The Green Green Grass is a 
British sitcom, created and initially written by John Sullivan, produced by Shazam Productions and broadcast by the BBC. It is a spin-off of the classic comedy series Only Fools and Horses. Four series were originally broadcast on BBC One in the United Kingdom between 2005 and 2009, with Christmas specials broadcast from 2005 to 2007.

Set in Oakham in 
Shropshire, it stars John Challis as Aubrey Boyce, a gentleman farmer, Sue Holderness as his wife Marlene and Jack Doolan as their son Tyler.

The sitcom was a ratings success from its debut to the last episode in 2009. The 
debut episode attracted an enormous nine million viewers and later episodes regularly attracted audiences of around five to six million – a large number of viewers for a modern day situation comedy. The fourth series, in 2009, attracted around four million viewers per episode, still a successful level of viewership, however the BBC took the decision to shelve the production of the series.

It was announced in The Mirror, that the series had been axed,
