BBC sitcom Miranda to return with 10th anniversary special

The show's finale aired on New Year's Day 2015

BBC sitcom Miranda looks set to return to our screens nearly five years after airing its final episode.

The show's creator, comedian and actress Miranda Hart, revealed today (July 19) that the cast will reunite later this year for a one-hour special to mark 10 years since it all began.

Writing on Twitter, the star told her fans "such fun news alert!" and announced: "Hello to you - I am with news. So, in November it will be 10 years since the first episode of Miranda aired. We are 10!

"And we have decided to have a party. The Miranda cast on and off screen are all about to play, being free to be ourselves and silliness, so we are amazed and delighted that BBC One have agreed that our celebrations will be recorded as a one-hour special later in the year.

"I will keep you posted, but I suspect there might just be some special guests, probably the odd bit of dancing, definitely some drinks and nibbles."

In November it will be 10 years since the first episode of Miranda aired. We are 10!

She continued: "And you know what I hope it will be - SUCH FUN for us, but more importantly for you, all you lovely friends of the show for whom I shall be forever grateful for your support. See you soon."

ED! has contacted the BBC for comment.

Miranda launched in 2009 on BBC Two before moving to BBC One. The show ran for three series and concluded with a two-part special airing over the 2014/15 Christmas period.

Actress Miranda delighted fans of the show earlier this year by reuniting with her on-screen husband in support of Comic Relief.

In March, the star posted a video on her official YouTube account and surprised fans when actor Tom Ellis, who played Gary Preston in the programme, came into shot unannounced.

After a short comedy skit, Miranda pulled Tom towards her and said: "Look who it is. Say hello! It's my on-screen hubby."

Tom replied, "We're married now" and the pair laughed, hugged and kissed before Miranda added, "We're Garried."

Last year, rumours surfaced that Miranda was crossing the Atlantic with a US remake being created by actor Jim Parsons, best known as Sheldon Cooper from The Big Bang Theory.

And it appears actress Sarah Hadland, who played Miranda's best pal and colleague Stevie, wants to be involved.

Speaking to RadioTimes.com in February, she said: "Somebody told me there's going to be an American version of Miranda. There'll be an American Stevie, surely. I don't know who would be an American Stevie. OK, I'll start my campaign to be in it."
