Episode 6615 was broadcast on 3 July 2017, as part of Series 77.

Tom Chafer-Cook played Carmel O'Brien, with Tom Chafer-Cook winning 118 – 37. The Dictionary Corner guest was Greg Rusedski, and the lexicographer was Susie Dent.

This was the first regular episode to be played on the "new" blue Countdown set, featuring red and brown accents as well as brighter blue LED screens for CECIL and the contestants' scores. Partial and modified versions of the set had, however, previously been seen in episodes of the 8 out of 10 Cats Mash-ups Series 11 the month before.
