ITV have quashed reports that The Jonathan Ross Show has been quietly cancelled, revealing instead that the chat show has been prospectively renewed for another (albeit delayed) series.
Presenter Jonathan Ross will take an extended hiatus after this fall/autumn’s 11th series, before returning for Series 12 in fall/autumn 2017, a spokesperson confirmed:
“Jonathan is extending his hiatus into the early part of next year to travel to the US. The chat show will return in the autumn of 2017.”
ITV Director of Television Kevin Lygo added:
“Jonathan Ross is very important to ITV and we look forward to the new series this autumn and the Christmas special and working with him again next year when the chat show returns in Autumn 2017.”
Will ITV hold firm on The Jonathan Ross Show Series 12 renewal? Stay tuned…
