Friday Night Dinner is throwing a 10th anniversary party!
The comedy series from Robert Popper officially turns a decade old next month, so Channel 4 has announced plans to celebrate the popular family comedy.
According to the Radio Times, cast members Tamsin Greig, Paul Ritter, Simon Bird, Tom Rosenthal and Mark Heap are reuniting for a 90-minute retrospective documentary called You Look Nice: The True Story of Friday Night Dinner this spring.
Other cast favourites – including Tracy Ann Oberman (aka Auntie Val), Harry Landis (Grandma's companion Lou) and Rosie Cavaliero (Jim's 'sister' Jackie) – will reflect on the show's success, along with super-fans such as Strictly Come Dancing's Claudia Winkleman.
"I'm delighted that the cast and crew's amazing work is being recognised in this documentary – unless, of course, everything in it is entirely negative," series creator Robert Popper said of You Look Nice.
In addition to this one-off special, Channel 4 has announced plans to air a triple bill of classic episodes voted on by the public.
There are no plans for new episodes at this time, but that doesn't mean Friday Night Dinner is completely finished.
"That's news to me!" he told the Radio Times. "Simon said it feels like it could be the last one. Well, I've no plans to end it now.
"You know, whenever you make a TV series, you always think, 'Well, that's probably our lot' – you never really know. But obviously, the show has now become successful, which is lovely.
"So you'd like to think they'd do it again. I think they would. But it's also down to me, if I want to do it again. So I always have to think: 'Do I want to do it again or not?' I love writing it. So who knows? I haven't got a thought like 'I want to end it'."
