How long until The Inbetweeners reunite for a third film

So the The Inbetweeners have apparently officially called it a day after seeing their TV series and two films soar to surprising heights. The Channel 4 show about four British teens in their final years of school was a hit but I doubt anyone could have imagined how well the films would do both in the UK and to a lesser extent overseas. Film4 Productions will undoubtedly be gutted that the profitable gross out comedy can't keep being squeezed for a few more films worth but though the cast might be adamant, I bet there will come a time when they return to their old roles.


The Monty Python guys admitted needing the money, Indiana Jones had a crystal skull to find and Bill and Ted will soon be back as old timers in a third film. Nothing stays dead anymore. Rage Against The Machine, McBusted, Take That. Everything comes back whether we like it or not. So even if it takes 20 years, I bet The Inbetweeners will be back. Start placing your bets on how long it will take.

The cast will likely be in their 40s and struggling with parenthood so there will still be plenty of room for poop jokes. Or maybe (depending on the success of the next Ghostbusters film) they will all be even older and the guys will now have teen daughters. That way, the film will spin off into another TV series as The Inbetweeners gets rebooted with an all female cast. However they make it happen, I guarantee it WILL happen. Surely actors Simon Bird, James Buckley, Blake Harrison and Joe Thomas will run out of money sooner or later and the whopping great pay cheque dangling in front of their face will look more appealing than it does currently.

Let's just hope that when it does come, The Inbetweeners 3 does better than the US version of the TV series.

What do you think? Have you had enough of The Inbetweeeners?
