The fourth season of Armando Iannucci’s political comedy series The Thick Of It will premiere on BBC Two on Saturday September 8th at 9:45pm, it has been announced.

In the show’s seven episode fourth season, things have changed at DoSAC (Department of Social Affairs and Citizenship). Peter Mannion MP is now the Secretary of State for The Department of Social Affairs and Citizenship (DoSAC), supported by his team of special advisors, commanded by Number 10’s Director of Communications Stewart Pearson (Vincent Franklin) and thwarted by his new Coalition partner, DOSAC’s Junior Minister Fergus Williams MP (Geoffrey Streatfeild). Also returning for season 4 is Nicola Murray MP (Rebecca Front) and foul-mouthed spin doctor Malcolm Tucker (Peter Capaldi). Both of whom are now consigned to Her Majesty’s Loyal Opposition, but still desperately hoping for a return to power.

In the opening episode, tensions are running high in DoSAC. It is launch day for ‘Silicon Playgrounds’, the Coalition’s new digital youth policy master-minded by Junior Minister Fergus Williams. Number 10’s spin doctor Stewart Pearson delivers the bombshell that the PM wants digital-illiterate Peter Mannion to launch the policy, rather than Fergus. What could possibly go wrong with that? All Fergus gets left with is drawing up the list of staff redundancies, and Terri Coverley is pretty sure she can make his hit list if she plays her cards right, finding help from an unexpected direction.
