Louis Theroux’s ‘When Louis Met…’ series could be returning

But who could feature in the revived doc?

Louis Theroux‘s early-’00s series When Louis Met… could be returning to our screens, the documentary maker has revealed.

The BBC 2 show aired for two seasons from 2000-2002, delving into the lives of various famous figures. Chris Eubank, Neil and Christine Hamilton, Max Clifford, Paul Daniels and his wife Debbie McGee, and more were all featured.

In a recent interview with Radio Times, Theroux said that he has considered returning to the series.


Quizzed on who he would like to appear in the documentaries, he cited Nigel Farage and WikiLeaks’ Julian Assange as potential subjects.

“Tommy Robinson is too much on the front burner for me right now. I’m more interested in stories about people who maybe are not riding as high as they once were — maybe Nigel Farage or Julian Assange,” Theroux said.

“Farage seems to be more in the wings, more in the margins.”

Roseanne Barr – who was axed from her ABC sitcom due to racist tweet – was also named by the filmmaker as a figure of interest. Theroux explained that she “would be a good person to make a documentary about” as he leans towards people that “have been somehow defrocked, or have fallen from grace”.


Theroux’s latest TV project Altered States began earlier this month. It follows on from his previous show, Dark States, which aired last year.

The 2017 three-parter saw Theroux “visit three American cities and examine a uniquely devastating human crisis in each – heroin addiction, sex trafficking and murder.”
