We hope you're sitting down, because we've got some pretty upsetting news for '80s and '90s TV viewers.

'The Den' revival won't be back for a second season. Co-hosts Zig and Zag broke the news on Twitter late last night to their followers, which has caused quite a reaction online.

The popular children's programme, which originally ran from 1986 until 2010 and was hosted by five different Irish presenters, received a revival late last year with Ray D'Arcy returning to the series.

Just the tonic for a year that we won't be forgetting in a hurry, 'The Den' revival proved to be the perfect Sunday evening show for families across the country with its feel-good nature, cracking jokes, surprising special guests, and hilarious pre-recorded sketches. Hell, even Podge managed to make a Christmas appearance.

Zig and Zag, from the planet Zog, posted the news on Twitter. The reason for it not returning was a call from RTÉ bosses: "Well, sad news to report today. We found out from the bosses that #TheDen won't be coming back after all! Thankz to all the old fans and the new ones for tuning in! We had a blast!"

Unsurprisingly, the news of 'The Den' not getting a second season hasn't gone down too well with people on social media. Some have branded RTÉ's decision as a "shockingly bad call", while another said it was "ridiculous".
