Agnes Brown has been on the scene since 1990, and has seen many different iterations through the years. From a radio show, to the silver-screen, to the sitcom classic, Mrs. Brown’s Boys. The popular series began in 2011, and will be returning for a new mini-series, this week.

But what about the future of the Queen of Dublin Town? Well, she has big plans!

Creator Brendan O’Carroll confessed that he is hoping to take Agnes across the pond, and break America. Telling The Sun: “I have always said no to breaking America because I live there in Florida and I love the peace and quiet.

“But lately I’ve thought it would be nice to see the ­reaction of Americans to Mrs Brown.”

And the foundations for a Hollywood take-over have already begun, as Mrs Brown appeared in Tyler Perry’s A Madea Homecoming in 2022.

And there is talk of another collaboration between Agnes and Madea, as Brendan explained: “We are thinking of making another film. This time with Madea and Mrs Brown going on safari.”

But to start their venture to America, the Mrs Brown live-show is heading stateside, with gigs in Baltimore, New York, Chicago and Philadelphia.


In the meantime, fans have the new season to enjoy, and it is set to be a special one as Brendan has revealed that they will pay tribute to the late entertainers Barry Humphries, known for his stage character Dame Edna Everage, and Paul O’Grady.

While sitting down to write for the new four-part series of Mrs Brown’s Boys, the Dublin native shared how he took the chance to “say goodbye” to Barry and Paul who both passed away earlier this year.

Australian entertainer Barry, who died in April aged 89, was known for his satirical characters which included Dame Edna and Sir Les Patterson.

While Paul, who died in March aged 67, rose to fame as persona Lily Savage before going on to host a string of TV programmes.

Speaking to RTÉ, Brendan revealed: “I always try and put a little message, if I can, into every one of them (episodes).

“In this whole series… I wanted to say goodbye to Dame Edna and to Paul.

“So, it was hard to find that spot but I did find it, within the series, I did find it.

Adding: “I don’t tell the BBC these things, I just do them.”

The new season of Mrs Brown’s Boys will return to BBC One at 9.30pm on Friday, 8 September and will be screened on RTÉ One later in the Autumn.
