Who Wants To Be A Millionaire has captivated American audiences since the show first premiered back in 1999 and to commemorate its 20th anniversary, ABC has decided to bring the show back for "a special run" of episodes featuring celebrity contestants. Keep reading and we'll show you how to watch Who Wants To Be A Millionaire online from anywhere in the world.
In addition to having celebrities as guests, the rebooted version of the show will now have Jimmy Kimmel as its host. Who Wants To Be A Millionaire has also changed up its game play a bit by giving contestants the ability to invite a guest, such as a relative, teacher or even a famous trivia expert, to help them answer the show's more difficult questions.
The biggest change though, is that audience members will now have a chance to play along at home after each episode. The show now has a mobile app for iOS and Android called Millionaire Live that will let U.S. residents play Who Wants To Be A Millionaire for a chance to win the same dollar amount that each celebrity earned for charity while playing during that episode. In the app, at-home players will also have the same lifelines that are available on the show at their disposal.
Whether you're a long-time fan of Who Wants To Be A Millionaire or just want to tune in to see Will Forte, Nikki Glaser, Dr. Phil, Jane Fonda, Anderson Cooper, Eric Stonestreet and other celebrities play the game for charity, we have all the details on how you can watch the show online or on TV from wherever you are in the world.
