Two Pints Of Lager and A Packet Of Crisps is set to make a return after 10 years away from our screens, the creator has confirmed.

Susan Nickson, who wrote the hit series starring Sheridan Smith, Will Mellor and Ralf Little, has said she is currently in talks with the BBC for a reboot.

Speaking on the Drama School Dropout podcast, Susan has said that she’s unsure when the show will reappear on our screens, but is eager for it to happen.

She said: "We are talking to the BBC. They are a corporation and in a corporation there are many cogs and those cogs move extremely slowly.

"So basically what you've got, it's me, Will, Ralf and all three of us are just going 'yeah, we're here, we'll do it' and the BBC are going 'ah brilliant, yeah let's do it' and I'm sort of sat here going 'ok, when?' and they go 'well, we don't know'.

"So, what we've got is a corporation that has no idea."

The series followed the lives of Manchester twentysomethings as they navigated their life via regular trips down the pub.

While Will and Ralf are reportedly keen to bring back the show, it’s not known if the girls will make their comeback.

"I would like to pick up the story with two ageing working-class geezers in a pub combating the terrible things that we say about men at the moment. Some men might not understand that the bad guys exist,” Susan said.

"I want to see the comforting story of people like Gaz [Wil] and Jonny [Ralf], who live in a world where bad guys don’t exist. I want them to acknowledge the bad guys are out there though, but I don’t want Gaz and Jonny to be them."


It made stars out of its cast, with Will having recently featured in Coronation Street, Ralf now the leading man in Death In Paradise and Sheridan becoming a beloved actress in hard-hitting dramas and West End musicals.

The cast was completed by Kathryn Drysdale, who is currently starring in Netflix juggernaut Bridgerton and Natalie Casey, who became a regular on CBeebies education show SpotBots.
