Louis Theroux will return to BBC with a brand-new four-part series looking back at some of his best work.

BBC Two has announced that Louis Theroux will return to TV screens very soon with a brand-new four-part series. Called Louis Theroux: Life on the Edge, the series will dive headfirst into 25 years' worth of past work - a must-watch for Theroux fans.

Looking back at some of the moments that affected him most, the series will feature over 60 hours of footage along with new interviews with Theroux and other former contributors.

Speaking of the project, Theroux said:

"For years I've wanted to go back and make sense of the programmes I've made, find out what happened to some of the contributors, update their stories, and see what all these many hours of making TV might add up to.

Lockdown gave me the time and space to do this. It's been a strange and fascinating couple of months working on this, and especially fun to dig through old episodes of Weird Weekends - programmes I made in the mid-nineties, when the world was a very different place.

I'm really proud of what we've been able to do with this new series. I think we've been able to make the whole add up to more than the sum of the parts and to bring out surprising themes and commonalities. And, if nothing else, it was an interesting review of how my haircuts and glasses have changed over the years."

No release date has been announced as of yet but we're absolutely buzzing for this.
