From NBC: “Password”, which has in recent years has been featured on “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon,” will be rebooted on NBC this summer and hosted by Keke Palmer, star of Jordan Peele’s upcoming movie, “Nope.”

Palmer will command the “Password” podium as contestants from all walks of life are partnered with Jimmy Fallon and other celebrities to face off in the ultimate game of words. Fallon will play in each of the eight hourlong episodes as the celebrity/contestant duos compete for cash prizes by guessing a secret password using only one-word clues.

The premiere episode will be dedicated to Betty White. Regularly playing on the original series, as well as on “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon,” the iconic TV star has long been thought of as “Password’s” greatest player. The season will then culminate with a special episode featuring a star-studded, all-celebrity lineup playing for charity.

The trailblazing series established itself as the original celebrity word game when it launched in 1961 and has showcased hundreds of celebrity guests and generated several spinoffs over the course of six decades. NBC revived the show in 1979 and 1984 prior to becoming a hit game on both “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon” and “The Tonight Show.”

It was recently announced that Fallon’s other hit primetime series, “That’s My Jam,” was renewed for a second season on NBC.

“Password” is produced by Fremantle in association with Universal Television Alternative Studio, a division of Universal Studio Group, and Electric Hot Dog. Jimmy Fallon, Jim Juvonen, and Jennifer Mullin will serve as executive producers, along with John Quinn who will also serve as showrunner.
