GSN Renews ‘The Chase’ Before Its Season One Debut

Gameshow from ITV Studios will bow on August 6

In a rare move for broadcast television, GSN has renewed gameshow “The Chase” for a second season before the show has even launched.

Series, hosted by Brooke Burns, is an hourlong quiz show from ITV Studios America and is based on a U.K. skein of the same name. Season one will debut on August 6.

GSN has ordered eight episodes for “The Chase’s” second run, and will roll them out later this year.

Renewals before a program has launched is not often seen. While Starz offered “Boss” a second season before its first premiered, this renewal strategy has recently only been seen in the digital space, as Netflix offered a second run to “Orange is the New Black” before its first season roll out later this month.
