In 2015, the Kirshenbaum family of Omaha went on “Family Feud,” and it didn’t go too well.

“We were losers,” said Anna Kirshenbaum.

But now Anna and her 2015 team — which includes her parents (Bill and Linda Kirshenbaum), her brother (Brad Kirshenbaum) and her cousin (Dawn Jorn) — are getting another shot at game show glory.

You can watch them make their (triumphant?) return to “Family Feud” at 6 p.m. Friday on The CW.

“We were excited to come back and hopefully get redemption,” Anna said. (The family filmed its episode a while back, but can’t talk about the outcome until the show airs.)

But Anna can say who the team’s weakest link is.

“My dad,” she said, laughing. “He’ll kill me for saying that.”

Anna’s father, Bill, owns the Omaha boutique Periwinkles.

A few other details about the family’s “Family Feud” experience:

» Steve Harvey remembered the family from 2015. Well, he said he remembered them. “I’m not sure if he was just saying that to be nice,” Anna said, “or if we truly made a lasting impression.”

» This time on the show wasn’t as nerve-racking as the first time. Being on “Family Feud,” Anna said, “is a stressful situation as much as it is fun.”

» They got to shoot the show in Hollywood this time. (Their first show was shot in Atlanta.)

“It was at Universal Studios,” Anna said. “So we were able to see behind the scenes and see Steve Harvey’s trailer. People on tours were taking pictures of us. We were right next to where ‘The Voice’ is filmed. So it felt like more of that authentic TV show experience. I loved it.”
