Wallace and Gromit set to return for new film in 2024 as BBC confirms first special in more than a decade
Wallace and Gromit are back on screen more than a decade after their last special, A Matter of Loaf and Death, aired.
The comedy franchise is set to return as the BBC has confirmed that a new spin-off is in the works and set for Christmas 2024.
The spin-off will come from the creative team of Aardman, who are also behind the popular children’s TV series Shaun the Sheep.

The upcoming film will focus on Gromit’s concern that Wallace has become too dependent on his inventions.
His worries are proven when Wallace invents a ‘smart gnome’ that develops a brain of its own.
As events spiral out of control, it falls to Gromit to cast his doubts and fight the sinister forces—or Wallace may never be able to invent again.
The film, created by animation powerhouse Aardman, follows the latest Shaun the Sheep Keeper The Flight Before Christmas, a Wallace & Gromit spin-off, which aired on BBC One last year.

Aardman Managing Director Sean Clark said: ‘Wallace and Gromit are very much loved by everyone at Aardman – they are like family to us – and we couldn’t be more excited to be making a new film for them. ,
“When Nick came up with the concept of a “smart gnome,” we all agreed that Wallace would find the idea irresistible – despite warnings from Gromit, who is intelligent beyond his (canine) years. We are sure that the audience will find the story unique too.
