Taskmaster returns for Season 9 this September, Dave has confirmed.
Greg Davies will once again place himself in the Taskmaster throne for a glorious ninth reign over a bunch of hopeful contenders – accopmanied by Little Alex Horne, his ever-popular personal secretary.
The five fresh and funny comics anxiously hoping that their attempts at task completion will gain favour are David Baddiel, Ed Gamble, Jo Brand, Katy Wix and Rose Matafeo. This quintet of creative contestants will face a vast array of simple yet complicated tasks that they must try to perform competently and without making themselves look foolish.
Alex Horne will, as usual, lurk creepily in the background of all the task attempts, clutching his tablet and making furtive notes, while the comics try to make sense of challenges ranging from secreting shiny vegetables, to bringing a classic board game to life, to performing a sensational self-serenade. And, after 10 episodes, one of the five will be given full rein to celebrate with the replica of Greg’s head as they exult in the grandeur of becoming a Taskmaster Champion.
Season 9 will premiere at 9pm on Wednesday 4th September. Never seen the show? Read why you should be watching Taskmaster.
