‘Whose Line Is It Anyway?’ to end after 12 seasons, Colin Mochrie says
” In January, we will shoot our final season. We are grateful for all your support over the years. “
The beloved improvisational comedy show — where everything is made up and the points don’t matter — will end on the CW after filming its upcoming 12th season, master improviser Colin Mochrie said Friday.
“Hey everyone. He tweeted that he hoped you are enjoying the current season Whoseline ,”. “We will be shooting our final season in January. We are grateful for your support over the years. “
Representatives from the CW declined comment on the show’s cancellation. Warner Bros. did no immediate response to EW’s request to comment.
The long-running comedy series, which was an adaptation of the 1988 British show of the same name, first aired on ABC from 1998 to 2004 before pivoting to ABC Family from 2005 to 2007.

Hosted by Drew Carey, it featured Mochrie, Ryan Stiles, Wayne Brady, and another guest comedian putting their quick-thinking skills to the test as they finagled their way through a bunch of delightfully absurd comedy and musical sketches for points. Carey was crowned the winner at the end of each episode, seemingly randomly.
Back in 2013, six years after Whose Line had ended, Mochrie was the first to share the news that the legendary series would officially return to television once again. He tweeted that “Oh, by-the-way, Whose Line will be back” at the time. “More details later. “
The CW confirmed the same day that a revival of this show, hosted by Aisha Tyler, had been renewed. Brady, Mochrie, and Stiles all returned for it, and were joined by recurring guest stars Jeff B. Davis, Gary Anthony Williams, Greg Proops, Brad Sherwood, Charles Esten, and Keegan-Michael Key.
