CBS has ordered a reboot of LINGO, the game show where contestants try to guess five letter words. (AKA the game show version of Wordle, though variations aired in 1987-1988, 2002-2007, and 2011 in he US.)

According to CBS, “RuPaul Charles brings his one-of-a-kind personality to this primetime order of the clever, competitive and unpredictable game, which features teams of two as they face off in fast-paced puzzle rounds to guess letters that reveal seemingly simple words. At the end of each one-hour episode packed with witty commentary and gameplay, the winning two teams will make it through to a nerve-wracking final showdown where one team will walk away with an additional big cash prize.”

“We’re all ready to have fun again, and LINGO is the answer,” said Charles in a statement.

“We give you a letter, and you guess the rest! The word game craze is sweeping the nation, and LINGO will deliver a fast-paced, fun and addictive show for the whole family,” said Mitch Graham, SVP of Alternative Programming, CBS. “RuPaul’s flair and sharp wit, coupled with the ability for viewers to play along at home, make this a timely show with wide appeal that we’re excited to join our network lineup.”

Layla Smith, Objective Media group chief executive officer added, “We are O-V-E-R the M-O-O-N to be making LINGO for America with CBS and the amazing RuPaul.”

Casting is currently underway.
