Not Going Out... Going Out until 2019

In advance of the new series airing, BBC One has announced that Not Going Out will return to the channel in 2017 for a further two series.

Not Going Out is now the longest running sitcom on-air. Writer and star Lee Mack returns with a new take on family life and major new additions to the chaotic world of Lee and Lucy. Viewers last saw Lee (Lee Mack) and Lucy (Sally Bretton) as a newlywed couple just having their first baby.

Fast-forward seven years and baby Charlie now has five year old twin siblings, Benji and Molly. How has layabout Lee survived these dramatic life-changes? How do the not-so-new parents find the joy/relentless onslaught of bringing up kids? If this wasn’t enough for them to contend with, combine it with negotiating some tricky family members in the form of lovably feckless father, Frank (Bobby Ball), always on hand with the terrifying offer of childcare, and close friends including the world-weary, or more specifically wife-weary, Toby (Hugh Dennis) and uptight ice-queen Anna (Abigail Cruttenden). At least Lucy’s more dependable parents are on hand, but what exactly do Geoffrey (Geoffrey Whitehead) and Wendy (Deborah Grant) make of Lee and Lucy’s often mad house?
