FRIDAY Night Dinner will return in spring as Channel 4 confirms season 6 has finished filming.

The hit comedy stars Tamsin Greig, Paul Ritter, Simon Bird and Tom Rosenthal as a Jewish family who get together every Friday for a meal.

While there had been concern about the show's future, Channel 4's head of comedy Fiona McDermott has reassured fans the comedy will be back, and soon.

She told LADbible: "We're delighted that audiences love Friday Night Dinner as much as we do at Channel 4, and are thrilled that it will be returning.

"It's always brilliant when audiences for a show grow over time and we're thrilled that more and more people are falling in love with the Goodmans."

Back in October, show creator Robert Popper revealed filming had begun for season six, sharing a picture of a clapperboard on Twitter.

He said: "I'm really looking forward to exploring new avenues with series 6. Inspector de Vries (Paul) will still be working on the Rynsburger case, but this time he's joined by new partner-in-crime, Mees Janssen(Tom), fresh out of Rotterdam Police Academy.

"Eva de Bruin (Tamsin) is now trying to regain control of her pharmaceutical company, after an aggressive takeover-bid by the always-cunning Sem Teuling (Simon). But can 'Vos' (Mark Heap) and his faithful dog, 'de Welson' save the day?

Kenton Allen, CEO of Big Talk Productions added in a statement: "Friday Night Dinner has grown into a monster hit for Channel 4 and it's incredibly exciting to see the audience growing every season as new viewers fall in love with the antics of the Goodman household.

'It's also incredible that Robert has single-handedly written and produced all 31 episodes so far, which must make him one of the most prolific comedy writer/producers working today.

"We're incredibly grateful to Channel 4 for letting him have another go. Fingers crossed!"

The show follows brothers Adam and Jonathan Goodman as they go home every Friday for a meal with their eccentric parents.

The dinner is often interrupted by various incidents or people, including their odd neighbour Jim Bell and 'Auntie Val', played by Tracy-Ann Oberman.
