ITV orders more The Cube

ITV has ordered an additional two seasons of game-show The Cube.

The Saturday evening series is fronted by Phillip Schofield and has proved to be a popular part of ITV’s line-up. The series was originally offered to Channel Four who, after producing a pilot, decided not to peruse the project. ITV however were quick to pick The Cube up and have, so far, aired four seasons.

Broadcast reports that ITV has now ordered two more seasons plus several more celebrity specials – a standard practice for most shows now it seems. In all 15 new episodes will be produced for ITV.
