NBC has officially renewed Ellen’s Game of Games for a third season.
Multiple outlets report that the game show hosted by Ellen DeGeneres will return for season three. News of the renewal comes just two weeks into the show’s second season.
“We are delighted that America has wholeheartedly embraced this wildly entertaining and unpredictable show,” Meredith Ahr, head of alternative and reality at NBC Entertainment, said Wednesday in a statement. “Ellen’s signature humor, coupled with the clever twists she and the producers bring to each hilarious moment, puts Game of Games in a league of its own. We can’t wait to get started on season three.”
DeGeneres serves as host and executive producer of the one-hour game show. The show’s games are based on segments from DeGeneres’ daytime talk show, but this time contestants battle it out in pursuit of cash prizes.
