Easily the most comforting show of the pandemic, Grayson Perry’s Art Club will be returning for a third series on Channel 4.

Following the Grayson and his wife, best-selling author Phillipa Perry, Art Club invites the public into the artist’s studio, and gives undiscovered artists the chance to share their own artwork to millions.

Grayson is also joined by celebrity guests who showcase their creations, previously featuring the likes of Derren Brown, Johnny Vegas and Boy George.

During lockdown, Art Club became a giant hug through the telly for those who needed it most.

The next six-episode run will see Grayson incorporate weekly themes for members of the public to submit artwork to. Themes and submission information will be made available in early 2022.

On the return of the series, Grayson and Philippa Perry said: ‘We’re delighted that we’re opening up the doors to our Art Club again.

‘This show was borne out of a time where we needed art to help us make sense of the changes in our lives and find meaning from what we were collectively going through.

‘In series three we’re working on a new set of themes to inspire the nation to make more art to illuminate what we now face, whatever that is, and we’re both very much looking forward to seeing what the British public will create this time around.’

Shaminder Nahal, Commissioning Editor added: ‘Grayson’s Art Club has brilliantly demonstrated how much art means to so many people, and its power to bring us together and help us in difficult times.

‘We are so grateful for the thousands of incredible submissions we’ve received from talented artists across the UK.

‘Here’s to another run and seeing how Grayson, Philippa and the team at Swan Films are able to develop the series and uncover a whole new set of powerful real-life stories.’
