Netflix Fans go Wild as Streaming Confirms Hit Show is Returning


Peep Show enthusiasts have reason to celebrate as Netflix recently confirmed that the beloved classic UK comedy show will remain on the streaming service for at least another year.

Originally, the show was slated for removal entirely from Netflix on September 29, with September 28 as the last day for fans to watch. However, an observant viewer noticed a change and reached out to Netflix via Twitter, inquiring, “hi @NetflixUK – the date warning badge has now been removed from Peep Show… can you confirm??” To the joy of fans, Netflix’s official Twitter account promptly responded, saying, “It was decided this would have been so not Rainbow Rhythms, so Peep Show will remain on Netflix.”

Fans expressed their elation over the decision, with one individual remarking, “great decision to reverse a terrible call to remove PS,” while another concurred, “I think you made the right decision.” A third fan chimed in with enthusiasm, stating, “This is phenomenal, yes Netflix.”

Earlier this month, Netflix had announced that it would remove popular comedy series Peep Show and Fresh Meat from its catalog the following month. Peep Show, which aired from 2003 to 2015, encompassed 54 episodes spanning nine series and featured David Mitchell and Robert Webb as two dysfunctional flatmates. Fresh Meat, created by the same duo, starred Jack Whitehall and followed the lives of six students at Manchester University. It ran from 2011 until 2016.

In addition to the Peep Show news, Netflix has officially confirmed the return of its beloved legal drama, “The Lincoln Lawyer,” for a third season. This announcement brought relief to fans who had worried that the series might face cancellation, considering Netflix’s history of axing shows like “Young Wallander” and the later-resurrected “Warrior Nun.”

The second season of “The Lincoln Lawyer” concluded on August 3, paving the way for another 10 episodes that will delve into the life of LA-based lawyer Mickey Haller. Season three is set to be based on the fifth book in Michael Connelly’s series, titled “The Gods of Guilt,” with Manuel Garcia-Rulfo reprising his role as Mickey Haller. Garcia-Rulfo will once again share the screen with Becki Newton (Lorna), Jazz Raycole (Izzy), Angus Sampson (Cisco), and Yaya DaCosta (Andrea Freemann).

However, one notable absence from the upcoming season is Neve Campbell, who will not return as a series regular. Her character, Maggie, is conspicuously missing from Connelly’s fifth book, signaling a shift in the series’s narrative.
