Deadline recently reported that the legendary CBS game show would no longer be filmed in Television City, California.
Television City is the Los Angeles complex where the show had been taped since its “1972 relaunch,” according to the publication.
Fremantle, the company that produces The Price is Right, will now film the show at Haven Studios, a “new facility” near Glendale, California.
Even though the show’s studios aren’t moving too far from their original spot, some fans are still bothered by the move, expressing their concerns online.
“Say WHAT?!? You mean to tell me that the network’s longest running daytime game show is leaving the Bob Barker Studio forever and ever? They can’t!…,” one fan declared.
Another cosigned: “I can’t believe they would do such a thing.”
A third fan added: “The Price is Right not at the Bob Barker studio? Sad day for TPIR fans.”
Fans referred to the studio as the “Bob Barker studio” because Bob Barker, 99, iconically hosted The Price is Right from 1972-2007.

The Price Is Right revolves around contestants competing by identifying accurate pricing of merchandise to win cash and prizes.
THE SHOW’S ORIGIN
In 1956, the first version of The Price Is Right was released on television with Bill Cullen as its host.
A few years later, the show aired its final episode in 1965.
Bob Stewart, the creator of the series, premiered a new version The Price Is Right in 1972.
The premise of the game show requires contestants to make successive bids on merchandise prizes.
The goal is to bid closest to the actual retail price of the prize, without going over.
Contestants are chosen from the studio audience, and arrive on stage with the show’s catchphrase: “Come on down!”
While many concepts from the first edition of the series were brought back for the reboot, new gameplay elements were also included.
With over nine thousand episodes since its debut, the 50th season of The Price Is Right premiered in September of 2021.
