'Weakest Link' Reboot Confirmed With Jane Lynch Replacing Anne Robinson
Who didn't love The Weakest Link?
It was prime after-school watching for Brits as we tried our best to keep up with the fast-paced questions and scoured in fear at the terrifyingly steely-faced host, Ann Robinson.
The gameshow ran for an incredible 12 years from 2000 to 2012, encompassing a massive 1,694 episodes - and guess what? It's returning.
Picked up by NBC, the popular gameshow is being revived with Glee actress Jane Lynch as host. Yes, we can SEE IT.
At least 13 new episodes after planned to be filmed later this year with the network promising to "deliver the fast-paced and quick-witted pillars of the original British format created by the BBC with a few modern twists."
It added: "The hybrid game show sees contestants answer general knowledge questions to bank prize money across multiple rounds.
"At the end of each round, the contestants vote out who they perceive to be the Weakest Link remaining."
That just sent shivers down our spine.
Jane Lynch, who played Sue Sylvester in the hit musical comedy-drama, said of her new post: "I've been a longtime fan of this game-changing quiz show since it first debuted.
"Each time the phrase 'You are the Weakest Link. Goodbye.' passes my lips, it will be with great reverence and delight."
We reckon Lynch could give Robinson a run for her money. Anyone else?
The format of the show sees nine contestants taking turns to answer general knowledge questions.
The main aim of the round is to answer nine questions right in a row and earn more and more money within the time limit.
A wrong answer breaks the chain and loses the money earned up until that point.
Before every round the contestants are ask who they they 'the weakest link' is and the player with the most votes in eliminated.
While we don't have an exact launch date yet, it's predicted The Weakest Link will air on NBC in 2021.
