Gavin & Stacey co-creator Ruth Jones has promised that she’ll make one other TV show with James Corden sooner or later.
The pair launched Gavin & Stacey on BBC Three in 2007, which ran for 3 seasons, and returned final Christmas for a one-off particular.
One of the show’s stars, Alison Steadman, has mentioned the show is “unlikely” to return after the current particular, regardless of being left on a big cliffhanger, and Jones has mentioned that whereas a future undertaking with Corden “is probably not Gavin & Stacey,” that “it’ll be something”.
Speaking to The Telegraph‘s Stella journal, Jones revealed that she and Corden had tried to put in writing a new show collectively throughout the coronavirus lockdown.
“James and I did Zoom a few times. But we didn’t do any writing. In fact, I remember us both saying how uncreative we both felt,” she mentioned.
“And since then we’ve not even mentioned work, just talked about the family and how we’re feeling. It does seem like a waste doesn’t it, not to have spent all those lockdown hours writing? But I just couldn’t get into the groove.”
Speaking of how she took within the new particular, which aired on Christmas Day 2019, Jones added: “We all watched it round at James’s house, and when it ended James’s younger sister Ruth just screamed: ‘No! You can’t end it there!’”
Speaking about whether or not one other collection of the show is within the works, she added: “There’s nothing in the diary. We are both pretty busy.”
Gavin & Stacey returned to BBC tv on Saturday nights throughout the coronavirus lockdown to carry the nation’s spirits.
Reviewing final 12 months’s Christmas particular, NME wrote: “Corden and Jones have crafted a near-perfect celebration of every part that made the show so nice within the first place. Die-hard followers might need minor quibbles with an absence of character development, however it’s clear Corden and Jones have resurrected their beloved child with vastly profitable outcomes.
“Time will tell whether a more permanent return to Barry is on the cards, but without saying anything else, we certainly wouldn’t rule it out. All will become clear.”
