Other rotating guests for upcoming episodes will include Joel McHale, Chrissy Metz, Martin Short, J.B. Smoove and Meghan Trainor, NBC announced Thursday.

The series kicks off with a two-night debut event Aug. 9-10.

"The premiere features Fallon and Hamm competing in an episode dedicated to the late Betty White, a frequent player of the game and wife of the original Password host Allen Ludden," NBC said in a press release.

"In each of the hour-long episodes, a celebrity and Fallon will pair up with contestants over two games. Players from each team guess a secret password using only one-word clues in an effort to take home up to $25,000."

The game show originally aired in 1961 and has been revived numerous times since its first run.

Fallon played the game as a segment on his NBC talk chat programs Late Night with Jimmy Fallon and The Tonight Show before bringing it back again as a show in its own right.
