“Wheel Of Fortune” COVID-Proofs Game Show As It Prepares To Head Back To The Studio

Pat Sajak and Vanna White are back!

Wheel Of Fortune is heading back to the studio and premiering new episodes next week!


Executive producer Mike Richards told Deadline how the long-running game show is adapting to filming during the coronavirus pandemic.

“Our challenge was not unique, to get back up and running in a way that is safe for everyone involved while making subtle improvements to make ‘America’s Game’ even better,” Richards said. “I think we have accomplished that in a big way, and our fans can be comfortable knowing that they’re going to tune in to see the Wheel of Fortune they love.”

Pat and the contestants will have a larger platform to help them maintain social distancing. Contestants will also get a “spinning cap” to help spin the wheel.

Sajak jokingly calls the cap, “the white thingy.”

The show will kick off it’s 38th season on Monday, Sept. 14!
