UK media personality Piers Morgan is returning to prime-time via Fox Nation this spring with a new show called “Uncensored” that will seek to “cancel the cancel culture” with some people stating they are thrilled he’s back while others, not so much.

Morgan has never been one to give a fig about his critics. He will be back this spring with his new show and, in spite of those who profess their dislike of the veteran broadcaster, his ratings are likely to be very high.

“A year ago today I was forced to leave a job that I loved at the peak of its success for having the audacity to express an honestly-held opinion,” Morgan said in a Twitter promo. “Well, this shouldn’t happen in any democracy supposedly built on the principle of free speech and freedom of expression.”

“So I’m delighted to now be returning to live television with a new prime-time show whose main purpose will be to cancel the cancel culture which has infected societies around the world. I want it to be a platform for lively, vigorous debate with news-making interviews and that increasingly taboo three-letter word: fun. I also want it to annoy all the right people. I’m Piers Morgan, Uncensored,” he proclaimed.

Morgan quit ITV’s “Good Morning Britain” last year following an argument with his coworkers concerning his comments about actress Meghan Markle and her Oprah Winfrey interview.

“I don’t believe a word she says,” Morgan said at the time. “I wouldn’t believe her if she read me a weather report.”

“I understand that you don’t like Meghan Markle,” co-presenter Alex Beresford commented. “You’ve made that so clear a number of times on this program — a number of times — and I understand that you’ve got a personal relationship with Meghan Markle, or had one and she cut you off. She’s entitled to cut you off if she wants to. Has she said anything about you since she cut you off? I don’t think she has, but yet you continue to trash her.”

“OK, I’m done with this,” Morgan stated as he stormed off-set. “Sorry. No. Sorry. You can trash me, mate, but not on my own show.”

An investigation was launched following Morgan’s comments after he received over 41,000 complaints. He was later cleared of any wrongdoing but the damage was done.

One fan simply commented via Twitter upon learning of his return, “The legend returns.”

Another was very excited at the prospect of his return, “This sounds great piers can’t wait to watch!!!”

However, there were many who made it clear they still remember his departure, “Forced to leave? It’s on camera that he threw a strop and cancelled himself.”

And one detractor spelled it out bluntly, “You weren’t forced out. You walked out. It’s right there on the iPad you just watched it. We all watched it. Not because of freedom of expression, it was because you didn’t like someone elses comments and chose to walk off.”

“Piers Morgan Uncensored” will be produced and filmed at News U.K.’s studios in London Bridge. Winnie Dunbar Nelson, who worked with Piers Morgan at CNN and “Good Morning Britain” as well, will be his executive producer according to Fox News.

Morgan’s impressive deal was struck with Fox News Media and News Corp for a TV show, written columns, and a book that was announced last fall.

“Piers is the broadcaster every channel wants but is too afraid to hire,” News Corp chief executive Rupert Murdoch commented after snagging Morgan.

Morgan will be extremely busy. He’s not only doing a show but writing two columns a week for the New York Post and a sequel to his bestselling book, “Wake Up,” for HarperCollins. He will also narrate a series of true crime documentaries.

“Piers is a brilliant presenter, a talented journalist, and says what people are thinking and feeling,” Murdoch asserted. “He has many passionate fans around the world and we look forward to expanding his audience in the UK, at Fox Nation, Sky News Australia, The Sun, and the New York Post.”

“Piers is an exceptional talent,” Fox News Media CEO Suzanne Scott commented. “We look forward to him making an impact and exploring opportunities with him on all of our platforms, especially Fox Nation, where our subscribers will love his new show tackling the subjects everyone is talking about.”

“Rupert Murdoch has been a constant and fearless champion of free speech and we are going to be building something new and very exciting together,” Morgan declared in a statement.

“I want my global show to be a fearless forum for lively debate and agenda-setting interviews, and a place that celebrates the right of everyone to have an opinion, and for those opinions to be vigorously examined and challenged,” he said.

Citizens in the UK will be able to access the show on TalkTV, live or on-demand, via their television or a personal device. In the US, the 60-minute show will stream on Fox Nation and it can also be watched on Sky News in Australia.
