MTV’s reality show, The Challenge is renewed for Season 36.
The long-running, iconic MTV show, The Challenge is returning for another season. The renewal announcement comes from the current season’s, The Challenge: Total Madness success. Total Madness is set to be the franchise’s highest rated season in years solidifying MTV’s #1 cable network spot amongst P18-34.
In the current season of The Challenge, veterans of the show team up with newbies from shows such as Big Brother, American Ninja Warrior, and Amazing Race. Contestants undergo fierce challenges and attempt to dodge elimination. The jackpot for the winner of Total Madness is $1,000,000. The finale will air July 16 on MTV.
Current cast member, DEE Nguyen will not be joining the show’s finale. This is due to some incentive comments made regarding the recent Black Lives Matter protests and George Flyod murder. Nguyen has been fired from the show and is not able to compete for the grand prize.
News regarding the theme or who will be featured in Season 36 have not been announced. But we will definitely be waiting for any new because there can never be enough of The Challenge.
