'Peep Show' is set to come to an end, according to Channel 4's head of comedy.

Phil Clarke has told Chortle that there are currently discussions happening with creators Sam Bain and Jesse Armstrong about how and when the 10-year-old series will reach its conclusion.

Peep Show's Robert Webb and David Mitchell

"We're talking about 'Peep Show', how that's going to be rounded off," he said. "The discussion is about how it's going to conclude."

Viewers will have a least one more series to enjoy, as a ninth run of the David Mitchell and Robert Webb fronted comedy has already been commissioned.

Robert told Digital Spy, back in 2011, that the stars of the show wanted it to continue for as long as possible.

"I think the four of us sort of made an informal pact really, as soon as the second series was commissioned, that we want to do for as long as they'll let us," he said.

"There are so many really great sitcoms that could have gone on much longer, but there was this idea that you do two series and you walk away and you're a bit cool about."
