Russell Tovey workplace comedy The Job Lot has also been recommissioned, but will move to ITV2 for its next series.

Vicious - which stars McKellen and Jacobi as a gay couple - was previously confirmed to be returning for a Christmas special.

Jacobi claimed back in May that a second series might not shoot until 2014, due to his co-star McKellen's busy film schedule.
