Taskmaster series 13 rumoured release date: Will the gameshow be returning?

The series 12 finale is over and the series 13 line-up has been announced – but when will Greg and Alex be back?

Taskmaster Series 11

The final episode of Taskmaster‘s 12th series aired tonight, with Greg Davies and Alex Horne crowning the show’s latest winner from its line-up of hilarious comedians.


Over the last 10 weeks, we’ve seen Morgana Robinson, Guz Khan, Desiree Burch, Alan Davies and Victoria Coren Mitchell face the most ridiculous challenges, whether they’ve been building sand bridges, spreading jam on toast in a really cool way or trying to pop the most balloons.

While fans may be fretting over when we’ll next be heading to the Taskmaster house, we have all the latest information on when the Channel 4 show will be returning to our screens plus the confirmed series 13 cast.

So read on for all everything you need to know about Taskmaster series 13.

Taskmaster series 13 rumoured release date

The good news is that Taskmaster is definitely returning for another series, as Channel 4 commissioned the show for six series back in 2019.

However, the broadcaster is yet to confirm exactly when Greg and Alex will be back to put another line-up of celebrities through ridiculous tasks.

Looking back at the past few series, there has been a three or four-month break between each run and so we’d expect series 13 to arrive on our screens in March 2022 at the earliest.
