'The Den' is officially set to return to Irish TV over three decades since its first broadcast.

The news that 'The Den' is coming back was made on the Ray D'Arcy's radio show today.

The radio and TV personality confirmed the news on Twitter.


The series has a date for its return too - it will be on the first Sunday in November (the 8th) at 6.30pm on RTÉ One.

D’Arcy hosted the show for eight years between 1990 and 1998.

At the time it featured beloved puppets of the nation, Zig and Zag, Socky the Sock Monster and Dustin the Turkey.

It first aired in 1986 with Ian Demspey presenting it until 1990.

The show was cancelled in 2010 after airing for 24 years.

Reportedly it will air every Sunday with favourites Dustin as well as Zig and Zag set to return.

It will broadcast right up until the last Sunday before Christmas.

The comeback follows the success of 'The Den's one-off charity special for RTÉ Does Comic Relief.

Maybe Niall Horan will do another guest appearance so...
