Are You Being Served? is a British sitcom that aired on BBC One.

Airing for ten seasons over more than a decade, the show's success included a stage play that was later adapted into a feature film made and released during its run. Overseas, it led to an Australian remake and failed attempt at an American remake. Years after its end, all the mainstay cast reunited in the sequel series Grace & Favour.
