Shalom! After another generous helping of Goodman family misfortune, Friday Night Dinner is set for the final service of its sixth run - so grab yourself some squirrel, make for the shed, and follow our guide as we tell you how to watch the Friday Night Dinner season finale online from anywhere tonight.

Friday Night Dinner cheat sheet

The Goodman family made their debut on UK TV screens back in 2011, while the season 6 finale of Friday Night Dinner is tonight (Friday, May 1) at 10pm. It airs on Channel 4. 

The new series has treated us to a schmoigel of new disasters, including Martin's ill-fated purchase of a caravan, Aunty Val's adventures in online dating, and of course... a plastic bag stuck up a tree.

For the uninitiated, the show centres on eccentric Jewish family the Goodmans and sons Jonny (Tom Rosenthal) and Adam (Simon Bird). Pissface and Pussface, as the siblings affectionately refer to each other, visit their parents Jackie (Tamsin Greig) and Martin (Paul Ritter) for dinner every Friday - and are interrupted by oddball neighbour Jim (Mark Heap) without fail.

Season 6 draws to a close tonight with 'The Females', when it looks like we're finally going to get to meet Jonny and Adam's mysterious girlfriends. With a seventh series still unconfirmed, this could be our last ever meal with the Goodmans - so read on to find out how to watch the Friday Night Dinner season finale from anywhere in the world.
