One of the more surprising elements of The CW’s fall schedule unveiled last month was that there was no room for Penn & Teller: Fool Us – one of the longest-running anchors of the network’s unscripted slate.

That’s changed now as the network has renewed the show for Season 11.

More from Deadline

It is one of a handful of renewals at the network; The CW also picked up All American for a seventh season and dated season four of religious drama The Chosen.

The magic competition show is centered around the legendary duo, who invite aspiring magicians are invited to perform their best trick to try and fool them. Anyone who succeeds wins the right to perform with Penn & Teller in their show at the Rio Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas.  Penn & Teller see the trick only once and have to immediately try to work it out.

Brad Schwartz, President of Entertainment, The CW Network recently told Deadline that the show is a “crazy consistent performer”. Season 11 will likely launch in early 2025.

Season 10 of the show, which has run for more than 150 episodes since its launch in 2011, premiered in October 2023 and just finished airing in April.

Schwartz said that one of the network’s priorities was trying to find another unscripted to pair with it on Friday nights. It is still figuring out its unscripted priorities, having swiped left on FBoy Island, which Schwartz said “didn’t work”, perhaps due to being “too young” for broadcast.

It is still deciding on whether SallyAnn Salsano’s 24/7 Police, which was its biggest unscripted premiere in three years, will return, and also has true-crime strand Crime Nation.

Penn & Teller: Fool Us comes from Penn Jillette, Teller, Peter Adam Golden, Andrew Golder and Lincoln Hiatt, who, exec produce, produced by 1/17 Productions and September Films.
