The CW revealed premiere dates for their fall schedule today, and in doing so confirmed that Penn & Teller: Fool Us will be returning for an eighth season in October. The British-acquired magic act reality show, which stars comedic magicians Penn & Teller, originated out of the UK but has found the bulk of its success stateside.

The show has aired on The CW since 2014 as part of its summer roster, but this year that is changing. The move to its fall lineup could be due to the fact that the network is expanding its programming to seven nights a week for the first time, and needs to fill those additional time slots.

Penn & Teller: Fool Us is an hour-long magic competition hosted by the titular famed Las Vegas entertainers. Episodes feature up-and-coming magicians who are invited to perform their best trick in front of a live audience, and the legendary duo try their best to figure out just how the trick was executed. If they are fooled successfully, the magician who performed the act is invited to join Penn & Teller on stage at their show in the Rio Hotel and Casino.
