If you tune in each week to watch Penn & Teller: Fool Us, you probably noticed that the finale for season four went unaired out of respect for the victims of the Las Vegas shooting and the death of comedian Ralphie May back in October. You won’t have to wait much longer now, as The CW has confirmed an air date for the last episode via press release:
THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 30
PENN & TELLER: FOOL US
“Hanging Out with Penn & Teller” – (9:00-10:00 p.m. ET) (TV-PG) (HDTV)
SEASON FINALE – Aspiring magicians are invited to perform their best trick to try and fool the world-famous team of Penn & Teller, who will get to see the trick only once and have to immediately try to work it out. 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. The magicians featured in the episode include Patrik Kuffs, Lamanske, Adam Wilber and Hector. Alyson Hannigan (“How I Met Your Mother”) serves as host (#406). Original airdate 10/02/2017.”
The press release was then followed up by tweets from Penn & Teller themselves:
Still no word on whether Fool Us is getting renewed for season five, but considering that its ratings are generally up for its typical summer time slot, it's probably a lock to return next year.
