A new version is currently in development at NBCUniversal, but has yet to air.
Mobile game[edit | edit source]
During the show's run, many board games were created and all of them saw a release, but it wouldn't be until nearly 20 years after it last aired that a mobile game would be made. The game was made by SkyZone Mobile and is based on the first syndicated version of the show and was released on Brew (Binary Runtime Environment for Wireless), Java, Blackberry and iOS devices. A Lite version of the game was also released on iOS devices around the time. After the game's release, it vanished and can no longer be played.

The current status of SkyZone Mobile is also unknown. Screenshots of the iPhone and Blackberry versions and footage from the Brew version can be found online, but the game itself has not resurfaced online and it's unknown if any playable ROM of the game still exists or if it can still be playable.
