This article has the most up-to-date info on the status of No Such Thing as the News Series 3 as we continuously monitor the news to keep you in the know. BBC Two is yet to make a decision on its future. Subscribe to our automatic updates below.
Show concept and format
No Such Thing as the News is a British comedy series with pedigree closely related to two other programs. It is a spinoff of the No Such Thing as a Fish podcast and is presented by the research team of the mega-hit television panel game show QI, known collectively as QI Elves. The show is produced by QITV and John Lloyd, who is behind QI. It has originally aired in May 2016 on BBC Two, with the second series not far behind, premiering on October 12, 2016.
The QI Elves themselves are James Harkin, Andrew Hunter Murray, Anna Ptaszynski and Dan Schreiber. In every episode each one presents the news fact of the week of their choice and discusses it in detail, adding on related facts, which are sometimes unexpected, sometimes disturbing, but always hilarious. Some of the information imparted is so strange that it inspires immediate googling.
Excellent reception and chances of renewal
The production values of the series are rather basic, which makes the show all the more charming, and only demonstrates that in some cases content prevails entirely over form. The current series has already enlightened the viewers about insane clowns, Icelandic political process, male contraceptives, snail genitals, and the reason for why the sky goes dark at night. We sincerely hope that this no-frills, mischievous show is bound for a bright future ahead as its excellent IMDb score of 8.7/10 indicates, but BBC Two has made no announcements regarding the fate of No Such Thing as the News, so please stay tuned and we will deliver the latest info to you.
