What the Duck Season 3 and What the Duck Googlies return on Viu

With cricket fever gripping the nation this season, premium video-on-demand service Viu is back with its marquee cricket-gone-crazy property ‘What the Duck’. For the past 2 seasons, the property has received rave reviews and gained a large following amongst both men and women. The platform announced the launch of its hat trick season, promising to bring back the madness and fun for all cricket enthusiasts.

This third season will see Vikram Sathaye host 20 legendary cricketers on the show spanning 10 episodes. On each 15-minute episode, two cricketers will be seen together, engaging in a playful banter with Vikram Sathaye. The cricket duos on the show are Shikhar Dhawan and Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Michael Clarke and Brad Hogg, Mohammad Kaif and Harbhajan Singh, AB Devilliers and Jonty Rhodes, Ravichandran Ashwin and KL Rahul, Rohit Sharma and Ajinkya Rahane and many more, to share fun moments and interesting trivia on and off the field.

Viu will also release unique short form comedy content on cricket titled ‘What The Duck Googlies’. The show will revolve around four popular stand-up comedians - Vikram Sathaye, Anirban Dasgupta, Saurav Mehta, and Sidharth Dudeja giving their comic spin on all the current and trending topics in cricket. The 35-episode show will be live on both Viu and YouTube starting 27th May.

Commenting on the launch of What The Duck 3, Vishal Maheshwari, Country Head - Viu, India said, “Cricket and comedy are two things that connect most Indians. Riding on the success of the first two seasons, we have decided to double the madness and triple the fun with season 3. We are also happy to partner with YouTube, who will help us increase the reach of our popular show to a larger audience”.

The digital premium show can be streamed exclusively on www.viu.com, the Viu App and Viu’s YouTube channel. And for regular updates and show announcements, you can follow Viu on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
