In this article, we will be talking about the release date of Spitting Image. Spitting Image is mainly a British television puppet show. The series made its debut on February 15, 1984, and gradually became famous. With several nominations, it managed to grab two Emmys and ten BAFTA Television Awards. Millions of people watched it, and collaboration with musicians of the likes of Sting and Phil Collins placed it on the chart of the mainstream media.
The show is mainly about representing famous people with the help of puppets. From British prime minister Margaret Thatcher to US president Ronald Reagan to the British royal family, the show included everyone. Sadly the show got canceled in 1996. All the script, drawings, and recordings were given to Cambridge University. The series consisted of 6 seasons. Every show has actors, but Spitting Image was slightly different from other shows as it used puppets. The Chicken song became so famous that it hit number 1 in the UK singles charts for three weeks.
Spitting Image was canceled in 1996 because the viewership was too low. Ever since that happened, there has not been much information about the show’s comeback. An announcement came in September 2019 that the show is returning with a new series, but we didn’t receive any official date. Because of its out-of-the-box nature, many industries rejected the series as they thought it would only be suitable for children. Later the show proved everyone and developed itself to be seen by adults too.
When is the Spitting Image release date? Who is in the Cast?
The new series of Spitting Image will premiere on October 3, 2020. You can watch it on BritBox every Sunday.
The new trailer shows that not only political figures like Donald Trump are present but also famous singer Billie Eilish is also represented using a puppet in the show. In an interview with the show’s original co-creator, Roger Law mentioned that ‘people have spoken, and the puppets are oven-ready.’ The program makers will introduce latex characters to sell for the show, the viewers, and international audiences.
The series is updating itself from its old version to the new. The very fact that the show will receive several new puppets shows how much it will evolve. Fans will get to see the faces of some of the most famous celebrities of the modern generation. Billy West, Debra Stephenson, Debra Wilson, Guz Khan, Indira Varma, Jess Robinson, John DiMaggio, Lewis MacLeod, Lobo Chan, Matt Forde, and Phil LaMarr are some of the voice actors that you will see on the show. There will be a total of ten episodes in the series, with each episode releasing every Sunday.
According to Roger Law, the upcoming series will be ‘more outrageous, audacious and salacious than the previous incarnation.’ So to brief it all, the show is coming with all new puppets and more entertainment for us.
We cannot wait to watch the show and laugh at their jokes. Greta Thunberg is the show’s weather girl, and there will be some tongue lashings from her, as mentioned by Law. To know more updates about the show, stay tuned.
