Grandma's House to return!

According to the 'British Comedy Guide', Simon and Dan Swimer are currently writing six new episodes, which are expected to be filmed near the end of 2011.  Good news or what? :D

EDIT: Chortle has a slightly different article here, if anyone is interested in it. :)

Great news. I hope they bring Ben Theodore back

But it feels so far away. I assume this means realistically it would be aired mid 2012?

Oh I'd love to see Ben Theodore again!

If I remember right, Series 1 started filming in february and was aired in August, so I suppose if S2 starts filming in late 2011, it'd probably be aired early to mid-2012. But I have no idea how long these things take, so your guess is as good as mine. :/

Yeah. Great news. I must admit that my reaction was a bit doubtful at the beginning, but I was totally won over in the end. It is so sad about Geoffrey Hutchings.

Yeah, Geoffrey Hutchings passing away was sad. Grandpa is not going to be in the second series, apparently, which is probably the most sensitive way to handle it.

I feel a bit bittersweet about this.
I mean I'm totally happy, that there will be a season 2 but it sucks that the actor of grandpa past away since he was pretty funny. On the other hand we'll have to wait so long for it to air. =(
But oh well it's Simon =)so it's probably worth waiting. ;)

I know, it will be different without Geoffrey Hutchings. :'( But I'm still looking forward to it, even though it does seem a long way away. :)

So sorry about Geoffrey Hutchings.
May be the 2d series will be dedicated to him.

It's sad that Geoffrey Hutchings passed away. As far as I remember, there was a dedication to him on the very first episode of the first series, because he passed away just before it aired.
