Graham Linehan says there's absolutely no chance of a Father Ted revival

Maybe it’s just better off this way… maybe.

FATHER TED FANS will either be overjoyed or disappointed to hear this. The show’s creator and co-writer Graham Linehan has quashed any hopes that the series could be set for a revival.

Speaking to, Linehan has said that there’s “no chance” of the show ever returning to our screens.

While his production company Delightful Industries are often sent priest-related pitches, it’s still a firm no.

A Dougal spin-off?

I would never bring Dougal back. Someone suggested to me a way of doing it but I am totally different person now. We have said everything we have to about the imaginary world of priests.

That’s another no then.

But was it ever going to?



Ah well, we still have The Walshes to look forward to.
