Bad news is that the next series will be late 2020, which is absolutely ages for a show that's usually a few months between them at most
That's no good!

Admittedly more cash probably means they don't need to work as hard. In terms of keeping the quality up, that might be no bad thing.

What it also means is that they'll insist on having the Channel 4 "in crowd", rather than the edgy little-known comic talent that Dave has brought into the limelight.

My thinking too. So, Alan Carr, Jimmy Carr, Adam Hills, that sort of crowd you think.

Just hope C4 don't fuck it up - hopefully they'll leave Avalon to carry on producing it as they have thus far. I would hope that Alex Horne (in particular) and Greg Davies would resist attempts to change the format

Johnny Vegas would suit the format, you'd think! Richard Herring can be alright. Katherine Parkinson seems to be IT Crowd woman, so who knows what she's like adlibbing.

It seems that they're not messing too much with a winning formula which is a relief, I think with the studio bits having no audience though it'll still suffer at least this season.

I don't think I've seen Mawaan Rizwan in anything and Katherine Parkinson seems to fill the 'comedic non-comedian' role they tend to have, but high hopes for the other three. This Country is one of the best shows of recent years so Daisy May Cooper should be great

Think it looks a good cast the only one I’ve not heard of Is Maween Rizwan, looking forward to it. Been watching a few on catch up tv, brilliant
