The CW Revives “Whose Line is it Anyway?” for New Season; Aisha Tyler Named Host
Update: The CW is the network behind the upcoming revival of Whose Line is it Anyway?. The CW’s revival of Whose Line is it Anyway? will debut this summer.
During the launch of all the improv comedy shows that have come over the past few years, people constantly say the same thing: why won’t they just bring back Whose Line is it Anyway?. Good news: they are. Colin Mochrie today announced the previously-discussed rumors that Warner Bros. is bringing back the iconic improv comedy show for a new season to The CW. TVGuide is reporting that The CW is launching the new series. Aisha Tyler has been named the new host, replacing Drew Carey. However, the old Whose Line cast will be back. Colin Mochrie, Ryan Stiles, and Wayne Brady are confirmed to return.
The original American version of Whose Line is it Anyway? ran from 1998 to 2007. Despite low expectations, running against Friends on Thursday nights, Whose Line proved to be a solid performer for ABC. The series, even after cancellation, has enjoyed success in DVD sales, various spin-offs, and tens of millions of views on YouTube.
I think our love of Whose Line is it Anyway? in these parts is well established so I don’t need to tell you how excited we are. How about we just let Colin show you. Excited for the new series? By the way, thanks to reader Thomas Drawbraugh for one of the sources.
