A strange, surreal comedy show, The Mighty Boosh became a cult hit during its three season run on the BBC, before the duo behind the series decided to take some time away. 

Noel Fielding and Julian Barratt, who remained friends but decided to pursue other projects, decided that they needed to take a break away after a long tour with a live show based on the series.

Speaking to The Nerdist podcast, Fielding revealed that the two have decided to come back together to write something new after several years apart, but as yet they had no idea what form that would take.

"Me and Julian have just started – we sort of had a big break - we never weren’t friends, we carried on being friends because we live in the same street, so we see each other all the time, and we’ve just recently started thinking we should write something again. So hopefully this year we’re going to have a crack at something. No idea what … we’re just going to see what happens".

The last time the pair worked together was back in 2009, when they toured with The Mighty Boosh live show.
