It was previously reported in 2020 that show creator Brendan signed a new deal with the broadcaster to keep Mrs. Brown’s Boys on the air until 2026.
He added that the new contract guarantees that every festive edition he creates will be given a coveted slot of 10pm every Christmas Day.
If they are not given the spot, they are reportedly not obliged to make the Christmas episode at all.
Brendan told the Irish Sun: ‘We’ve been doing it for nine years already – which is six more than The Royle Family had and more than Morecambe and Wise.
‘This new deal we signed last week goes all the way to 2026, which means I will be able to grow into the part, and we’ve a clause in which guarantees Mrs Brown is aired at 10pm on Christmas night, or else we don’t have to make it.’

The show has received a number of awards including the 2012 BAFTA Television Award for Best Situation Comedy and Best Comedy at the TV Choice Awards the same year.
Brenden was nominated for the BAFTA for Best Male Performance in a Comedy Programme in 2012 but lost out to Darren Boyd for his role in the Sky comedy series Spy.
