Vanna White is not giving up her puzzle board when Ryan Seacrest takes over for Pat Sajak as host of “Wheel of Fortune.” In fact, she will be there for his first two seasons.

Sony Pictures Television has announced that White has extended her contract with the game show - taking her through the 2025-26 season.

Her contract was expiring at the end of the current 41st season, which Sajak announced earlier this year would be his last.

White and Sajak have worked together since 1982 when “Wheel” began airing in syndication.

Confirmation of White's contract extension was announced while Seacrest was taping an upcoming interview segment for “Sunday Today with Willie Geist.”

Seacrest called it “great news” and said that he has “been excited to work with her” and “can't wait.”

He will make his “Wheel of Fortune” debut next fall. Top Stories
