After some speculation last week following comments on their Wednesday night show, The Chaser’s War on Everything team has confirmed the end of the show.
During the week the picture was somewhat unclear. A spokesperson had told TV Tonight they could only confirm the end of the current series, on July 29th.
But yesterday the Herald Sun confirmed the War brand would end, the second ABC show to announce its closure in as many days.
Following their ‘Make-a-Realistic-Wish’ sketch the show was suspended for two weeks. The ABC also truncated their episode order by a further two weeks.
The Chaser team will instead focus on new projects. Executive producer Julian Morrow said he was “interested in doing different sorts of stuff” including a possible narrative comedy.
Earlier this year we saw another of their productions, Lawrence Leung’s Choose Your Own Adventure.
Chris Taylor will also present Australia’s Heritage: National Treasures: Eureka Flag on August 6th on ABC1.
