Will there be a series 6 of Friday Night Dinner?


On May 13th, 2019, Channel 4 confirmed that they will produce a season 6 of Friday Night Dinner.

Series 1 reached colossal viewing figures of 1.5 million before the latest season 5 finished up with similar stats.

Produced by Big Talk Productions, it’s clear that producers are keen to pick up where the figures left off.

Kenton Allen, Big Talk CEO said:

Friday Night Dinner has grown into a monster hit for Channel 4 and it’s incredibly exciting to see the audience growing every season as new viewers fall in love with the antics of the Goodman household.

When will season 6 air?

Season 6 is set to air from Friday, March 27th.

The series will air for six episodes, airing weekly on Channel 4 at 10 pm. Episode 1 is called caravan and has been described by Channel 4 as the following:

Adam and Jonny arrive at Mum and Dad’s house discussing their big news: they’ve both got girlfriends. The question is, should they tell Mum? Meanwhile, Dad has bought a ‘dustbin-on-wheels’ caravan. He’s practically been living in it all week and now wants the family to have dinner in there. But Mum refuses to step foot inside and has even resorted to communicating with Dad via walkie-talkie.

Later, Jim arrives with his new dog: his house has flooded, and he wants to know if he can eat his dinner in the ‘special little house’ on the driveway… But after a terrible incident involving Jim, the caravan’s chemical toilet and Mum’s beloved carpet, will the family be forced to spend the evening in the ‘crapmobile’ after all?

Which cast members are returning?

All of them!

Fortunately, there will be no changes to the cast list, with all of your favourite stars returning to their usual roles.

This means Tamsin Greig, Paul Ritter, Simon Bird and Tom Rosenthal returning as the Goodman Family, with Mark Heap as Jim.

It also starred Frances Cuka as Grandma Nelly, who sadly passed away on Sunday, February 16th 2020, aged 83.

Meet Johnny!

Johnny is played by Tom Rosenthal and is one of two brothers, making up the family of four.

The 31-year-old is also an actor on Plebs and a stand-up comedian.

He is starting to appear more on panel shows too, and recently featured on new Comedy Central programme Roast Battle, where he called fellow comedian Chris Ramsey a “Lego haired lesbian”.

Tom also has a very unique Instagram page, where he gifts his 44,000 followers with the same pose in every picture.

Of course, that’s him putting up his fingers in various places across the world.
