Talkback was sold to Pearson Television in 2000. The company merged with Thames Television in 2003 and the combined entity was renamed Talkback Thames. On 23 November 2011, it was announced that Talkback Thames would split into four separate production companies; Boundless, Retort, Talkback and Thames. The split took effect on 1 January 2012. On 2 September 2018, FremantleMedia UK was renamed to simply Fremantle UK. The rebranding of the many production divisions from the company soon followed with Talkback receiving the new logo after six-and-a-half years of the old one, which was inspired by the original design from 1984 since its launch whilst retaining the green colour the company has been associated with since 2003, when it merged with Thames to form Talkback Thames. It was designed in-house.
