Is there a petition we can sign?

The Den won’t be returning to our TV screens in the New Year.

The popular children’s programme ran from 1986 to 2010.

It made a come-back on RTÉ last year for a six-show run during the lockdown.

Following its success, it was expected to return again in January.

But Double Z Creative, the people behind Zig and Zag, have tweeted that they found out from the bosses that The Den won’t be back after all.

They’ve thanked old and new fans for tuning in, saying they had a blast.

Fans meanwhile were quick to take to social media to blast the decision.
