A panel of four performers & comedians create characters, scenes & songs on the spot, in the style of short-form improvisation games. Topics for games are based on audience suggestions or subjects by the host. The show takes the form of a game show, in which the host arbitrarily assigns points & randomly chooses a winner at the end of each episode.
The CW has renewed Whose Line Is It Anyway? for another season. The long-running improvisational comedy series, which originally ran from 1998 to 2007 on ABC, was revived by The CW in 2013 and added as part of its off-season lineup.
Today's pickup will see the show returning for its fifth season on The CW in summer 2017.
