The Celebrity Family Feud host has everyone’s attention.
On February 1, Deadline became the first to announce that the hit competition series scored a season renewal through 2025-2026. The outlet also reported that it will mark 50 years since Family Feud‘s debut episode aired in July 1976. The show quickly followed up Deadline‘s big news by sharing it on social media and without missing a beat, Steve joined the celebration.
👏👏👏 We’re coming back! Thrilled to announce we’ve been renewed through the 2025-26 season, making it 50 years on TV! 👀🎉🥳 Let’s play more #FamilyFeud with the one and only #SteveHarvey! https://t.co/nCwx7MLQc6— Family Feud (@FamilyFeud) February 1, 2023
As soon as longtime viewers heard that Family Feud would remain on television through 2026, they immediately began reacting across social media. What’s more, some folks took the opportunity to make a demand about the host.
“That’s not long enough. We want Steve Harvey obligated to another decade at least,” one person wrote on Instagram. “I’m in as long as Steve’s in. Once he’s out I’m out,” a different user added. “My favorite game show ever,” another follower said on Twitter.

ICYMI: Family Feud wasn’t the only show in the TV franchise to be green lit for more seasons. Back in January, Steve posted on Instagram that Celebrity Family Feud will be back for season 9. Like its predecessor, the spinoff features groups of celebrities trying to work together to guess answers from a survey.
Last season, dedicated viewers saw notable celebrities like Simu Liu and the cast of Abbott Elementary take on other Hollywood names in a battle to see who could make the most money for the charity of their choosing.
