'The Graham Norton Show' to Return with Social Distancing Measures in Place

The Graham Norton Show will return to its regular studio setting next month for a brand new season – albeit with social distancing measures in place.

Some guests will join Norton in the studio, but they'll be seated on individual red chairs safely spaced out instead of the usual big red sofa. Other guests will appear virtually over Zoom.

Norton will also welcome a smaller studio audience than normal in order to ensure social distancing measures are adhered to at all times. Longtime fans will be glad to know, though, that Norton's in(famous) big red chair will be making its return for the new season, too.

The Graham Norton Show will make it's return to BBC America this fall. Actor Rupert Everett, comedians Lolly Adefope, and Sara Pascoe, plus musical guest Róisín Murphy will all join Norton in the studio.

Country legend Dolly Parton and actor Riz Ahmed (The Night Of) will also appear over Zoom.

The previous season of The Graham Norton Show included an array of virtual interviews with the likes of Sandra Oh, Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Jeff Goldblum, and Lady Gaga. You can watch individual episodes here.
