The Soup is coming back to E!
The cable channel announced the revival during Sunday night’s telecast of the People’s Choice Awards.
Jade Catta-Preta (whom you’ve heard on my podcast) will host the new iteration, debuting early next year.
“We’re excited to bring this beloved franchise back to the network, with a new take on an old favorite,” said Rod Aissa, EVP, Production and Development, Oxygen & Production, E!. “Jade’s quick wit and keen observations will provide a much-needed voice in today’s pop culture landscape delivered in a way that only The Soup can.”
Talk Soup debuted in 1991 with host Greg Kinnear (John Henson, Hal Sparks and Aisha Tyler would succeed him through the years). It took a break from 2002-2004, returning with Joel McHale as The Soup, before ending in 2015.
The Soup, 2020 edition, will be produced by Mission Control with Sue Murphy, Dwight D. Smith and Michael Agbabian as executive producers.
