The Inbetweeners Might Be Getting A Reboot That No-One Wants

Without the original cast or writers

This... might not end well.

The Inbetweeners could be getting a reboot in the near future, without any of the original cast.

Production company Banijay UK is hoping to bring the popular comedy to a new audience, with executive Peter Langenberg keen to "revitalise" it.

"It's not feasible for the cast to reprise their roles at that stage of life, but the brand is so strong that I'm definitely interested in seeing if we could take a new spin on it," he said (via Broadcast).

The original series, which aired on E4, starred Simon Bird, Joe Thomas, Blake Harrison and James Buckley.

Created by Damon Beesley and Iain Morris, it proved to be a big success – airing for three series between 2008 and 2010 and spawning two movies in 2011 and 2014.

MTV tried to adapt the show for the US in 2012 but it was a failure, struggling for viewers and attracting bad reviews.

Beesley and Morris are unlikely to be involved in any reboot.

The main cast have all moved on to other things since The Inbetweeners came to an end. Bird stars in Channel 4's Friday Night Dinner, Thomas and Buckley are teaming up with Ed Westwick in new BBC sitcom White Gold, and Harrison is in ITV's Prime Suspect 1973.
