Hypothetical, the comedy panel show fronted by comedians Josh Widdicombe and James Acaster, will not be returning for a fifth series on Dave.

The UKTV Original programme follows top comedians as they are posed absurd hypothetical situations and scored on how well they would deal with them. Over five rounds, two teams of comedians must think fast as they are faced with a series of completely made-up scenarios and interrogated on their approach to each one.

A Dave spokesperson said: "We are proud to have brought four series of Hypothetical to Dave but can confirm it is not returning for another series. It was hugely enjoyable working with James and Josh, and the team at Hat Trick to bring this panel show to life for the last few years...

They continued: "Hypothetical provided us with an opportunity to work with the biggest names in comedy, offer a platform for up and coming talent and create a hit podcast spinoff and we look forward to finding new opportunities to work with the team in the future."

Previous series of Hypothetical is available now on UKTV Play.
