The NBC game show Deal or No Deal is being rebooted, with new host, actor Joe Manganiello, as well as a new location and new name: Deal or No Deal Island.
NBC posted on Instagram: Huge announcement! Coming back bigger and more exciting than ever.

Deal or No Deal Island, set to debut sometime in 2024, will film at an undisclosed island location. Manganiello will instruct contestants on deals with a banker between two briefcases with surprise amounts of money inside. The network shared more about the show in a release, revealing that “13 players are transported to the elusive Banker’s private island to compete for cash in a season-long, fully immersive competition,” adding that there will be “thrilling challenges” and “mind-bending dilemmas” that the contestants will be going through, with Joe “leading the game play, relaying the banker’s tempting offers and helping them through the toughest decisions of their lives.”
Mandel will serve as executive produce of the spinoff series; he served as host of Deal or No Deal from 2005 – 2009, as well as additional specials and a 2018 CNBC revival.
