The CW announced today that Penn & Teller: Fool Us has been picked up for a ninth season. 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, typically as part of its summer roster. That changed in 2021 though, when it was moved to the fall lineup after the network expanded its programming to seven nights a week. The CW has yet to confirm if that will continue in 2022-2023.

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.
