This will be the show’s first season since 2013.

The comedy sitcom Mrs Brown’s Boys is coming back soon for a new season after a 10-year hiatus.

Brendan O’Carroll will reprise his role as foul-mouthed Irish mammy Agnes Brown for the first time since 2013, outside of one-off Christmas specials and film appearances.

Fans of the show will be thrilled to hear that four new episodes will drop early next month, as confirmed by the BBC.

However, while it has been announced that RTÉ will also be showing the miniseries, it has yet to give an exact date as to when they will be airing it.

In the meantime though, BBC has confirmed its return on BBC One for Friday, 8 September.

For those not aware, the series centres around Agnes, a loud-mouthed matriarch who lives with and meddles in the lives of her six sons and daughter in Dublin, assuming the headship of the family following her husband’s death.

Much of the cast of the comedy sitcom is related in real life, with O’Carroll’s wife, Jennifer Gibney, starring as his on-screen daughter, Cathy.

The show – despite not being a critics’ fave – has won a BAFTA for ‘Best Situation Comedy’ in 2012, as well as multiple prizes from the National Television Awards UK and the Irish Film and Television Awards over the years.
