4 things you need to know about the new Zig and Zag TV show

The lads from the Kaiser Chiefs do the theme song ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

ZIG AND ZAG are coming back to our screens – and we got the first glimpse of the pair in action today when the theme tune for their new show was released.

Here’s what we know so far:

1. The two lads from The Kaiser Chiefs sing the intro

Lead singer Ricky Wilson and bassist Simon Rix have recorded the song, and it’s a bit of a tune to be fair.

3. They have the same voices though, so there’s no need to panic

Zig and Zag might be animated now, but the new show will have the creators and original voices of Ciarán Morrison and Mick O’Hara behind the aliens.

4. We now know for certain that they will return to earth in Spring 2016

Yes, the 26 episodes will return next Spring and people are getting excited.

They’re predominately aimed at the six to nine year olds, so we probably won’t see the Big Breakfast-style antics happening. But everyone is glad to have them back  -and we’ll always have this tune:
