Friday Night Dinner‘s sixth series finally has a premiere date, and it looks like we won’t have long to wait for more disastrous shenanigans with the Goodmans.
It has been confirmed that the long-running Channel 4 comedy will return to screens on Friday, March 27 at 10pm, with creator Robert Popper confirming the news on his social media.
You can watch a new trailer (above), which comes nearly a year after Popper revealed that a sixth series would be happening.
He joked at the time the new series was announced: “I’m really looking forward to exploring new avenues with series 6.
“Inspector de Vries (Paul Ritter) will still be working on the Rynsburger case, but this time he’s joined by new partner-in-crime, Mees Janssen (Tom Rosenthal), fresh out of Rotterdam Police Academy.

“Eva de Bruin (Tamsin Greig) is now trying to regain control of her pharmaceutical company, after an aggressive takeover-bid by the always-cunning Sem Teuling (Simon Bird). But can ‘Vos’ (Mark Heap) and his faithful dog, ‘de Welson’ save the day?”
The sitcom actually focuses on the weekly Friday night dinners of the Goodman family, which always inevitably end up in disaster.
Of course, we imagine the next series will explore the aftermath of that devastating death at the end of series five (which we’re still not over, frankly).
Friday Night Dinner will return to Channel 4 on March 27 at 10pm.
