(ABC/Heidi Gutman)

How many different ways can you describe the word “renewal”? Well, ABC apparently renewed The $100,000 Pyramid series for a sixth season with new episodes to air sometime this summer.

A game show hosted by Michael Strahan, The $100,000 Pyramid features famous people teaming up with contestants to play word games to compete for big cash prizes. Celebrities appearing in the fifth season include Rosie O’Donnell, Nate Berkus, Michael Kosta, Roy Wood Jr., Rachel Dratch, Chris Redd, Dr. Mehmet Oz, Daphne Oz, Alex Moffat, Michelle Collins, Dominique Jackson, Indya Moore, Ali Wentworth, Sara Haines, Kal Penn, Michelle Buteau, Lorraine Bracco, Ralph Macchio, Paige Davis, Joe Gatto, Sal Vulcano, Desi Lydic, Mikel Welch, Bridget Everett, Dulcé Sloan, Kathy Najimy, Mario Cantone, Ana Gasteyer, Rachel Dratch, Joe Gatto, James Murray, Ryan Eggold, Elizabeth Marvel, Joe Tessitore, Tiki Barber, Ginger Zee, Dascha Polanco, Dorinda Medley, Sonja Morgan, Ana Gasteyer, Luke Kirby, Ashanti, Clay Aiken, Kal Penn, Kathy Najimy, Neil Degrasse Tyson , Gilbert Godfried, Mario Cantone, Laura Benanti, Joe Tessitore and Bridget Everett.

Broadcast on Wednesday evenings last summer, the fifth season of The $100,000 Pyramid earned an average rating of 0.48 in the 18-49 age group and 3.49 million viewers. Compared to season four, this represents a 30% drop in the demo and a 21% drop in viewership in the Live+ same day ratings (including DVR playback until 3:00 a.m.). Although these numbers do not include delayed or streaming viewing, they are a very good indicator of a show’s performance, especially when compared to others on the same channel.

Although ABC did not announce the sixth season renewal, Sony’s casting site for the show did. The “About” page states that “Season 6 is expected to premiere in the summer of 2022.”

Famous players and a premiere date for season six are expected to be announced in the coming months.
