Inside No 9 has dropped its star-studded and creepy AF trailer for its sixth series.
Reece Shearsmith and Steve Pemberton are returning with more dark tales with their critically acclaimed anthology series, and the cast is better than ever, with some of the UK’s biggest talents on board.
A short teaser has been released ahead of the series, and we briefly get to see some of the performances, with Line of Duty star Adrian Dunbar looking fed-up in a kitchen.
Fleabag star Sian Clifford is seen reading a magazine called ‘Horny Brides’ in a cupboard, while W1A’s Sarah Parish announces: ‘This is where the fun starts.’
We also see Pemberton wearing a very disturbing mask, and Shearsmith looking like the world’s creepiest doctor while examining a hair clip.
The trailer didn’t come with a release date for series six, but the BBC has promised that it’s coming soon.

Shearsmith and Pemberton previously said: ‘We started filming in March last year but had to hit pause due to the pandemic. After a nine-month gestation it’s a relief to finally deliver our sixth series to the world.
‘As proud parents we couldn’t possibly choose a favourite, but like any youngest sibling this series is cheeky, funny – and can get away with murder.’
The upcoming series also features Paterson Joseph, Lindsay Duncan, Kein Bishop, Nick Mohammed, Bhavna Limbachia and Gemma Whelan, while Sir Derek Jacobi will return ti the show after providing the voice of Dennis Fulcher in the series three episode The Devil of Christmas.
No episode plots have been revealed as of yet, but in true Inside No 9 tradition, every episode will be a half-hour film in a new location, somehow linked to the number nine, whether that’s flat number nine in a building, or the ninth floor of a hotel.
The critically acclaimed black comedy has so far featured episodes in places including a seance room, a train compartment, a witch hunt, an art exhibition and a football team’s changing room.
Inside No 9 has won a Royal Television Society Award for best comedy performance and multiple British Comedy Guide gongs, while in 2019, Pemberton won best male comedy performance at the Bafta TV Awards.
