Harald Schmidt continues to be extremely popular with many German TV viewers. In contrast to veteran TV veterans like Thomas Gottschalk, Schmidt has made himself rare. Now there’s a crazy idea to bring him back.

The RTL Christ production “The Passion” also made an impression on professional theologians – and immediately provoked cast ideas for a possible sequel.

“I think it’s good that RTL is making Jesus Christ the subject of “Passion” during prime time. Who else can do that from the established churches?” said the well-known canon lawyer Thomas Schüller on Thursday of the German Press Agency. Some passages would have really touched him. “I can well imagine that this format deserves a second chance,” said the theologian, who heads the Institute for Canon Law at the University of Münster. His idea: “Maybe with Harald Schmidt as speaker.”

In “The Passion – Live” actors and singers re-enacted the passion story of Jesus on Wednesday in a modern version and sang German pop songs. Thomas Gottschalk acted as narrator. A sequel seems possible – RTL explained that they are examining “an assignment for the coming year”.
