The BBC Four format aired for five series, after which two runs of Newswipe and a one-off Gameswipe were made and he hasn’t committed to a full series since 2010.
Yet when speaking to The Guardian at the Edinburgh Festival, Brooker explained that he could return with a slightly different version of his hit satire show, possibly with broader specials such as ‘2011 Wipe’.
“The Wipe franchise is going to return in a slightly new form – beyond news, beyond screen, beyond games,” he confirmed.
“I think it’ll be a kind of omni-wipe,” the star further teased. “It’s like an Emperor Dalek, it combines all the best and all the worst of all the different Wipes we’ve done, hopefully all in one.”
