Great news for syndicated game show fans! The hosts of Family Feud, Jeopardy! and Wheel of Fortune will all return for more seasons.
Alex Trebek has signed on to more seasons of Jeopardy!, through the 2017-18 season. Pat Sajak and Vanna White have both signed on to more Wheel of Fortune through the 2017-18 season.
The most exciting news is that Steve Harvey has signed a deal with Fremantle to host five more years of Family Feud. This will last Harvey through the 2019-20 season. Harvey's first contract with the show, in 2010, lasted him for two seasons. At the beginning of the 2011-12 season (his second on Feud), Harvey's contract was extended through 2015.
This will make Steve Harvey tied with Richard Dawson for the longest-running host of Family Feud (next to Richard Dawson). This will definitely make Steve Harvey the longest-running host for consecutive seasons (10). Dawson had 10 seasons total, 9 consecutive (1976-85, 1994-95). Richard Combs had six seasons (1988-94). Louie Anderson had 3 seasons (1999-2002), Karn had 4 seasons (2002-06) and O'Hurley had four seasons (2006-10).
No word on Who Wants to be a Millionaire? with Terry Crews or Let's Ask America with Bill Bellamy. Celebrity Name Game has already been picked up for a second season with host Craig Ferguson.
