The program, made for Network Ten by Endemol Shine Australia, will replace Family Feud in the schedule.
Co-hosted by Dr Andrew Rochford and comedian and writer Mark Humphries, Pointless sees three teams compete each night in a quiz show that is quite different.
Faced with questions from a wide range of topics, players must produce the least obvious answers in order to progress towards the jackpot.
A smash hit in the UK since 2009 and seen on screens all over the world, Pointless is now set to become a staple of Australian weeknight viewing.
The UK edition of Pointless screens on ABC TV.
