News: Not Going Out Returns In Early 2021

A new series of the hit Lee Mack sitcom Not Going Out is due to start in January 2021. The new series starts on Friday, 8th January at 9.30pm.

Hot on the heels of the New Year’s Eve special on Wednesday 30th December 2020 at 9pm, we re-join Lee (Lee Mack) and Lucy (Sally Bretton) as a neighbour’s delivery is left with them for safekeeping.  When Lee unknowingly pulls apart the packaging only to discover it’s not his, but also it’s a somewhat personal item, and, to top it off, there’s no way to hide it’s been opened, how will he un-awkwardly get it back to its rightful owner?  With the usually calm Toby (Hugh Dennis) on hand to help, surely a catastrophic drama can be averted?  Of course not…

Over the series, who could possibly predict that a pub quiz might prove a highly competitive environment for the always-right Anna (Abigail Cruttenden), or that Lee’s disaster-magnet dad, Frank (Bobby Ball), introducing a new girlfriend would immediately raise questions of her intent, or even sanity.  Other threats to suburban bliss occur as an old flame makes contact with Lee via social media and when Lucy’s generally pompous dad Geoffrey (Geoffrey Whitehead), trying to apply military scheduling to a family trip, inadvertently forces Lucy’s lovely mum Wendy (Deborah Grant) to reveal a long-held family secret.

Produced by Avalon, Not Going Out is directed by Nick Wood and produced by Jamie Rix.  It was commissioned by Charlotte Moore, Chief Content Officer and Shane Allen, Controller Comedy Commissioning. The Executive Producers are Richard Allen-Turner, Rob Aslett, Lee Mack and Jon Thoday. The Commissioning Editor for the BBC is Gregor Sharp.
