Brendan O'Carroll finally reveals future of Mrs Brown's Boys after Christmas special episodes | The Sun
MRS Brown Boys star reveals show future and what we can expect from the festive specials.
Actor Brendan O'Carroll has confirmed there will be a new four-part series of Mrs Brown's Boys, on top of the usual Christmas specials.
The Irish comedian, 67, created the sitcom and stars as Agnes Brown.
He told TV mag: “We were hoping to do a mini-series last year, just four episodes to celebrate 100 years of the BBC.
"But Covid got in the way. Not Covid itself, but as soon as the lockdowns were lifted, everybody was rushing for venues.
“The BBC were adamant that they wanted to get four episodes, so we thought: ‘Let's book studios now for 2023 and we can do the four then.’"

This comes after an emotional Brendan expressed his gratitude for the hit sitcom becoming a Christmas staple.
"I absolutely love it – I get goosebumps that Mrs Brown has become part of Christmas.
"That's what people who come to the show say – 'Ah, it wouldn't be Christmas without Mrs Brown'. You're kinda going 'Oh my God, we established that'.
