Steve Pemberton and Reece Shearsmith say: "In the greatest plot twist ever, the BBC have commissioned another two series from us, taking "Inside No.9" to series 9. Since 2014, it has been the greatest gift to conjure these stories into being and we are thrilled there's still an appetite for more. What horrible surprises are there left to uncover? We remain as delighted and curious as you to find out."
Series eight and nine will stay true to show's anthology format with each series containing six brand new half hour films, each set in a different location. The style and tone changing each week, combining a different mix of horror, thriller, drama and comedy - always aiming to surprise, delight, unnerve and amuse.
