The reinvention started life as a one-off episode in 2016 as part of the BBC's Landmark Sitcom Season. Following a positive audience response and good press reviews, six more episodes were made. Broadcast on BBC One in October and November 2017, the run finished with 2.4 million viewers (based on overnight ratings).
However, the BBC has now confirmed they have no plans to make a second series.
A BBC spokesperson told British Comedy Guide: "We are very proud of the show and delighted that we had the chance to connect comedy writing giants Dick Clement and Ian La Frenais back with a mainstream audience on BBC One.
Speaking in an interview ahead of the series being broadcast, Kevin Bishop admitted taking on the role was "nervewracking", adding "When they initially said they were thinking of remaking it, I thought that may not be a good idea because it's the closest thing to a perfect sitcom that I know. I wasn't really sure even throughout the rehearsal process of the pilot whether it would be a success or not - you don't know until you get in front of that studio audience."
Nigel Fletcher - 'Fletch' to his friends - is a sharp-witted chancer with no respect for authority. Just like his grandad Norman. Now, nearly 40 years after Norman served time, Nigel is following in his grandad's footsteps. By heading straight into a prison cell.

If ordering from a UK store, please note that you are in Region 1 (DVD)/Region A (Blu-ray), whilst the UK is in Region 2/B, respectively.

Blu-rays may also be marked "Region A/B/C", "Region free", or variations thereof. You may also check whether your DVD/Blu-ray player supports multi-region playback (also referred to as "region free"), or whether it can be set to do so. There should, of course, be no problems with books, CDs, or other physical items.
