What do the Pearson Big 3, a Grey Sloan Memorial surgeon, and the Bachelor Nation host all have in common? They’re all part of the upcoming Celebrity Wheel of Fortune on ABC.
TVLine shared the all-celebrity lineup. Chris Harrison’s name was on the bill, along with a few other familiar faces. There isn’t long left until Celebrity Wheel of Fortune airs.
ABC hasn’t just opted for stars from shows on its own network. While Grey’s Anatomy and Bachelor Nation are there, This Is Us, Queer Eye, and A.P. Bio stars are also on the list.
When Will Celebrity Wheel of Fortune Premiere?
Before getting into the lineup, let’s look at the premiere date. Celebrity Wheel of Fortune is part of the midseason lineup, premiering on Thursday, Jan. 7 at 8/7c. It will take over the Station 19 timeslot for a couple of months.
Fans of the TGIT lineup will be disappointed. Station 19, Grey’s Anatomy, and A Million Little Things will go on a winter break on Dec. 17 and not return until March 2021. You can blame the pandemic for this. The shows haven’t filmed enough episodes due to the current regulations in place to bring them back in January as usual. Instead, ABC is holding them off until March, where they will be able to run until May and maybe into June.
There may be fewer episodes to the season for each show. This has still not been fully confirmed just yet, but it is something all shows will consider for the 2020–2021 season.

There are drama stars, comedy actors, reality TV show stars, and much more.
