When you are preparing a show and you get this kind of show of confidence, you can only expect good things, as you are assured you will have the time to find your sweet spots and develop easily into a bonafide solid show. And that´s exactly what is happening to The Chase, getting renewed by GSN before even premiering.
The one-hour quiz show, in which three contestants battle in a fast-paced quiz competition against an all-knowing opponent, The Beast, is produced by ITV Studios America. The network has ordered eight episodes for season two, which is slated to air later this year. In the meantime, remember to watch the first season, premiering Tuesday, August 6th, at 9:00 P.M. ET/PT.
“The high stakes of this ‘all or nothing,’ ‘David vs. Goliath’ battle of the brains result in riveting television,” said Amy Introcaso-Davis, EVP, Programming and Development, GSN. “While there is great gameplay in THE CHASE, it is also wildly entertaining to watch the always engaging Brooke Burns spar with trivia savant, Mark Labbett aka The Beast.”
“We couldn’t be more delighted with the support that GSN has given THE CHASE and are thrilled that it has been picked up for a second season. THE CHASE team has done an outstanding job to bring this exciting, fun and fast-paced game show to life here in the US, and we look forward to a long, ongoing relationship with GSN,” said Paul Buccieri, Managing Director, ITV Studios International and President & CEO, ITV Studios America.
