The British Asian comedy, last seen on our screens in 2001, will return in a one-off, as part of BBC2's 50th-anniversary celebrations
Goodness Gracious Me, one of British TV's most successful Asian programmes, is to return for the first time since 2001.
The cast will reunite for a one-off special as part of BBC2's half-century celebrations. The news emerged after the BBC advertised for audience members to watch the filming. The advert read: "To celebrate 50 years of comedy on BBC2, the original cast of the award winning Goodness Gracious Me are back for a special one-off edition of the ground-breaking British Asian sketch show featuring new characters alongside some favourites from the original series in a wealth of brand new sketches."
