After a couple of years off TV, during which time the creative team made a film (In The Loop) and a major US series (Veep), The Thick of it is back for its fourth series.
The magnificent political satire has not been on our screens since before the election of the coalition government so this new 7-part series covers just that and the new trailer, which you can see below is call ‘Coalition’.
All the major characters – Peter Mannion (Roger Allam), Nicola Murray (Rebecca Front) and TV’s greatest swearer Malcolm Tucker (Peter Capaldi) – return and this time the humour looks set to be derived from the major parties struggling with being forced to work together. Should be great stuff.
The series starts on BBC2 on September the 8th. Here’s the trailer.
