Wheel of Fortune is one of the most successful syndicated shows on television, with over 26 million weekly viewers, and the iconic game show has won seven Emmys, including the 2011 Emmy for Outstanding Game Show. (Season 39 premieres Sept. 13.) Since its debut, the show has given away more than $250 million in cash and prizes to contestants.

The series is so popular that producers launched a celebrity version earlier this year, and in exciting news, Wheel of Fortune is bringing in more famous hands to spin its iconic wheel. Season 2 of Celebrity Wheel of Fortune will premiere Sunday, Sept. 26.

Pat Sajak and Vanna White, who have hosted the mothership Wheel of Fortune for nearly four decades, will host this version as celebrity contestants spin the wheel and solve word puzzles for a chance to win up to one million dollars for charity.
