For the first time since the creation of France 2, the Tigers have not made a trip to Charente-Maritime. In fact, two years after deciding not to replace one of the three retired breeds, Adventure Line Productions announced that they would be completely removed from the show. “ALP and France Télévisions will dedicate until the end of their lives, an amount that will allow them to continue to receive all necessary care and to end their lives while respecting the dignity of the animal that is so dear to us”the production company identified in a press release published on February 24.

However, this should not be the only depiction of tigers. While filming new episodes is in full swing, production is still considering a way to incorporate the cats into “Fort Boyard.” “We’re working on different solutions, running a lot of tests, and haven’t decided what exactly we’ll do with the show.”, confirms Guillaume Ramen. When asked if it could be in computer graphics, the art producer answered: “It’s one possibility among others like reworked archive photos but nothing has been determined yet.”.
