ABC is bringing back ‘Who Wants to be a Millionaire’ for a two-week summer special, the network has announced.

Regis “Is That Your Final Answer?” Philbin will reprise his role as host.

It’s a 10th anniversary celebration of sorts for one of the most popular game shows of all time, which debuted in 1999 and became an instant sensation.

The limited summer run kicks off Sunday, August 9th, at 8 p.m. and will air for 11 consecutive nights, with the grand finale on Sunday, August 23rd.

The prime-time ‘Millionaire’ cashed out in 2002, while Meredith Vieira took over hosting duties for the daytime syndicated version.
