It is being reported that Ellen's Game of Games has been cancelled by NBC after four seasons. The news comes eight months after the game show wrapped its now-final 20-episode run, and in the same year that host Ellen DeGeneres will be ending her eponymous talk show after 19 seasons.

Ellen's Game of Games features supersized versions of fan-favorite games taken from her aforementioned daytime talk show. Contestants are selected from the audience to compete in a variety of challenges ranging from answering time-pressured questions to maneuvering large obstacles - and even taking plunges into the unknown.
