Show info and cast
The first ever spinoff of the American Ninja Warrior, Team Ninja Warrior takes the meaning of an obstacle course to a whole new level. Already pretty close to impossible, the set of challenges from American Ninja Warrior has been overhauled and became even more epic. 24 of the strongest competitors from ANW return on the Team Ninja Warrior series in teams, 3 contestants per team – two male and one female. Team Alpha, for example, will be made up of ANW favorites Evan Dollard, Brent Steffentsen and Kacy Catanzaro. The series` new format may lead to the contestants having to pass the course several times in one day, unlike ANW, where once a day was the limit.
Ratings and renewal possibilities
The series was met with great interest as 1.3 million viewers for the premiere episode became the network`s best number for a series premiere in its entire history. It has also beaten several demographic records – in Adults 18-49, Men 18-49 and Total Viewers. The series is set to contain eight episodes that were filmed in California from October 21 to October 23, 2015. Four teams compete in each episode that contains three rounds. Team Ninja Warrior is produced by Esquire and presented by the current American Ninja Warrior hosts Matt Iseman and Akbar Gbaja-Biamlia along with Alex Curry, a journalist and actor. The series is a hit for the network, and besides being exciting on its own, it is also feeding off the mega-popularity of American Ninja Warrior. It seems like a renewal is definitely in the cards for this show that celebrates human strength, tenacity and teamwork.
