The show is filmed at The London Studios, except for one episode in 2013 which was filmed at BBC Television Centre. In November 2011, it was announced that Ross had signed a new two-year contract to host another two series of 10 episodes and a Christmas special. A year later, the show was later renewed for a fourth series to air in 2013. In March 2013, Ross bemoaned his declining ratings due to a poor selection of guests, as some top celebrities seemed to prefer the atmosphere of The Graham Norton Show. He also confirmed that series 4 had been extended and that he had signed to present one more series of 30 episodes. In July 2013, despite previous announcements that the show would end in late 2013, ITV commissioned two more series to air in 2014.

In May 2014, Ross stated that, as of the seventh series, the show would be given a "shake-up" to its format to keep it fresh. On 20 October 2014, ITV announced that Ross had signed a new contract to continue his show until the end of 2015, consisting of two series and a Christmas special. ITV's Director of Entertainment and Comedy, Elaine Bedell said: "Jonathan is the king of talk shows and a valued member of the ITV family. He continues to attract the biggest names in showbiz onto his sofa and I am delighted that he will remain on the channel until at least the end of 2015."

After much rumour and speculation over the future of the show, ITV and representatives for Jonathan Ross have confirmed that the show has not been axed and will return for its 11th series in the autumn of 2016, which will also include a Christmas special. However unlike previous series there will be no new episodes continuing into the new year of 2017, with Jonathan taking a break to travel to the US. The show will return in the autumn of 2017 for its 12th series. ITV's Director of Television, Kevin Lygo said, "Jonathan Ross is very important to ITV and we look forward to the new series this autumn and the Christmas special and working with him again next year when the chat show returns in Autumn 2017".


The Jonathan Ross Show has broadcast eleven series since its debut in 2011. Series 11 premiered on 10 September 2016.
