“I’ve been a longtime fan of this game-changing quiz show since it first debuted. Each time the phrase ‘You are the Weakest Link. Goodbye.’ passes my lips, it will be with great reverence and delight,” Jane said in a statement.

The Weakest Link originally debuted in the U.K. in 2000, and led to numerous international versions, including an American version that aired on NBC from 2001 to 2003.

The new show will “deliver the fast-paced and quick-witted pillars of the original British format…with a few modern twists,” according to a press release. NBC ordered 13 episodes, with production set to start sometime later this year.
