Steven Moffat's new cancel culture series, Douglas Is Cancelled, has finally confirmed its release date - and those waiting in anticipation won't have to do so for much longer.


The drama-comedy series, which stars Hugh Bonneville and Karen Gillan, will air on Thursday 27th June at 9pm on ITV1 and ITVX.

The trailer for the series was recently released, in which we meet Bonneville as the titular character and Gillan's Madeleine.

However, things take a turn for Douglas when he is overheard making a sexist joke at a wedding and someone posts it online.

Alongside Bonneville and Gillan, Ben Miles (The Crown), Alex Kingston (Doctor Who), Nick Mohammed (Ted Lasso) and Simon Russell Beale (House of the Dragon) all star.

Moffatt previously revealed that viewers won't know what Douglas actually said until the end of the series, allowing them to make up their own minds on whether he should have been cancelled or not.

"It's a heated topic, and isn't it funny that everyone has exactly the same opinion, really? Everybody wants to cancel somebody."

Douglas Is Cancelled will air on ITV1 and ITVX on Thursday 27th June 2024.
