Popular BBC comedy Mrs Brown's Boys is unlikely to return for a new series this year after plans to film a handful of special episodes were put on hold. One of the show's stars Fiona O’Carroll admitted in an interview that plans to release a mini-series in 2022 have been scrapped.

It followed rumours that the cast were reuniting, with filming reportedly scheduled for April. It means fans will now have to wait until 2023 before the project takes shape, the Daily Star reports.

Fiona cited "various reasons" for the decision. She said it was hard to get everyone together and booking studio time has proven to be difficult due to Covid-19.

Fiona, who plays Maria Brown in the sitcom, has said: “Well, you know what this industry is like. There is lots of talk and lots of talk and until it is happening you will never really know.”

"We were supposed to be doing a mini series this year but, unfortunately, due to various different reasons it didn't happen. So, there is talk of it happening next year, a possible mini series."

She told Ireland AM: “It's not just down to us, it's down to studio time, it's down to crew and it’s down to cast. With Covid, it was a massively turbulent time. There is a huge backlog and all artists and productions are fighting for time and space.”

Fans will be able to see the cast on tour in the summer, followed by Ireland later in the year. Fiona said plans for Mrs Brown’s Boys Christmas and New Year special episodes are also in the works ahead of the festive season.
