Chris Harrison is going to host “Who Wants to Be a Millionaire — and that’s his final answer.

Harrison, who hosts ABC’s “The Bachelor,” has been tapped to also host the long-running game show “Who Wants to Be a Millionaire” when the show returns for its 14th season in the fall.

Harrison will replace “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” star Terry Crews, who is bowing out to concentrate on his other film and television projects. But fans of “The Bachelor” have nothing to fear. Harrison will continue to host the popular reality dating show in addition to his new duties on “Millionaire.”

Harrison became host of “The Bachelor” and “The Bachelorette” in 2001. He also has hosted the spin-off reality show, “Bachelor Pad,” as well as the all-star reunions from previous seasons of “The Bachelor” and “The Bachelorette,” the last two years.

“Who Wants to Be a Millionaire” exploded onto American television with original host Regis Philbin in 1999. It entered into syndication in 2002 with host Meredith Vieira, who departed in 2013. Cedric the Entertainer took the reigns for one season, before turning the show over to Crews.
