Mrs Brown’s Boys will RETURN for four episodes in 2023 after Christmas special… as Brendan O’Carroll says he gets ‘goosebumps’ knowing the sitcom has become part of festive traditions

Mrs Brown’s Boys will be returning for four episodes in 2023 after the Christmas Day special episode.

Actor Brendan O’Carroll, 67, who stars as Agnes Brown, revealed that postponed filming during Covid meant there was a rush to book venues, which left them unable to feed the fans’ needs for more Mrs Brown.

The Irish comedian, who created the sitcom, also admitted he gets ‘goosebumps’ knowing the show has become a Christmas tradition for people each year.

Speaking to The Sun’s TV Mag, Brendan explained that the mini-series was intended to celebrate 100 years of the BBC.

He detailed that the BBC was ‘adamant’ that they got four episodes so they went on to book studios for 2023 to begin filming then. 

The Dublin native went on to tell the publication of his gratitude for people seeing his award-winning show as their Christmas staple.

He said: ‘I absolutely love it – I get goosebumps that Mrs Brown has become part of Christmas.

‘That’s what people who come to the show say – “Ah, it wouldn’t be Christmas without Mrs Brown”. You’re kinda going “Oh my God, we established that”.

‘Because in my day that was Morecambe and Wise, it wasn’t Christmas without Morecambe and Wise, so it’s a buzz.’

This year’s Mrs Brown’s Boys Christmas special will air on BBC One at 10.25pm after EastEnders.

With the episode title called ‘Shining Mammy’, the synopsis reads: ‘It’s Christmas in Finglas once again, and this year Cathy has a new boyfriend, Boris.

‘A last-minute change of plans leaves Agnes babysitting the widower’s twins while he and Cathy head to Foley’s for a quiet, romantic drink.

‘Not everyone is convinced he’s right for Cathy, and there are even suspicions that he might be a vampire.

‘But it’s not Boris that Agnes is worried about; she has her own concerns over his creepy twins.’

A second 2022 special will be aired on New Year’s Day at 10pm, called ‘Mammy’s Hair Loom’.

The synopsis explains: ‘Suspicion surrounds Cathy’s creepy boyfriend, Boris.

‘Buster and Dermot are convinced he is a vampire and hatch a plan to save Cathy, which leaves her mortified.

‘Sharon has boyfriend troubles of her own, and Father Damien has been called away to tend to some depressed chickens.

‘Meanwhile, Buster convinces Agnes she should have her antique vase valued. Who knows how much it could be worth?’After all, it has been handed down through generations, and she plans to leave it to Cathy as her inheritance.’
