NBCUniversal Cable net Bravo is reviving the Emmy Award-winning trivia game show Cash Cab, following its extensive run on Discovery Channel.

Long-time host and comedian Ben Bailey will return to the streets of New York to test the knowledge of unsuspecting locals and tourists alike for the chance to win fast cash. The Bravo reboot, however, will serve up more pop culture questions than its original, as well as guest appearances from Bravo celebrities.

Produced by Lion Television USA, an All3Media company, each episode of the series will feature two to three games beginning the moment a contestant enters the taxi. Answering enough questions correctly before arriving at their destination will award the passenger with a cash prize. However, should the contestant get three questions wrong, they’re kicked to the curb.

As with its previous incarnation, rides will also allow challengers two “shout-outs” where they can pull over and ask strangers for help answering a question. Passengers that successfully make it to their destination will have the option of walking away with the money or playing a double or nothing video bonus round.

The series previously aired in the U.S. via Discovery Channel from 2005-2012, and was rebooted by that network for a two-year run during 2017 and 2018.

Cash Cab is executive produced by Lion’s Tony Tackaberry, Allison Corn, PJ Morrison and Stan Hsue¬†serving as executive producers. Ben Bailey also serves as executive producer.

Cash Cab premieres Oct. 7 at 11:30 p.m. ET/PT on Bravo, with new episodes airing Sunday through Thursday.
