The program Matthijs Continues will actually take place on Saturday evening. The program was scheduled to start earlier, but presenter Matthijs van Nieuwkerk became infected with the corona virus. He has now been declared cured, his broadcaster reports BNNVARA.
The broadcaster previously announced that the presenter with mild corona symptoms was in home quarantine. And that he and the editors were working from home at the time. The hope was to be able to make a broadcast again soon and they succeeded.
Matthijs van Nieuwkerk two weeks later
The first episode of the program can be seen next Saturday at 9.40 pm on NPO 1. The show, which already had a kind of pre-kick-off on New Year’s Eve, would actually start on January 9. But corona threw a spanner in the works. To the spot of Matthijs Turns Door new episodes of the KRO-NCRVs were replaced New Farmers. The hope was to start the program last Saturday, but that did not work. Matthijs van Nieuwkerk still had health problems.
Unfortunately for the fans: Matthijs Gaat Door will also be canceled tomorrow night, BnnVara reports. Matthijs still has mild complaints. Get well soon!

A result of De Wereld Draait Door
The presenter of The world goes on (DWDD), when that program ended after 15 years last year, got permission from his broadcaster to set up its own Saturday night show. More than a million people watched the pilot episode, on New Year’s Eve. Matthijs van Nieuwkerk’s new show is a result of The world goes on, but in the form of a Saturday night show and with a fixed big band.
