And while new Theroux is always good news, the subject matter is more deep and interesting than light and fluffy, as the documentary maker takes on a four-part retrospective called Life On The Edge, where he will look back on 25 years of exploring unique subcultures all over the world.
Louis, who has taken on subject matters from postpartum psychosis to Scientology, will be digging back through his own home archive to share never-before-seen moments from his most famous shows.

"For years I've wanted to go back and make sense of the programmes I've made, find out what happened to some of the contributors, update their stories, and see what all these many hours of making TV might add up to," he said of the new show today (Wednesday, July 22).
"Lockdown gave me the time and space to do this. It's been a strange and fascinating couple of months working on this, and especially fun to dig through old episodes of Weird Weekends – programmes I made in the mid-'90s, when the world was a very different place.
"I'm really proud of what we've been able to do with this new series. I think we've been able to make the whole add up to more than the sum of the parts and to bring out surprising themes and commonalities. And, if nothing else, it was an interesting review of how my haircuts and glasses have changed over the years."
