It is being reported that ABC has cancelled Match Game after five seasons. The revived game show aired its final episode last summer, though it has been out of production since early 2020.

Match Game originated back in 1962, going on to air numerous revivals over the decades that followed. This latest update, hosted by Alec Baldwin, premiered in 2016 and was a decent performer for the network during the summer months.

In the show, four contestants compete for a $25,000 grand prize by attempting to match the answers of six celebrities in fill-in-the-blank questions.
