ITV Recommissions Harry Hill’s Alien Fun Capsule


ITV has ordered a second season of the comedy panel show Harry Hill’s Alien Fun Capsule.

The sophomore season will air on ITV next year. On the show, Hill presides over two teams that are tasked with saving the planet from alien invasion. Guests in the first season included Kathy Burke, Joe Lycett, Lorraine Kelly, Josh Widdicombe, Nish Kumar, Des O’Connor and Raleigh Ritchie.

Harry Hill’s Alien Fun Capsule was commissioned by Saskia Schuster, ITV’s comedy commissioning editor, and Peter Davey, the head of comedy entertainment. The show is produced by Nit Television, the joint venture between Harry Hill and CPL Productions, with Mob Dar, Murray Boland, Danielle Lux and Hill serving as executive producers.

Hill said, “I’m thrilled to hear it’s coming back! It was a lot of fun to make and judging by the fact that no aliens have invaded this year, it’s clearly working.”

Schuster noted, “We’re really looking forward to finding out what Harry has in store in the next series to save Earth from an alien invasion. It can only get sillier.”

Dar added, “Harry and the team are over the moon ITV want more Alien Fun Capsule. We’ve checked his availability, and crucially, it’s a thumbs up from Alan the Alien, too!”
