The Graham Norton Show is returning to BBC One next month

Graham Norton Show returning

The Irish actor-comedian is all set to come back for UK’s top talk show The Graham Norton Show. With twenty-seven seasons already behind, the show is still going pretty strong. This is mostly because of Graham Norton’s hospitality and his innate quality to bring out a funny banter among his guest. Though, the availability of alcohol does act as a catalyst in the process.


To everyone’s delight, the show is returning on BBC next month.


For The Graham Norton Show Season 27 that aired in April 2020(during the lockdown), the makers had to shot the episodes via video-conferencing, with Graham indulging in conversation with his guests from the comfort of his home. Due to this change in shooting, the show timings and also the time span had to be changed.

The Graham Norton Show’s different format

Like many shows, Graham Norton’s talk show has picked up a different format to keep shooting and maintaining social distancing in the coronavirus infected world.

The conspicuous red couch of the talk show is now being replaced with individual red chairs for the guests. As for the live audience, the show will have a live audience but it will include limited members seated separately according to the safety norms.

The Graham Norton Show Season 28 premiere episode will air on Friday, October 2nd on BBC One. The show will be returning on its original timings of 10:45.
