In Cash Cab, New Yorkers and tourists put their knowledge to the test for the chance to win money in the iconic Cash Cab. The Bravo revival will feature an upgraded car and more questions geared toward pop culture fans.

Each episode will feature three games, which begin the moment the contestant enters the Cash Cab. The passenger wins if they can answer enough questions correctly before reaching their destination, but are kicked out of the cab after three wrong answers.

News of the Cash Cab reboot follows Bravo's announcement in April it will reboot the series Blind Date.
