Bring back Two Pints of Lager and a packet of crisps for a 'reunion' series

This petition had 329 supporters

Two Pints of Lager and a Packet of Crisps is a British comedy television series sitcom that ran from 26 February 2001 to 24 May 2011 and starred Sheridan Smith, Will Mellor, Ralf Little, Natalie Casey, Kathryn Drysdale and Luke Gell. Created and written by Susan Nickson, it is set in the town of Runcorn in Cheshire, England, and originally revolves around the lives of five twenty-somethings. Ralf Little departed after the airing of the sixth series with Sheridan Smith and Kathryn Drysdale leaving following the airing of the eighth series. The ninth and final series had major changes with new main cast members and new writers.

The core cast have been augmented by various recurring characters throughout the series, including Beverly Callard, Lee Oakes, Hayley Bishop, Alison Mac, Thomas Nelstrop and Jonathon Dutton. The show was first broadcast in 2001 on BBC Two. The title was inspired by the 1980 hit single “Two Pints of Lager and a Packet of Crisps Please” by Splodgenessabounds.[1] On 23 July 2011, it was confirmed that the series would not be returning due to BBC Three wanting to make room for new comedies and feeling that the series had come to a natural end following the departures of most of the main cast members.

This petition is to get Two Pints BACK on air with another series, or even to re-run the original 9 series, and to try and catch the attention of the BBC.

I Believe that there is a STRONG audience for this show, and it would be extremely popular if it is revived, as there has now been a significant enough amount of time passed to warrant new stories, and even have it in different locations.

If you are a fan of this show, and agree with the fact that this popular series could be successfully revived, or simply re-aired, then PLEASE, sign the petition!
