This year marks the 10th anniversary of Mrs Brown’s Boys, the sitcom created and starring Brendan O’Carroll which premiered in 2011.

To mark the occasion, a live episode of the show is being released as a Halloween Special, depicting Agnes Brown (Brendan) as she prepares to welcome trick or treaters to her home in Finglas, Ireland.

In the synopsis for the special, it explains that on the night of Halloween Agnes ‘gets more than she bargained for when she receives a surprising visitor from her past’.

However, things take an even spookier turn as Agnes is seemingly the only person who can see her ‘ghostly guest’.

Thankfully, Agnes receives some help so that she can get rid of her unwanted visitor in time to attend Foley’s fancy dress party.

As viewers watch tonight’s special, they may be wondering if Mrs Brown’s Boys will return for more episodes in future.

Will there be a new series of Mrs Brown’s Boys?

While Mrs Brown’s Boys has been on our TV screens since 2011, it’s actually been eight years since a regular season of the show aired.

The sitcom aired for three series from 2011 until 2013.

After that, new episodes have since come out in the form of Christmas and New Year’s Day specials, with one also being released in July in 2016.

The spin-off chat show All Round to Mrs Brown’s aired from 2017 to 2020, failing to return for 2021 due to the pandemic, while the feature film Mrs. Brown’s Boys D’Movie was released in 2014.

Brendan recently announced that the upcoming Christmas episode will pay tribute to crew member Dennis Knotts, who died after contracting Covid.

‘He was the most adorable man and actually, we dedicated the Christmas episode to him, we loved him very much,’ he said.

‘We lost one of the family. There were people who had worked with Dennis for 40 years and they are just devastated; they can’t believe it.’

It appears unlikely that the programme would return for a regular series in future.

However, there could be more specials on the cards. We’ll just have to wait and see.
