HUNTED: CHANNEL 4 DELAYS RECOMMISSION AFTER KEEPING SERIES ON THE SHELF

Channel 4 has delayed recommissioning Hunted, with no new series being filmed last year. Broadcast reports decisions on further series will be made after its upcoming celebrity series.



The most recent series of Hunted, which concluded last month on Channel 4, was filmed in Summer 2022 and kept on the shelf since. A celebrity series, with famous famous including Denise Welch, Giovanni Pernice, Duncan James and Danielle Harold, was recorded last year and no air date has been provided by Channel 4.



Broadcast reports that the delay in recommissioning the series, which means no series will record this year, is due to Channel 4 keeping the show on the shelf for so long and commissioning cycles falling out-of-sync with transmission.


A Channel 4 spokesperson told Broadcast: "We continue to have conversations with [producers] Shine."


Hunted sees 12 ordinary people from all over the UK have turned fugitive. If they can successfully outrun the elite team of hunters for 21 days, they will win a share of £100,000.



On the run across the length and breadth of the UK, these fugitives will be looking over their shoulders, ever fearful that the hunters have picked up their trail.


The Hunters are a handpicked team of top police and military personnel, armed with the powers of the state, which includes live CCTV, ANPR, GPS positioning, drones, tracker dogs, mobile phone monitoring, publicity campaigns and motorbikes.


Hunted is available on Channel 4.
