What else is pending - an overview by dates:

9 January

This Monday, Louis Klamroth will succeed Frank Plasberg in the ARD Monday Talk Round "hard but fair". Climate activist Luisa Neubauer will no longer be a guest of the talk. Klamroth (33) said in a DWDL interview: "... it goes without saying that my partner will not be a guest on my show."

The jungle camp returns and starts on Friday (13.1., 9.30 p.m.). For the first time in three years, "I'm a star - get me out of here!" filmed again in Australia.
