Posted on Friday, October 31st, 2014 by Germain Lussier
After multiple successful TV shows with partner Ricky Gervais, Stephen Merchant didn’t have the same success with the HBO show
. It had some fans, both critical and general, but never caught hold of pop culture like other HBO shows and was thought to be done after one season. Well, in classic Merchant fashion, the series is getting one more shot to wrap everything up. HBO will air
HBO announced the news via press release, which we saw on Indiewire. A TV movie is a fitting end to the series, simply because that’s how Merchant has closed out his other shows such as

When Stuart learns that his British ex-girlfriend is planning to visit Los Angeles with her husband, he sets out to impress them with his glamorous lifestyle, enlisting a Russian model he’s just met to play the role of his beautiful girlfriend. What could go wrong?
Starring Stephen Merchant (co-creator of the Golden Globe-winning BBC comedy series “The Office” and HBO’s “Extras”) as Stuart, HELLO LADIES: THE MOVIE wraps up his story when it debuts SATURDAY, NOV. 22 (10:00-11:20 p.m. ET/PT), exclusively on HBO.
