NBC RENEWS GLOBAL GAME SHOW SENSATION "WEAKEST LINK" FOR THIRD SEASON, HOSTED BY JANE LYNCH

Hit Reboot From BBC Studios Los Angeles Productions and Universal Television Alternative Studio Continues Its Strong Stateside Momentum

UNIVERSAL CITY, Calif. - August, 1, 2022 - NBC has renewed the international smash hit game show "Weakest Link" for a third season, co-produced by BBC Studios Los Angeles Productions and Universal Television Alternative Studio, a division of Universal Studio Group. The network has greenlit 20 episodes of the lightning fast, quick-witted series hosted by Emmy Award winner Jane Lynch ("Hollywood Game Night," "The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel"), who continues to executive produce. The fan-favorite show is a British import based on the iconic quiz show format distributed by BBC Studios. Production on the new season is set to begin this fall.

"Weakest Link" won over U.S. audiences on NBC by delivering on all of the hallmarks that have earned the quiz show a place in pop culture, from the fast-faced game play testing general knowledge and trivia to its signature send off, memorably conveyed by Lynch as only she could, "You are the weakest link. Goodbye."

The series has reached more than 17 million viewers this season across linear and digital platforms. Its current summer run has improved NBC's Monday 10 p.m. timeslot by double-digit percentages across the board, including an increase of 30% in the 18-49 demo and up 26% in total viewers.

Regarding the renewal, host and executive producer Jane Lynch remarked, "I'm very much looking forward to a third season of mocking contestants and encouraging discord."

The massively successful "Weakest Link" format distributed by BBC Studios has been produced in 46 territories around the globe over the past two decades, with more than 1,500 episodes having aired in the U.K. alone.

In each episode, eight contestants enter the studio as total strangers but must work together to bank the maximum amount of prize money available in each round. The contestants take turns to answer general knowledge questions to build chains of correct answers. Consecutive correct answers greatly increase the value of the chain, while incorrect answers break the chain and force the contestants to start over on the lowest rung with the smallest amount money. At the end of each round, contestants vote to eliminate the fellow contestant they consider to be the "Weakest Link" in the chain. The contestant who receives the highest number of votes leaves the game as the host declares the iconic phrase, "You are the Weakest Link. Goodbye."

"Weakest Link" is casting now for its third season. Put your trivia skills and pop culture knowledge to the test. If you have the speed and smarts to win the grand prize, apply at theweakestlinkcasting.com. You must be 18 years or older, and other terms and conditions may apply.
