Frankie Boyle’s New World Order returns for a third season to BBC 2!

After the success of the previous two series, series 3 is set to be the most explosive and hilarious yet.

Expect brilliant comedian guest stars and Frankie on his most outrageously funny form.

Here’s what you need to know about the new series before it airs.

Frankie Boyle performs onstage at Wembley Arena on March 6, 2013.

What is Frankie Boyle’s New World Order about?

Throughout the show, Frankie and an array of comedians and celebrity guests dissect the news of the week.

They attempt to make sense of the world through stand-up, which as we all know, is more fun than it is reassuring!

Who is on the show?

Frankie Boyle will be the lead presenter but he will be joined – as in the previous two series – by Sara Pascoe each episode as the regular comedic panellist.

Katherine Ryan used to join Sara as the second regular panellist but has since parted ways from the show.

We know that comedian Lucy Prebble and Pointless’s Richard Osman will join Sara as panellists in the first two episodes.

When is the new series starting?

The brand new series kicks off on Friday, March 29th at 10 pm on BBC 2.

There will be 7 x 30-minute episodes in total for series 3.

Each episode will be available exclusively on BBC iPlayer after it is broadcast.

Episode 2 will shift to a different date of Thursday, April 4th – still at 10 pm – but then it will be back to Frankie’s regular Friday evening slot.
