The reality hoax series is coming back for a fourth season.
May 19, 2023
TBS is bringing back The Joe Schmo Show. The network announced that a fourth season of the reality hoax series has been ordered for a premiere in 2024.
The show first debuted back in 2003 on Spike, airing for two seasons before being shelved until 2013 when it was brought back for Season 3. Nearly 10 years after that, the show is coming back again with a new iteration on a new network and a new host.
"When The Joe Schmo Show launched 20 years ago, it was ahead of its time," said Jason Sarlanis, President, Turner Networks, ID, and HLN, linear & streaming. "In rebooting this classic for a modern, savvy audience, it gives us the opportunity to comment on the often absurd and hilarious tropes of reality television in ways our viewers will love."
Season 4 of The Joe Schmo Show will be hosted by Cat Deeley. Its show within a show format makes an unsuspecting guy believe he is a contestant on a reality TV show, when in fact, they are surrounded by a cast of actors.
You asked, we listened-- Joe Schmo is back! Get ready for the same show within a show you loved 20 years ago, but with a hilarious twist making regular ole Ben believe he's competing on a reality show when he's actually surrounded by actors.
