Men Behaving Badly has returned in a few different guises since it sixth series wrapped its run in 1997, with numerous specials – normally with a charitable cause to support – cropping up over the years. But there still seems to be an appetite among fans to see a proper revival of the show.
If you have been holding out hope for a seventh proper series of Men Behaving Badly, today we have some good news for you: it seems that the core cast is keen to do it, should the show’s writer call on them.
Neil Morrisey – who starred in the show alongside Martin Clunes, Leslie Ash and Caroline Quentin – was asked about the chances of a Men Behaving Badly revival during an appearance on Lorraine. Here’s what he said:
“You know what they should do, get [writer] Simon Nye on this show, he’s the one […] If there’s a script – because in my game everything starts with a script – and if the script’s good… because Martin [Clunes] and I and Leslie [Ash] have all said of course we’ll do it. So we need to get Simon Nye, nail him down and get him to write a series. Get him on, because he writes The Durrells.”
Would an appearance on Lorraine spur Nye into writing a new series of Men Behaving Badly? Who knows, but here’s hoping that he gets around to it at some point.
We’ll keep you posted if we hear anything.
