“RTL Saturday Night” returns to German television! The private broadcaster announced the comeback of the 90s cult show.

The retro trend on TV is also continuing at Germany’s largest private broadcaster: RTL announced as part of Screenforce Days 2022 that it would be relaunching the cult comedy show “RTL Saturday Night”. The show originally aired from 1993 to 1998.

The comedy show produced by Hugo Egon Balder (72) blossomed into an absolute cult format. A total of 146 episodes were produced and broadcast. The actors Wigald Boning, Esther Schweins, Olli Dittrich, Stefan Jürgens, Tanja Schumann and Mirco Nontschew developed into megastars of the early German comedy scene. Regular skits like “Kentucky screams fuck”, “Two Chairs – One Opinion” or “News from Spocht” became classics in TV history. Ulla Kock am Brink (60) is also returning with her former hit show “The 100,000 Mark Show”, as previously announced.

In addition to these comebacks, new entertainment ideas will also be implemented by the broadcasters in the near future with “The RTL water games”, “The German Air Balloon Championship” or the betting show “I’m setting you up”. The controversial TV event format “The Passion” will also be served a new edition for Easter 2023.

The cult entertainers Thomas Gottschalk (72) and Mike Krüger (70) will also revive the 80s in the big show event “40 Years of Supernasen” in the upcoming TV season. The casting show “Die Puppenstars”, which was broadcast in seven episodes in 2017 and 2018, is also experiencing a resurrection. In the fiction segment, the broadcaster continues to rely on its RTL+ originals. The second season “Sisi” and the Hape Kerkeling series “Club las Piranjas” are among the highlights on free TV on RTL.
