Let the games continue! NBC has ordered a fourth season of 20 episodes for The Wall TV show. Three episodes of the third season will air in October, starting tomorrow night.
Hosted by Chris Hardwick, the game show follows pairs of players as they pursue a cash prize of up to $12 million. When a team answers a trivia question correctly, a green ball drops from the top of the grid-like wall and bounces randomly toward the bottom of the four-stories high structure. At the bottom of the wall, the ball will land in one of many slots, each with a value of $1 to $1 million.
Here’s NBC’s press release about The Wall’s renewal:
