Sorry, No New “IT Crowd” episodes

Sorry to hear this, but the Register is reporting that there will be no new IT Crowd episodes.

A fifth series of the Bafta-winning IT Crowd had been commissioned, but Linehan – who wrote all 24 episodes of the sitcom – has run out of enthusiasm for Roy, Moss and Jen.

He told readers of online forum Reddit that “the chief reason was the fact that I just wasn’t looking forward to it the way I used to.

“I felt that the last series was a nice strong point to go out on, and anything further might just be running on the spot. You don’t do your best work when you’re running on the spot.”

Linehan, who also co-wrote Father Ted, added that it felt “like a natural time to wind things down”.
