Comedian and presenter Kurt Krömer has recently been in the spotlight with his show “Chez Krömer”. Because in the current season he has already interviewed some not-so-simple partners. After Austrian ex-vice chancellor Heinz-Christian Strache, who was convicted of bribery, the controversial former editor-in-chief of “Bild” Julian Reichelt recently sat down at Krömer’s table.

Both talks made waves. The interview with Reichelt caused controversy among viewers. Some accused Krömer of not getting along with Reichelt rhetorically and allowing the ousted head of “Bild” to successfully present himself as the victim of a conspiracy campaign.

Nevertheless, many fans were looking forward to Krömer’s upcoming interview with ZDF moderator and satirist Jan Böhmermann, which is less controversial but at least as eloquent as Reichelt. Böhmermann meeting Krömer’s provocative interview style – an intense exchange of blows is inevitable.

However, it has now become known that Böhmermann will not appear on “Chez Krömer” for the time being. His intended appearance in the current season has been cancelled, reports the online portal “dwdl”, which specializes in the German media environment. The station rbb, which is responsible for the show, announced Böhmermann a few weeks ago as one of the seven guests of the current season.

“Unfortunately, Jan Böhmermann cannot film and participate in season 7 as planned”, but now RBB spokeswoman said “dwdl”. The broadcaster left open on Friday whether his appearance will be replaced in a possible eighth season.

For Krömer’s show, this means that the current seventh season will not have seven episodes, but only six. The broadcaster does not plan to replace Böhmermann.

In addition to Heinz-Christian Strache and Julian Reichelt, former Minister of Health Jens Spahn (CDU) also appeared in the current season. Now there are only three parts left: Next week, the author and prostitute Salomé Balthus will be the guest of Kurt Krömer. Krömer is also scheduled to interview director Rosa von Praunheim and comedian Faisal Kawusi.
