Looks like that Who Wants to Be a Millionaire finally has its final answer. 

The syndicated game show has been canceled after 17 years. 

WWTBAM debuted on ABC in 2002, where it aired over 300 episodes. It quickly became a pop-culture phenomenon, first hosted by Regis Philbin. In 2013, when the buzz died down, it moved to syndication and Meredith Vieira took over as host. She was later succeeded by Cedric the Entertainer, Terry Crews and finally Chris Harrison, who has emceed since 2015.

To date, the show has aired nearly 3,000 episodes.

“After a successful 17-year run, Who Wants To Be A Millionaire will not return in national syndication for the 2019-20 season,” a rep for the show said. 

The series was produced by Valleycrest Productions Ltd. James Rowley served as executive producer of the show. The show was taped at Caesars Entertainment Studios in Las Vegas, Nevada.
