Series format and production info
Mrs Brown’s Boys is a BBC One sitcom airing in the United Kingdom since 2011. The last completed third series premiered on January 1, 2013. The show was created and written by and stars Irish comic Brendan O’Carroll and is produced by BBC Scotland, BOC-PIX and RTÉ. The series also aired a large number of specials, the most recent of which is a one-off live special which aired on July 23, 2016.
O’Carroll plays Agnes Brown, his drag persona from early 1990s, and his friends and family members round up the cast. The series is set in Ireland, and recorded in front of a live studio audience at BBC Pacific Quay Studios in Glasgow, Scotland. The program begins with Agnes breaking the fourth wall and addressing the audience in a monologue, and while there’s a storyline, the events that occur and the characters’ dialogue are mostly improvised.
Ratings success and future specials
Mrs. Brown’s Boys is an unbelievable ratings success in the UK, Scotland, Ireland and beyond, while the critical reviews of the show have been almost unanimously poor. Furthermore, the show has garnered numerous significant awards, including a BAFTA for Best Situation Comedy, several National Television Awards and a British Academy Scotland Award. The latest special aired to an incredible audience of 8.82 million viewers. It has been announced that while there will not be a fourth series, the program will continue with two Christmas specials per year at least until 2020, so we are expecting one in a few months. Stay tuned for exact release time information.
