Plot Synopsis

Hosted by actor and comedian Joel McHale, CARD SHARKS is a game show, where one turn of a playing card can make you a winner or a loser. The game begins with two players facing off in a head-to-head elimination race where the winning player claims a $10,000 cash prize and a chance to turn that amount into a life-changing payday. Then, the winning contestant risks their prize on predicting seven final cards. The player leaves the game with whatever amount of money they have in their bank after their prediction, and results are revealed on the flip of their seventh and final card.

The second season of CARD SHARKS premiered on Sunday, October 18, 2020 at 10pm ET/PT on ABC.
