Rumor Control: ITV Looks to Bring Back “Catchphrase”
Revivals of classic, favorite formats seem to be pretty popular in England right now, especially with Challenge’s Blockbusters doing very well. Metro is reporting that ITV is looking at bringing another favorite back to the screen. It’s being reported that ITV is in talks to revive Catchphrase, which hasn’t seen new episodes since 2002, with the format’s owner DRG. The show, which asks viewers to identify picture puzzles, is seen daily on Challenge. ITV has shown interest in reviving past formats previously. Late last year they shot a pilot for Play Your Cards Right (Card Sharks) with host Vernon Kay but ultimately passed on it.
Would you be interested in seeing the show return? Let us know below. In the meantime, if you haven’t seen the show in a while, here’s a clip from Catchphrase. No, it’s not that clip.
