The CW confirmed the show’s return with a press release this afternoon, saying that new episodes of Whose Line will air on the network this summer. A premiere date will be announced at a later time.
The new incarnation will be hosted by The Talk host Aisha Tyler, a comedian who also stars on FX’s Archer. Master improvisers Mochrie, Ryan Stiles, and Wayne Brady — all cast members of the original show — will appear in each episode, along with one special guest comedian.
