'Never Mind the Buzzcocks' Set For TV Return

News Image
Popular UK pop culture panel show 'Never Mind the Buzzcocks' is set to return to our TV screens.

The new series of the show will air exclusively on Sky and NOW as a Sky Original with 'Taskmaster' comic Greg Davies hosting.

Commenting on the announcement, Davies said: "I have always loved 'Never Mind the Buzzcocks' and am thrilled to be the new host on Sky. We have brilliant comedic talent on the team and plenty of exciting musical guests will be joining us. All that being said, I'm so sure that no one reads these press quotes in their entirety that I'm going to finish by listing types of bread: rye, sourdough, sliced white. Oh, and cob."

Returning to the show, Noel Fielding ('The Mighty Boosh', 'The Great British Bake Off') will be a team captain opposite Daisy May Cooper ('This Country'), with Jamali Maddix ('Hate Thy Neighbour') featuring as a regular guest. Each week they will be joined by a roster of top music and comedy stars to compete against each other. Viewers can expect the unpredictability of the original series, with some of the best known and loved rounds remaining, alongside some new surprises thrown in along the way.

Director of Programmes for Talkback, Kate Edmunds, added: "We're over the moon that Sky have made the very wise decision to reboot our beloved Buzzcocks. Musicians, stand down, we hear your deafening cries for some long overdue attention. The outrageously talented Greg, Daisy, Noel and Jamali are more than happy to oblige."

The new series of 'Never Mind the Buzzcocks' will air this autumn on Sky for an eight-episode stint. It will be followed by a one-off Christmas special later this year.
