What’s This TV Show About?
Airing on The CW television network in the United States, the Taskmaster TV series stars comedian Greg Davies in the title role of the all-powerful Taskmaster. In each installment, he issues simple but comedic and bizarre tasks to five regular contestants which are typically comedians. Show creator Alex Horne acts as the Taskmaster’s assistant. The tasks are usually performed in isolation but are occasionally taken on in teams. They’re designed to encourage the players to think laterally and creatively to complete the tasks. The final challenge is performed live in the studio with the episode’s winner taking home the donated items. At the end of a season, the person with the most number of points wins a golden bust of the Taskmaster.
Season One Ratings
Will The CW cancel or renew Taskmaster for season two? The series launched in the UK in 2015 and England’s Channel 4 has renewed the series through season 15. Season 10 is expected to air on Channel 4 in Fall 2020. The CW decided to air episodes from season eight so additional seasons have already been shot, should the network want to license them. Though the ratings are very low, I suspect that we may still see another season on The CW. I’ll update this page with breaking developments.
