It's the end of an era.
Who Wants to Be a Millionaire has been canceled and won't be back for the 2019-20 season, Variety reports. "After a successful 17-year run, ‘Who Wants To Be A Millionaire’ will not return in national syndication for the 2019-20 season," a spokesperson for the show told Variety.
The long-running game show, in which contestants attempt to answer multiple choice questions in hopes of reaching to the final stage (and $1 million), premiered back in 1999 on ABC. The first season of the show garnered an impressive 28 million total viewers. Since then it has produced almost 3,000 episodes. The U.S. version of the show racked up seven Daytime Emmy Awards.
The show, which is currently hosted by Chris Harrison, was originally hosted by Regis Philbin. Meredith Vieira replaced Philbin after the show got syndicated in 2002 and acted as host until 2013. Cedric the Entertainer and Terry Crews have also hosted the show in the past.
