Penn & Teller: Fool Us renewed for Season 8

Postby Michael Close » November 18th, 2020, 2:13 pm

Well, here's some fun news for all of you from the executive producers of Penn & Teller: Fool Us.

1. We just finished shooting the second half of season 7 at the (empty) Rio in Las Vegas, for a total of twenty-six episodes this year, including our one-hundredth episode. Go Magic!

2. New episodes will begin to air on or about January 8, 2021.

3. Shooting with Covid protocols proved challenging but possible, and the show looks great – including our virtual audience.

4. International acts participated with pre-taped tricks and as "live remotes."

5. The CW just can't get enough Fool Us. We are CASTING SEASON 8 now! Tell your friends. Tell yourself. Tell anyone with cool magic even if they are not your friend! Please send submissions to fooluscasting@gmail.com.

All the best,

Andrew Golder and Lincoln Hiatt, Executive Producers

This is great news! I thought the season was over with 13 episodes but I happened upon a new one this week. 26 is a wonderful number of shows.

Michael, how can we be part of the virtual audience?
