Exclusive Inside No. 9 Clip for Season 5 of BritBox’s Anthology Series
ComingSoon.net has an exclusive Inside No. 9 clip for the upcoming fifth season of the dark comedy anthology series that will debut on BritBox on March 17. The clip, from the episode titled “Misdirection,” can be viewed now in the player below!
Created by and featuring the British comedy duo that brought you The League of Gentlemen, Reece Shearsmith and Steve Pemberton, this anthology of darkly comic tales all take place inside a location that ties back to the number nine. Whether it’s a room in a popular resort or the top floor of a luxury hotel, the stories quickly go from innocent to insidious often with a killer of a twist ending.
The “Misdirection” episode revolves around an arrogant magician with a dark secret who after agreeing to do an interview finds himself in a cat-and-mouse game with the reporter. Fionn Whitehead (Dunkirk, Black Mirror: Bandersnatch) guest stars and is in the clip with series co-creator Reece Shearsmith.
Known for its rotating guest cast that has in the past featured Derek Jacobi (Gladiator), Fiona Shaw (Killing Eve) and Rory Kinnear (Penny Dreadful), the new batch of twisted tales will feature David Morrissey (The Walking Dead), Jenna Coleman (Victoria), Maxine Peake (Shameless) and Fionn Whitehead (Dunkirk).
“Inside No. 9 is a unique show that has become a fan favorite because of its genuinely unexpected twists,” said Soumya Sriraman, President of BritBox. “[The] anthology series remains just as popular as ever, and we are looking forward to many more seasons of this particular one on our platform.”
