Chris, 56, made the revelation on his radio show yesterday.
He said: “Of course, TFI Friday is coming back in September.
“Can I tell you a bit more about it? Oh, sure. The thing is, you don’t need a TV channel now.
“You just don’t need one.”
Chris added the format would allow them to be creative and use past unseen footage, such as when David Bowie appeared on the show in 1999.
He said: “It’s amazing what you can do.
“TFI Friday doesn’t have to be an hour-long, it could be longer, we could Livestream it.
“We’ve got all the annals and the back catalogue and library footage.
“So we’ve got the David Bowie footage that was never seen, and all that going on.”
The series ran between 1996 and 2000 and was revived for one series in 2015 following an anniversary special.
It featured live music from chart stars and saw Evans interview a host of celebs.
The TV star hosted the show until the last series when guest presenters such as the Spice Girls, Davina McCall and Dermot O'Leary stepped in.
Last year, Chris took time off from his Virgin Radio show in order to have kidney stone surgery.
He returned to the show with his urologist after spending time in hospital as reported by The Mirror.

He said the pain from the kidney stones left him in agony, revealing he initially thought he had trapped wind.
Explaining how he ended up in hospital earlier this month, the star said: "I ended up in A&E on Sunday morning at two o’clock. I called 111 and thought I had sort of 'man pain', I thought I had trapped wind… they kept me in for a couple of nights straight away – I got a CT scan.
"After I arrived, they knew what it was straightaway or what they were straightaway… the kidney stones are no more. All three of them have been comprehensively annihilated."
