitcom has won countless awards since its first episode in 2011, including five BAFTAs and four National Television Awards, while its festival specials often garner record-breaking viewing figures. A film, Mrs. Brown’s Boy’s D’Movie, also released in 2014 and topped the UK and Ireland box office on its opening weekend.
