ITV has confirmed that The John Bishop Show is to return for an end-of-year special, and a second series in 2023.
The network says: “After completing a hugely successful sold-out arena tour and starring in the latest series of Doctor Who, John is back for six more shows bringing viewers a mix of his trademark everyman stand-up, reviewing the week’s events and shooting the breeze with some very special celebrity guests from the world of film, TV, music and sport.”
The recommission follows on from the first series, which was broadcast in January and February.
The new series will be preceded by The John Bishop End Of Year Show, a special described as “an irreverent look back at 2022“.
Bishop comments: “I was delighted with the response to the first series. It was great to give viewers a Saturday night show that offered an entertaining mix of comedy, interesting guests and topical discussion. I can’t wait to do another series. And before that, I’m really looking forward to my end of year show – but its been such a quiet year, I don’t know what I will talk about..!”
Commissioner Katie Rawcliffe comments: “We are thrilled to have John back at the helm bringing his energy to the jam-packed bumper schedule on Saturday nights on ITV. With his comedic brilliance and captivating style, I can’t wait to see what he has up his sleeve.”
