NBC announced today that Hollywood Game Night has been picked up for a sixth season. The prime time game show has been a consistently-solid performer for the network over the course of its run, airing in either the mid-season or summer months.

Hosted by Jane Lynch, who won Emmy Awards in 2014 and 2015 for her work on the show, the series takes dueling contestants and teams them each up with three celebrities to compete in various casual games. Last year's fifth-season run continued to attract viewers, as during its second half it consistently took the top spot against its broadcast competition among adults 18-49.

NBC has ordered 13 episodes for Season 6 of Hollywood Game Night, which is its second-highest episode count behind only Season 2. A premiere date has not been announced, though a return sometime this year is expected.
