Taskmaster series 9 release date, contestants and more

Taskmaster series eight may be over, but there’s not long to wait until its return. Series nine will be back on Dave in September, it’s been confirmed, and understandably, we’re excited.

The new contestant line-up was trailed at the end of the series eight finale, and it’s another robust mix with some big names in there. Vying for the Taskmaster’s points this time around will be: Jo Brand, David Baddiel, Katy Wix, Ed Gamble and Rose Matafeo.

Matafeo is a stand-up and writer who won the Edinburgh Comedy Award 2018, Gamble is a comedian and part of the Off Menu podcast team, Katy Wix is a familiar face from loads of ace comedies, most recently BBC Two’s Ghosts, and David Baddiel and Jo Brand need no introduction to comedy fans. It’s David Baddiel and Jo Brand, people.

Five comedians, ten episodes, hundreds of points and roughly a billion laughs, all coming our way this autumn.

In other news, joining the official Taskmaster book released last year will be a Taskmaster boardgame. Following that, we’re hoping for an officially branded lunch box and thermos, and protractor set with optional rubber.
