When is the new The Chase series on TV?

New episodes of The Chase will be starting on TV soon, ITV has revealed.


The hit game show, hosted by Bradley Walsh, typically airs weekdays at 5PM on ITV.

Repeat episodes have been airing over the summer but now a brand new series is on the way.

The Chase will return with new episodes from Tuesday, September 1 on ITV in its usual 5PM time slot.

Earlier in 2020 The Chase was renewed for two more years and 500 new episodes by ITV.

As part of the new series, it’s rumoured the show will welcome a new Chaser.

ITV is reportedly set to announce Darragh Ennis as its latest Chaser, becoming the first new addition since Jenny in 2015.


The post doctoral researcher from the University of Oxford previously appeared on the show in March 2017, banking £9,000.

Alongside Jenny, he’d join current Chasers Shaun Wallace (The Barrister), Mark Labbett (The Beast), Paul Sinha (The Sinnerman) and Anne Hegerty (The Governess).

Meanwhile, applications to take part in The Chase are currently open.

ITV say: “As a contestant on the show you must answer general knowledge questions and play your tactics right in order to get yourself into the Final Chase, where you could win a cash pot worth thousands of pounds.

“However, standing in your way is the common enemy, the Chaser, hunting you down every step of the way.


“How will you fare against our famous five, can you beat them and go home with an equal share of the money or will the Chasers reign supreme?”
