NBC Renews ‘The Wall’ for Season 3

20 New Episodes Ordered

NBC has issued a third season renewal to game show “The Wall,” with an order for 20 new hour-long episodes. Debuting on Dec. 9, 2016 and hosted by Chris Hardwick, the series features two-person teams competing for a cash prize. If a question is answered correctly a green ball falls down the five-story wall, adding the value of the slot to the players’ winning total. If it’s wrong, a red ball will fall and deduct the value from the team. With more than $12 million on the line, teammates have to work together to build a huge cash prize.

”Not only is The Wall intense, heartwarming and funny, but if the ball drops into a high-dollar slot, an entire family’s fortune can be completely changed for the better,” said Paul Telegdy, President of Alternative & Reality Group at NBC Entertainment. “Huge congratulations to Universal Television Alternative Studio, Glassman Media and SpringHill Entertainment for producing a series that is not only compelling television but has the potential to be life-changing for our contestants.”

“The Wall” was developed by Glassman Media in conjunction with CORE Media and produced in association with Universal Television Alternative Studio. The format also airs in 20 territories around the world.
