Spitting Image will return to television as ‘public service satire’, its co-creator has confirmed.
New episodes of the comedy, described as “public service satire” by co-creator Roger Law, will take on Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin, among many others.
“It’s pretty chaotic out there. As far as I’m concerned, it’s better than shouting at the television set,”.
A pilot for the resurrected show has already been filmed, Mr Law added.
The pilot will also feature the Duchess of Sussex wearing a glittery top with the word “Princess” printed on the front.
Unlike its 1980s heyday, Mr Law said the new series would not focus on the lower ranks of British politics, explaining: “It’s an awful lot of trouble to go to, and you want it to be effective.”
He told the paper the show’s producers are in talks with US-based networks about bringing the show to a wider global audience.
Caricaturist Adrian Teal said he has been working on the show’s puppet designs to bring the “TV satire juggernaut” back to screens, tweeting: “Well, its official!”
