Matthijs van Nieuwkerk will be back from August with his Saturday evening show Matthijs continues. The presenter announced on Saturday evening in the last broadcast of the first series that he has received the green light for a second season.
Matthijs continues, a result of The world goes on, was on TV for the first time at the end of January. Van Nieuwkerk, who already gave a foretaste of his new program on New Year’s Eve, would have liked to start earlier. But due to a corona infection, he had to postpone the premiere of his Saturday night show for two weeks.
The first season of Matthijs continues, in which music plays a major role and has a prominent role for the Sven Hammond Big Band, generally attracted more than a million viewers.
Saturday night’s episode featured a large number of Edison Pop winners. Willeke Alberti closed the broadcast with the song Eternally young, that she sang for Rob de Nijs. This year De Nijs got his sixth Edison, this time in the Dutch-language category for his farewell album ‘t Is Mooi.
