No TV return for Boosh

No TV return for Boosh

‘The Mighty Boosh’ will not return to TV.

The team behind the BBC3 sitcom are keen to continue with the series but after taking the show on tour over the last year, have decided to explore other possibilities with the characters.

Noel Fielding explained: “We love all that stuff and the back projection but we’ve decided to do a film instead of a new series.

“We’ll do a film instead, and an album, then maybe a live thing just to keep it fresh. We’ve taken it as far as we could in terms of being on BBC Three and going out and touring. We need to mix it up.”

However, the stars are not ruling out returning to TV at all and are planning a different comedy series.

Noel explained: “We were thinking of a different kind of show. We like ‘The Muppet Show’. We were thinking about characters putting on a show and having guests.

“We’ve always wanted to do this Muppets thing and it’s never gone away – sort of a live version with music and cabaret and an audience.”
