The CW is making at least one potentially good programming decision this year: According to EW, the normally teen drama-oriented network is set to revive classic improv series Whose Line Is it Anyway? this summer. It's like the 90's all over again!
The news was broken by original series star Colin Mochrie on his Twitter today:
Oh, by the way, Whose Line is coming back. More details later.— Colin Mochrie (@colinmochrie) March 1, 2013
The CW later confirmed the pick-up in a press release, which stated that the reincarnation would air on the network sometime this summer, and will be hosted by Archer and The Talk's Aisha Taylor. Original series stars Mochrie, Ryan Stiles, and Wayne Brady will all appear as well, with "one special guest comedian."
The original series ran between 1988 and 1998, and was hosted by current Price is Right host Drew Carey. According to Carey's rep, they've heard nothing about the revived series as of yet, meaning that there are no plans to have him back along with everyone else. But hey, there's still time.
