THE CW NETWORK ANNOUNCES ADDITIONAL 2016 SUMMER PREMIERES

PENN & TELLER: FOOL US Returns Monday, July 11 With New Host Alyson Hannigan

Cycle Three of MASTERS OF ILLUSION Premieres Friday, May 20

New Episodes of WHOSE LINE IS IT ANYWAY? Debut Monday, May 23

April 5, 2016 (Burbank, CA) -The CW Network has set its summer premiere dates, including a new cycle of PENN & TELLER: FOOL US, with new host Alyson Hannigan, the return of WHOSE LINE IS IT ANYWAY?, and Cycle Three of magic series MASTERS OF ILLUSION.

Returning Monday, July 11 (8:00-9:00pm ET/PT), PENN & TELLER: FOOL US is a one-hour competition series celebrating magic and featuring the legendary duo Penn & Teller. On each episode of PENN & TELLER: FOOL US, aspiring magicians are invited to perform their best trick to try and fool the world-famous team of Penn & Teller. Anyone who succeeds wins the right to perform with Penn & Teller in their celebrated show at the Rio Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas. The live studio audience and the TV audience watch along with Penn & Teller as they try to figure out the secrets. Penn & Teller see the trick only once and have to immediately try to work it out. The live studio audience knows there are no camera tricks, secret edits or helpful camera cuts. This is all real magic. Hosted by actress Alyson Hannigan ("How I Met Your Mother," "Buffy the Vampire Slayer"), PENN & TELLER: FOOL US is created and produced by 117 PRODUCTIONS and September Films (part of DCD Media), with executive producers Penn Jillette, Teller, Peter Adam Golden and Andrew Golder.

WHOSE LINE IS IT ANYWAY? is back with all new episodes Monday, May 23 (9-9:30pm ET/PT and 9:30-10:00pm ET/PT). Hosted by comedian Aisha Tyler, WHOSE LINE IS IT ANYWAY? features cast members Ryan Stiles, Wayne Brady and Colin Mochrie, who helped make the original U.S. version of this comedy improv series such a hit. Along with a special guest comedian in each episode, the cast members must put their comedic skills to the test through a series of spontaneous improv games. Prompted only by random ideas supplied by the studio audience and host Aisha Tyler, our four performers must use the little information they have and their wild imaginations to depict different characters and an array of scenes, as well as perform songs. After each round of improvisation, Aisha will dole out points to our four performers and declare a winner at the end of every episode.

Based on the wildly successful U.K. format, which also spawned a previous incarnation in the US that ran for eight seasons on ABC, WHOSE LINE IS IT ANYWAY? is executive produced by Dan Patterson, Mark Leveson, Jimmy Mulville, Ryan Stiles and Wayne Brady. Co-created by Dan Patterson and Mark Leveson, "Whose Line Is It Anyway?" is from Angst Productions and Hat Trick Productions.

The third cycle of MASTERS OF ILLUSION premieres with back-to-back new episodes Friday, May 20 (8-8:30pm ET/PT and 8:30-9:00pm ET/PT), followed by the season finale of THE ORIGINALS (9:00-10:00pm ET/PT).

Hosted by actor Dean Cain ("Supergirl," "Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman"), MASTERS OF ILLUSION features amazing magic performed by cutting-edge illusionists and escape artists, and performers in each episode displaying skills ranging from perplexing interactive mind magic to hilarious comedy routines. Live audience members and viewers at home will be baffled by the astounding skills of these modern illusionists. Masters of Illusion is from Associated Television International with executive producers David McKenzie ("The 38th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards," "Marie"), Gay Blackstone ("The World Magic Awards" 2007-2009), David Martin ("The World Magic Awards" 2007-2009, "Marie") and Al Schwartz ("The 38th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards," "The Golden Globe Awards" 2013 and 2014, "The Gulf is Back"), along with co-executive producers Justin Pierce ("The Rocky Saga: Going The Distance") and Jim Romanovich ("The 38th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards," "Marie").

As previously announced, REIGN returns with new episodes Monday, April 25 (8:00-9:00pm ET/PT), concluding its season on Monday, June 20 (8:00-9:00pm ET/PT). The final season of BEAUTY AND THE BEAST debuts Thursday, June 2 (9:00-10:00pm ET/PT); the new limited-series CONTAINMENT premieres Tuesday, April 19 (9:00-10:00pm ET/PT) and will continue its 13-episode run through the summer.
