8 Out Of 10 Cats get another nine lives

...well, episodes. Plus more Countdown specials

Channel 4 has commissioned another series of 8 Out Of 10 Cats, plus new episodes of their Countdown specials.

Host Jimmy Carr and team captains Jon Richardson and Sean Lock will return for the 17th series, comprising nine episodes and two compilations, in 2014. A further six new episodes of 8 Out Of 10 Cats Does Countdown have also been ordered.

Channel 4 commissioning editor Syeda Irtizaali said: 'Series 17 really is testament to the talent, on screen and off, of the Cats team. And like all teenagers am sure this series will be as cheeky, fresh and irreverent as always.'

And her colleague Madeleine Knight added: '8 Out of 10 Cats Does Countdown has grown into a very funny format in its own right and a brilliant comedy vehicle for Sean, Jon, Jimmy and Joe Wilkinson.'
