Plot Synopsis

Executive produced and hosted by Elizabeth Banks, each one-hour episode of PRESS YOUR LUCK features three contestants competing against each other by answering questions to earn spins on the Big Board. Contestants then use their spins to win cash and prizes while trying to avoid the WHAMMY, who could take all of their winnings and leave them with nothing. The winning contestant moves on to the All-New Bonus Round to face the WHAMMY in a final battle for the chance to win a fortune. On Tuesday, June 11, 2019 at 10pm ET/PT, ABC debuted a "special early premiere" of PRESS YOUR LUCK, with the official series premiere at 8pm the following day, Wednesday, June 12. New episodes of PRESS YOUR LUCK will continue to debut Wednesdays at 8pm.

Season 2 of PRESS YOUR LUCK premiered on Sunday, May 31, 2020 at 9pm ET/PT on ABC, with Elizabeth Banks returning as host and executive producer. In the season opener, "I'm Not Crying, You're Crying," Banks is joined by contestants Chad Aull (hometown: Owensboro, Kentucky), Walt Charles (hometown: Arouca, Trinidad and Tobago), and Emily Dowler (hometown: Roscoe, Pennsylvania). PRESS YOUR LUCK continued its second season on Thursdays at 9pm ET/PT on ABC during Fall 2020, beginning September 24.
