There are no more questions to be answered. 

One on the longest running television game shows has been canceled. 

After airing for 17 years, Who Wants to Be a Millionaire has been canceled after 17 years. The show featured contestants answering multiple choice questions of increasing difficulty, building up to the $1 million question.

The syndicated game show debuted on ABC in 2002, where it aired over 300 episodes. It quickly became a cultural 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.

“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. 

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