When will The Apprentice be back?

As for when The Apprentice will return with its main series, there’s no word yet.

A statement from the show’s producers said previously: “Sadly we have decided to postpone The Apprentice for 2020.

“Production safety and the wellbeing of everyone involved in the show is our number one priority.”

With filming yet to start, it’s likely that the show will take a whole year off and not return until autumn 2021.

Lord Sugar previously revealed on Twitter: “The BBC has a selection of candidates ready to go from the last recruitment process in March. They will be called on once we have the green sign to start filming @bbcapprentice.”

With The Apprentice not making it to screens this year it’s the first time since 2005 without a series airing.
