Peter Kay recently shared that he’s still brewing ideas for a comeback of his beloved comedy series, Phoenix Nights, more than two decades after its last episode.
In his upcoming book, “T.V.: Big Adventures on the Small Screen,” where he reminisces about his involvement in various television projects, Kay discloses his aspiration to revive the Phoenix.
In the original series, co-created with Neil Fitzmaurice and Dave Spikey, which aired back in 2001, over two decades ago, he portrayed the characters of Brian Potter, the wheelchair-bound club owner, and Max, the bouncer.
Kay hinted in his book, as he has in the past, that Phoenix Nights could make a return in the form of a film. Additionally, he unveiled plans for a Christmas special for the spin-off series Max and Paddy’s Road to Nowhere.
The show ended on a note of celebration as Brian’s reputation is restored, but he lets Jerry (Dave Spikey) stay as the club’s licensee and everyone except Max and Paddy have a celebration.
According to The Sun, as Kay has in the past, he reveals that he still gets ideas for Phoenix Nights episodes.
He wrote: “I still write down ideas. I had an idea only today of Brian getting Young Kenny to paint an enormous letter ‘H’ on the roof of the club so he can advertise they’ve got a helicopter pad.
“The chance of a helicopter ever landing is, of course, zero. As the years pass, I’m becoming more like Brian, but if Phoenix Nights rose again it’d have to be for something very special, maybe a film?”
“Perhaps Brian could get visited by three ghosts. Now, wouldn’t that be an idea?”
