Wheel of Fortune Returning to ITV


Graham Norton is set to host an all-new version of Wheel of Fortune, which is headed to ITV1 and ITVX in 2024.

Based on the successful global format, the show is returning for an 8×1-hour run, which includes two celebrity specials. The epic game show will again be centered on a giant carnival wheel as the contestants spin to win a life-changing cash prize.

Wheel of Fortune previously ran in the U.K. from 1988 to 2001 on ITV.

Whisper North, part of the Sony Pictures Television-backed Whisper Group, is producing the U.K. treatment. The original U.S. show is produced by Sony Pictures Television Studios, a Sony Pictures Entertainment Company, and is distributed by Paramount Global Content Distribution along with the format rights.

Norton said: “I’m beyond excited to be bringing such an iconic American show to a new British audience. My first ever TV job was a game show on ITV, so this feels like coming full circle. You might even call it a wheel!”

Katie Rawcliffe, head of entertainment commissioning at ITV, said: “We are thrilled to have the much loved Graham Norton bringing this iconic game show to our viewers. Anything can happen on the spin of a wheel; it is going to be so much fun.”

Sunil Patel, Whisper CEO, said: “We’re thrilled to be bringing such a well-known and globally loved show to ITV primetime, and of course, to be working with the incredible Graham Norton, who we know will bring the show alive for contestants and audiences alike.”
