“Ellen’s Game of Games” will return for more fun and games on NBC!
The network has renewed Ellen’s unscripted game show for a fourth season.
Ellen announced the show’s pickup on Tuesday during her daytime talk show, “The Ellen Degeneres Show,” which airs daily on the network.
"I'm so excited. I love this show so much. It makes me so happy. I love games. It combines all my favorite things: prizes and surprises. I’m sure you’ve seen it but if you haven’t, you’ve been missing out. We can’t wait to get started on the next round of episodes,” she told the audience.
In celebration, Ellen looked back at some of her favorite moments with a montage from the past three seasons.
She also played one of her “Game of Games” segments called “Danger Word,” which requires a contestant not to say the "right" word. The winning team and half of the audience was gifted tickets to her "12 Days of Giveaways" tapings.
Ellen serves as host and executive producer on the one-hour show.
The show has been a strong and consistent performer for the network, averaging a 1.2 rating among adults 18-49 and 5.2 million total viewers with seven days of delayed viewing counted in, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Variety adds that the series is among the network’s “top 10 shows in terms of rating and viewership.”
“Game of Games” joins previously renewed NBC drama “This Is Us," which got a three-season order. “New Amsterdam” and comedies “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” and “Superstore” also scored renewals.
