Scottish sitcom Still Game set to return for a seventh series

The Millennium has produced a small cluster of successful British sitcoms which include the likes of The Office, Peep Show and The Inbetweeners. However one particular programme that has garnered a cult following is the sublime Scottish series Still Game.

Created by the brilliant minds of comedic double act, Ford Kiernan and Greg Hemphill, it focuses on a pair of cranky pensioners named Jack Jarvis and Victor McDade (played by Kiernan and Hemphill) as they get up to various antics in the rough Scottish town of Craiglang. No pish-taking from them!

There were six series that were made between 2002 and 2007 and this also included four Christmas specials as well as a successful stage show that took place in 2014.

Thankfully fans will be delighted to know that Jack, Victor and co. will be back for a long-awaited seventh series which will consist of six episodes and be produced by the BBC.

On the news, Kiernan said:

“We’re super happy to come back with the show – we had no idea how much it had been missed until we played the Hydr. Myself and Greg are really excited about getting the gang together again and we are putting our all in to make our fantastic audience feel like we’ve never been away.”

Kiernan and Hemphill will be rejoined in the upcoming series by original co-stars Paul Riley (Winston Ingram), Jane McCarry (Isa), Mark Cox (Tam), Sanjeev Kohli (Navid) and Gavin Mitchell (Boaby).

The newest series of Still Game will air on BBC One later this year. Below is a classic clip of one of the sitcom’s greatest moments involving an unfortunate Winston. Get it up yous!
