Whose Line Is It Anyway? Is COMING BACK!

Whose Line Is It Anyway? the improv show hosted by Drew Carey from 1998-2004, is coming back. My inner nerd could not be more excited. The outer one too. I once spent an entire Saturday watching old episodes on YouTube. Worth it 100%.

The CW picked it up and Aisha Tyler (Archer) will host. Apparently the old cast of Ryan Stiles, Colin Mochrie, and Wayne Brady will also return, along with a rotating special guest per episode. The format of the half-hour show is comedians doing improv games based on prompts from the host and suggestions from the audience. A “winner” is arbitrarily chosen at the end (“Welcome to Whose Line Is It Anyway? where everything’s made up and the points don’t matter.”). The show became something of a cult classic and I am in that cult. Please watch some clips on YouTube.

The Hollywood Reporter broke the news today and they’re legit, so I trust them. CW network president Mark Pedowitz ordered 10 episodes for this summer. The exact date is TBD. Here’s hoping they do really well and get a regular place in the CW lineup!
