The seventeenth and final season of the U.S. syndicated version of Who Wants to Be a Millionaire? premiered on September 10, 2018 and ended on May 31, 2019. It was the last season in the U.S. syndication.

There will be a set of minor changes, most of them graphical. The studio was upgraded to have darkening multicolor lights. The logo was slightly simplified, removing the central pattern and replacing the ITC Conduit "WHO WANTS TO BE A" text with Helvetica Neue (which looks closer to Copperplate Gothic). The question graphics have also been changed, replacing the traditional lozenge look Millionaire has been using in one form or another since 1999 with a more abstract, slant and bevel heavy package. The last remnant of the Shuffle format, the Bank, has also been removed. The Jeff Lippencott and Mark T. Williams soundtrack is still there though.
