Did David Mitchell throw hints about reboot details?
Inquisitive and impatient fans have been wondering if there will ever be a reboot in the making. To their delight, David Mitchell may have thrown hints about a possible reboot in the near future.
In an interview with iTV lead presenter Lorraine Kelly, Mitchell admitted it would be interesting to discover what Corrigan and flatmate Jez Usborne – played by close friend Robert Webb – are doing.
“With ‘Peep Show’ we felt we are now middle-aged men, we can’t play young men just after university anymore. We’ve always said that maybe in 20-years’ time we’ll return to them and see what’s happened to them, or maybe in 40-years’ time we’ll return to them in an old people’s home”, he added.
How exciting is that? While fans eagerly await news of a reboot, there are rumours about a female-led US reboot that has been making the rounds since 2019.

However, since there has been no information on the hopeful British development, it seems like the “El Dude Brothers” won’t be seen together in the near future.
Meanwhile, the female-led American version of the show is being speculated to release in 2021. Keeping in mind that all productions have been stalled due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the upcoming ‘Peep Show’ US series could most probably release in late 2021 or early 2022.
