Coming soon to Channel 4, Derren Brown, the acclaimed psychological illusionist, returns to Channel 4 for a thought provoking – and life transforming – special.

Following the successes of previous television specials such as Russian Roulette Live, Séance, The Heist and The Events, Derren once again creates edge-of-the-seat television as he takes ‘average Joes’ on an extraordinary psychological journey.

In a powerful transformation, which will include an amazing, must-watch live finale, Derren releases his subjects from the restraints that they have placed on themselves and allows them the opportunity to fulfil their true potential, opening the door to a new and exciting future…

I’m so looking forward to this. Looks like it’s going to be awesome!

I just am so looking forward to this! Am always intrigued and fascinated by anything new Derren has to offer whether it be on the box on or on the stage.
This looks no different, with the words ‘must-watch live finale’ particularly standing out for me here.

Can’t wait!

Man I could really do with help like this. Everything I ever want to do something ends up stopping me. This time it’s my dad emotional blackmailing me into staying with him, so I can’t do a college course

Tom Parsons says:

It is no surprise to me at all that this will be good, i’ve followed him ever since his early days from his first episode on tv and he only seems to be getting smarter.
I am looking forward to it because it starts airing on my birthday so i don’t doubt it will be good, well i hope it will make my birthday a good one!

I once watched a woman choking on a piece of steak and i paused, i want so badly to turn the clock back and be the hero i knew i could be at the time. Will Derren help me this time? Will he help all of us?

Who knows. All we know is. He fu**ing rocks.

Xmas has come early!

This is the most vague you’ve ever been Derren, and you’re starting to sound like Simon Cowell… Is that the point..? 3rd times a charm with the “Live” eh? I’ve decided you are the modern day Ali G btw. Basing this purely on your blog comments. πŸ˜‰ I am fully aware this is intentional. PS Looking forward to Wednesday. About time! πŸ˜› x

Derren looks like he’s going back to his better known atmosphere of being spooky and sinister ^-^

Will watch!

I’ll have to wait for my UK friends to record it for me πŸ™ sometimes, not living in the UK makes me kind of sad!

Rob says:

Really looking forward to it – find out what I am missing DERREN, you know what I mean?
Seriously, I wish the lucky sods all the best with their life-changing experience.
And Derren, if you read this – all the best, too, although I am sure you have planned every single last detail. It will be alright on the night!

And this is why I wish I lived in Britain. I hate being American sometimes.. I shall more than likely never get to meet Derren, but maybe it shall come to pass one day. I was able to converse with Blackstone before he passed, I kept all the letters, he is my 2nd Favorite conjurer!

Hey, if anyone gets to go to this and he does that cash in one of three boxes thingy, look at the person in front of you-if its a bloke, go for one, if its a woman, go for two, and if its a don’t know, go three. That should give you a one in three chance to wipe the smile off his face-just be sure to make good with your legs over open ground or he’ll melt your face off with his brain powers.

Hope it helps the viewers too. God knows I need help with this – had a really scary night last week when a moth fell on my face… stupid moth.

There’s many of us sitting here with the same feeling. You’re not alone. Luckliy for you it’s just your dad as many have way bigger problems. Not that I’m saying yours is small or less problematic just that I know if you can think of the worse things that could be happening you can start leaving your problems behind. This show may even contain something that can help you move on and feel better about your situation. I’m hoping it does for many.

Good luck with the project Derren. I expect this to be nothing short of spectacular. Just like Kris I wish it were me too but I guess whoever was chosen is deserving of your help.

Over n Out.

Mark says:

woops @kris again. I didn’t read and digest your comment. I guess hopefully this show will help you. If not try asking friends and family for advice and even people in forums etc. I hope he doesn’t hold you back from chasing your dreams.
