It’s been almost three years since Impact Wrestling left the channel, but Anthem Sports has announced the show is headed back to Spike … at least in the UK.

The promotion’s parent company announced on Tuesday that they’ve singed a new television deal with Spike UK to broadcast Impact in the United Kingdom and Ireland starting this Spring.

The press release states that “From Spring 2017, IMPACT Wrestling, TNA pay-per-views, including One Night Only specials will be available on Spike UK, and TNA Xplosion exclusive to My5, which is part of the Channel 5 stable available on Sky TV (160), Freeview (31), Freesat (141), Virgin Media (154) and other DTT platforms.”

“New episodes of IMPACT Wrestling will premiere on Friday nights, quenching the appetite of U.K. fans to view IMPACT Wrestling within hours of the US premiere broadcast.”

Impact will continue to be on Pop on Thursday nights in the United States.
