Vic Reeves and Bob Mortimer are writing a full series of "Vic and Bob's Big Night Out" for 2018.
The comedy duo first worked together on "Vic Reeves Big Night Out" in 1990, launching their successful double act which has continued for 27 years, and they will follow up the upcoming Christmas special with a full series.
Vic told The Sun newspaper: "We're going to start writing a full series of "Big Night Out" in January. We'll spend next year on it.
""Vic and Bob's Big Night Out" is pretty much like "Shooting Stars" without the guests
"TV audiences are a lot older now so if you do a bit of nostalgia, it's always going to appeal to them."
The original variety show parody included the famous catchphrase, "You just couldn't let it lie."
Vic and Bob have gone on to become pillars of British comedy, working together on other hit shows including "The Smell of Reeves and Mortimer", "Shooting Stars" and "House Of Fools".
The new Christmas special will feature a cameo from the pair's old friend and co-star Matt Lucas as singer Rag'n"Bone Man.
Vic - who acts under his real name is Jim Moir - has recently been appearing in ITV soap opera "Coronation Street" as marketing executive Colin Callen, who hoped to take over The Kabin newsagent from Norris Cole.
He said: "I'd like to go back and do some more. They were talking about me doing some more next year."
